My 'stay free' friend - I haven't seen him since his wedding, but my mum is good friends with a good friend of his mum so I hear the stories, drink and drugs and depression and debilitating medical conditions. As a teenager he got expelled from quaker school, which I always found particularly impressive. I don't think i even know how to get in touch now, although of course I do, the friends of mum network is there and ready.
