My friend has a step-brother who was my friend too. He had a problem with drinking, and some other bad stuff. Eventually he was involved in a couple of car wrecks where luckily nobody was hurt, but he now has that reputation, and he was my friend. You should see how much my friend hurt from these decisions her step-brother has made. He is just a mess, graduated high school, but no college. He’s ruined. He could have turned out great but instead all of this happened. He actually used to work for my dad also, so I cared for him, more than just being my friends step-brother. The message from this story is don’t drink or do drugs or even hang out with the wrong people – it can ruin your life – and the people who care for you.
