i found out the other day that one of my very close friends father is a coke addict. some history here...my friends father always hated me, he thought i was an obnoxious piece of shit with no respect for anything (probably a little true, but that has nothign to do with the thread). my friends dad had a business that had been doing worse and worse over the 90's, and the acustomed lifestyle of their wealthy family did nothing to preserve the life of their company. some time last summer, my friends dad had a heartattack. unknown to me or my friend at the time, it was due to a cocaine overdose. his business eventually failed, and they had to downgrade their lifestyle (smaller house, but still nice by most standards, etc...). now, i think this guys dad is a complete asshole and he'd be better off to his family dead, but the fact of the matter is that hes still someones father. so im considering if i should tell my friend and have his father get help, or if i should just let them be...?
