We forget sometimes that JBJ and Richie are human also.

I have a good friend that's an alcoholic, getting worse and worse now. I can only do so much to help, and he's bring me down too. I want to be there for him, but anger takes over at times too and if he is lying to himself all the time, how the fuck can I help. I want to just walk away.

That could be how JBJ feels now too. Richie's playing was down he just sees him everyday hurting himself and doesn't want to see it anymore.

I've started hanging out with other people and I feel a lot better now. I feel like shit sometimes, like I've turned a back on a friend and I barely talk to him now, but I had to do it for my own life.

The final straw for me, was I was at a local bar drinking myself. I came out with a friend who was driving but he wanted to leave so I took a cab home and my friend (the alcoholic) just got off work and came by to say hi. He had 1 beer after work and was heading home, he asked if I needed a ride, so I said sure, you just had the 1 right? he said yes...we proceeded to get into a car accident where he slightly rear ended someone at a stop light, it wasn't bad but the driver smelled alcohol on his breath and called the police...he blew a .22 which is nearly 3 times the legal limit. He lied to me and put my life at risk, plus the poor family he hit. That's when I decided I can't be a part of it anymore.

I know the story doesn't mean anything to this situation, but it could be when richie bowed out for whatever reason, JBJ is finally in a better situation where he can relax more and not worry about his friend getting into that "car crash" every single show.
