So sorry to hear this. Sounds like he’s determined to learn his lessons the hard way! It will be heartbreaking for you to watch, but you need to keep reminding yourself that you did everything you could do to help him. Hang in there and stay strong; you are doing the right thing by staying out of it from this point forward.
