I just watched the interviews with the deceased's father, mother, and girlfriend, and I honestly couldn't help feeling a bit of frustration at his father! I know it's a really crappy situation because no matter what, he didn't deserve to suffer the loss of his beloved son. But the way he talks about his son, about how he never had to have "the talk" about partying and alcohol and stuff just makes me wonder if something like this could have been prevented if maybe he had in fact had a proper discussion with his son about alcohol management. I mean he said he was on the DARE board which is in my view a bit of a joke, because abstinence only drug/alcohol education simply doesn't work, and I feel like having that sort of influence in the household ends up with one of those typical situations where a kid doesn't know how to manage themselves when they move into the real world.
@MYOS1634 You're totally right, I should have been more cognizant of that factor. I know that I was always bad at doing pushups because even when I was in shape I was on the heavier side.
