That's really good. I'm so happy that you don't have to worry about him being on the streets.

Word of warning - or two...

Try not to get *too* 'un-detached' even with good news. It's really good for him to *not* think it can be forgotten easily.

Trust is earned, 'ya know.

And if he's really addicted, don't be supprised or even too disapointed if he slips. The answer to that is 'well, get back on the horse and get back to it.' And remind him he's only a loser if he quits trying. And ask him what he learned this time.

Odds are it will happen. But each slip can be a learning experience.

And each day he doesn't slip is a miracle.
