SVmikeFirst off congrats on your staying sober. Next I think you are missing the point. If dude stops dicking around now and listens to his Dad and teachers then he will not have to deal with the issues you have in life. As of now your story sounds like you put your parents through hell, Spent a shit ton of their money and still didn't give a fuck. Most parents don't have the resources to send their kids to boarding school or multiple treatment centers, especially for someone that doesn't want the help. The better advice would be, Learn from your mistakes and don't go down the same road you did. Again congrats for your staying sober but saying getting kick out worked for you is not a true statement.
You're totally right, I should have been more ear about that. I totally regret everything that happened and if I stopped fucking around in the beginning then I could probably be in a better place. At the same time, I'm happy we're I'm at now.
Overall, it would definitely be best to quit while you're ahead. You'll definitely save yourself and your parents a lot of shitty times. On the flip side, if you don't and decide to go down a similar path I did, working your ass off can get you where you need to be.
The choice is if you want things to be good now then stop. If you don't care, then it can take years to get to a good spot in your life and with your parents.
I'm sorry, I wasn't trying to glorify getting kick out and being a jackass
