    He wasn’t letting on how much he has been drinking. He had visitation with his 4-year-old son on Sunday and didn’t want to drink so he quit for that day.

    He went into such horrible withdrawals and was projectile vomiting and was in tremendous pain.

    His mom took him to the ER – his pancreas is huge and he had trouble breathing. They put him in a medically-induced coma and put him on a respirator. His liver enzymes are off the chart. He’ll be on the respirator for another week, and if he survives this, he will spend the next 30 days in the hospital.

    He won’t remember any of this, so him mom took a picture of him on the respirator. If he lives through this, she wants him to see just a portion of what has happened.

    He is 32 years old.

    Please son’t try to stop drinking on your own – it’s so dangerous.
