Short Thought 102 (drinking)

He drank whenever we went out. He offered, after the issue came up, that he would limit his drinks to three. I remember thinking that was a good and fair concession. I’d like to go back and have a talk with that woman.

    I have so many of those if only, or what if, or why didn’t I moments. I think you have to actually live through them to then be able to congratulate yourself on the fact that 1. you made it, and 2. you are so much wiser now, and mostly likely 3. No amount of ‘knowing’ at the time would have changed anything.

      Oh, I’m not so sure. In that case, and others, I knew better, I truly did, and I overrode what I knew. Now, as in these days and ahead, I can’t say I don’t understand there’s a price tag for doing that. –Colette

      The number of “functioning alcoholics” is large. People think if they haven’t been fired from a job or smashed up their car or have something else calamitous happen, that the alcoholic is the other guy/gal. It’s painful, as I’m sure you know, to watch or care for somebody living like this.
