first I am sorry so long but its a detailed story, and second I am sorry if this is the wrong forum, I figured I'd give it a shot here. thank you to anyone who can help...
ok.. my boyfriend is 21 goin on 22 years old. he smokes close to two packs a day, drinks alcohol on a daily basis (I'll get to that), eats super unhealthy, works on houses but thats bout all the excersise he gets.
about a month and half ago, he went into the hospital. he had a horrible stabbing pain in his stomach and basically all over his body. he was in the hospital for a week they ran tests did a colonoscopy, and down the throat tube thing, and fuond he had a hiatic hernia (sp?).
the doctors told him he MUST NOT drink ANY beer at all unless gluton free. he had to be aon a gluton free diet. noooo beer. which is his huge problem. he was a case a nite guy. I know he has a drinkin prob but to him its not a prob its just a hobby wit his friends.
well he did good for a while not drinkin beer for a few weeks and eatin gluton free. I was so proud of him. to cure his need for a drink he found out he could drink rum it has no gluton so he was doin that instead.
but then he went back to the beer and he is eating bad again. and I am so afraid of him goin back to the hospital.
he drinks every nite crazy style with his friends, he's always smokin, he eats fast food all the time, he has serious heartburn problems and now this gluton problem whcih could really hurt him.
my question is how do I get thru to him? he will prob just yell at me for harping him if I tell him how worried I am i dont want to seem like a mom... but I am worried. his mom knows he is doin all this we cant control him. I want to scare him into it or something... anyone have any advice as to how to get thru to a 21 year old stubborn boy's mind??.... any help..
and sorry if Isound like an annoying whiny girlfriend, I Am super worried. when he was in the hospital it was so scary how much pain he was in. you'd think he'd have been scared too...
