a year ago today amy winehouse died

one of the best things i learned from Bob Forrest about how to deal with friends

and loved ones who are struggling with drug and alcohol addiction

is to be as loving and as unconditionally kind as possible.

he said no one can be forced into rehab

and for many people, including himself, you have to go several times.

if not dozens of times.

he said the 12 step programs dont work for everyone

but there are other rehab facilities other than those.

anyways, just like Jesus’ last commandment,

Bob suggests that we just love each other.
