After he was beaten up, nearly knifed and mugged last night, he has vowed never to go out drinking with that crowd again. He drank 2 bottles of buckfast (I couldnt even manage 1) and was mugged.
He's been hanging around with them for about 5 months it seems now, and last night he told me all about what they get up to.
Apparently in the last 5 months he has started drinking more than I do, Started smoking weed more than I do, taken E and smoked "skunk with smack in it", and been frequently involved in gang fights with bottles and knives, beaten people up and hes only just turned 14. Its seriously fucked up, but he says hes not going back there again. Most people who live in glasgow will probably know about all the stuff that goes on in the clyde tunnel underpass at the weekends: he was involved in all of that. He bought a shellsuit for £90 yesterday but says hes going to return it and buy something decent instead. He's said that hes gonna start trying in school cos he doesent wanna turn out like the guys who mugged him last night.
So i think "yay".
And I promise this is the last of my self indulgent "agony aunt" posts about it.
