    Yessssssssss
    Not anymore .

    what do other people/ or your parents do to make you crazy?
    Ask too many questions. That still pisses me off.
    And giving direct orders as if I was in the army, without considering that I'm not a robot. (My ESTJ father still does this.)

    what did you wanna be when you grew up?
    Not a soldier.
    A detective like Sherlock Holmes .

    did you do better with structure? clear guidelines?
    No.
    Still don't.
    But I play my cards right (creativity, excuses, etc), and manage to just do fine.

    do you need to know the why behind the rules for them to be of any value?
    Structure/familiarity is safety is it not?

    @Nerd Girl, @entropie, @Istbkleta, thanks for your responses, I appreciate you guys and gals! We actually had a talk today about it today, he himself brought it up . He wants to tone it down big time so that is great news!!! I supported him and put in my two cents as well. The thing that sucks is that he has said this 3 times before, and ends up in the same old cycle a month or 2 later... I guess we will see what happens this time around, crossing my fingers !

    Tell him you love him. Make sure he knows that you really really love him. As ENTPs it's hard not to love people who loves you though ENTPs don't show this much. And if a person an ENTP loves tells that their actions are hurting you, ENTPs would change their ways. Might not readily admit they were wrong, but do realize.

    This would surely work on me and I would surely try to change.

    Good luck .

    You should also suggest rehab.

    Aw, sorry to hear that, Sparrow.

    Can you think of what the temptation trigger was that sucked him back into it the last few times? Is there a way for him to remove himself from that temptation?

    (Think of it like getting all the chips, cookies, and ice cream out of the house when you decide you want to lose weight and keep it off. If someone else in the house is a junk food junkie and keeps tons of that stuff around and eats it in front of him, that is going to make it very difficult.)

    If it's his friends and they always party like that, that is going to make it really difficult to break free for good. He needs to think long and hard about how to avoid those tempting scenarios in the future.
