Sushi... when "counseling", it is best to be a supportive friend who helps explore options rather than being someone who tells him what he should do. That's your opinion and you are allowed to tell him what you think... but always remember to state that as your opinion. He has a path and his choices may not agree with what you think is best.

Guys. I just want to thank you for your advice. It changed what I was going to do. Now I have to wake him up. You are really good friends. I just wish I could meet you all in person.
I usually am not faced with this type of situation. My friends are responsible. But this time things got a bit...... odd.
((((((((((((((((((((HUG))))))))))))))))))))

Your a good man, Sushi and a good friend, whether the guy knows it or not. If he is normally a good guy as you say, maybe he is screaming out for help the only way he can?? Rest easy, you did the best thing!!

Well, Texas thats one of the nicest things I have heard in while.
And Mission Accomplished. All is right under the sun. Well..... for me. Not sure about him. But the BIG thing is, he didnt drink and drive. They are warm and snuggly back at his place. As is I. Once angin thanks everyone for giving me advice. It changed my night. (the flowers are for the ladies 'Z' )
