When I tried it I felt better than I’d ever had, so… …I just kept on doing it. – Why?
– I don’t know. I thought we were closer than

– This isn’t us! – This is not who we are!
– Can you please stop? Just… …please both of you stop! There are moments that I look at him… …and I wonder who he is. How’s our boy, David? Because I’m not giving up now. Never. You always got to be controlling everything. It doesn’t make any sense. – You’re controlling me right now!
– This is not you. Let us help you. I don’t want your help.
Don’t you understand that? I had such grand plans. He’d graduate from college… …do something amazing… …and now I just want him to not die. Who are you, Nic? This is me, Dad, here. This is who I am! If you could take all the words in the language… …it still wouldn’t describe how much I love you. I love you more than everything. I’m really sorry, Dad. It’s hard as hell to get sober… …but I love my family. I want them to be proud of me. I understand how scared you are. It’ll pass though. It always does. Nic, what you have is extraordinary… …and you’re going to get it back. You’re going to find it again.
