A is for Alcoholic

For years I lived with an alcoholic.
If it is true alcoholics have a personal hell, so do the people on the other side of that bottle.
You’re trapped never able to have friends over, never able to attend a social function, never able to plan ANYTHING because the alcoholic in your life can wreck those plans in the time it takes to empty a pint of Jack.

First you lie to everyone about why you can’t do this or that, then you make deals with your Alcoholic and even throw down ultimatums and then you get real about it.
It was never anything you could control and you have realize you’re responsible for your own happiness and sometimes having happiness involves not having that person in your life if they aren’t interested in walking on a healthier road.

I’ve talked with a lot of people in relationships with alcoholics over the years and it’s amazing how similar all of our stories were with our experiences and challenges.
I can say, for myself, I found happiness. 🙂

And I love making Artist Trading Cards or ACEO’s (Art Cards, Editions and Originals) – you’ve been warned.
