@LucyDiamond:  Honestly? I think we all have one or two of “those friends” that we just want to shake some sense into…but I don’t :-/ If they come to me for advice, I give it; and if they get shitty about the advice I give them, I advise they ask someone else next time.

I can understand the drive to want to save your friends from themselves, but at the end of the day he will only change his circumstances when he gets sick of living that way.

You cant help anyone who does not want to help themselves. If you feel really compelled you can look up a list of homeless shelters. He can stay at a shelter or with a friend (not you) while he finds a room to rent. I dont think he needs to be lectured, he will figure things oit himself. Sorry if i sound non-caring, but when I was younger I wasted way too much energy trying to help people who did not want help, and it never turned out well for me.
