He's starting on nicotine patches today. Convincing him to stop drinking is harder, since he mostly does it on weekends and thinks that it's not often enough to contribute, but I'll keep trying. He is also working on diminishing his caffeine use.
He is not currently taking any medication for his schizophrenia, and isn't seeing a psychiatrist regularly -- aside from the headaches, he functions completely normally now. OTC medications don't help the pain at all, unfortunately.
