I know it's long but I'm really trying to put as many details as possible without writing a novel. I'm really having a tough time deciding on what I should do. If you need to know more then this post a reply and I will answer as best as I can. Thank you in advance for the help. So I come home last night after being gone for a week and decide I should hang out with the nephew... thank god I did. We were both depressed and by the time I got there he had already been drinking whiskey for 3 hours and its about 1230am. Well about an hour or so later his "friends" show up and tell him how this guy is talking shit about him and how he needs to go kick his ass yadda yadda yadda and get him to drink more and more. Well he starts getting violent at this point running down his street after this truck screaming obscenities at it and I have to go chase him down several times. He winds up starting to punch himself in the face (over a dozen times in all), punching the mailbox, garage, neighbors building, etc. He punched himself so hard I he had at least one black eye, and his right jaw was swollen like a mofo. So then they call this kid, and tell him to come over So once he gets there they tell my nephew it's not the guy, but then once he's been there for a bit they tell him it's him so somehow I managed to stand in between them and tell this guy to leave. So for the next 2 hours it's nothing but them getting him drunker (after me asking them to leave, and they won't) and getting him more pissed off. My nephew literally blacked out in the middle of the street while I was trying to help him over to the swing in his backyard so he could lay down. What do his friends do? Laugh and go "he'll be ok in a few minutes leave him alone" some friends! So finally his friends leave around 3 something his friends leave and I'm left to babyset him... finally around 5 I talk him into letting me carry him into the house. Well he decides he doesn't want me to carry him because he's not a baby and he just wants to lean on me. Everything was good until we got to his door. I asked him if he was good since it was all of 4 feet to his bed. He said yeah and I walked out of the house and heard a THUD, he couldn't figure out how to open the door so he just fell thru it apparently how his parents didn't wake up is beyond me since their rooms are right next to each other. Now I am left with a dellima.... do I go over today and take the whiskey away, or talk to his dad, or both? Thanks for reading all of this I need help with my decision. Edit: My nephew will turn 16 in 20 days, and is known for rounds of deep depression that mostly go untreated. I'm really worried about him but I don't want to ruin the bond we have, if he needs help, or pretty much anything he knows he can come to me. When I went thru all my shit 2 years ago he was there for me like nobody else was. Normally he's a happy drunk, but I've never seen him when he's drank whiskey like he did last night. No I did not supply him the alcohol his sisters boyfriend that we all despise did, but I was there when he did it.
