Do I Have a Choice?
Well, Anonymous Fellowships and the like, are where those of us who blame professionally end up! The last stop on life's journey. Patsies, Finks, Cops, Criminals, Federales, Bounty Hunters, Advocates and Collectors all without ID. Addiction is the only way we are able to cope with the pain of our anger, and, it's what happens when you've worked all your life to help others understand what's wrong. They get really good at blaming you for your guidance and direction. All the bad decisions you saved them from, and all the harm you've prevented results in a huge resentment.
Maybe it would have be better to focus on our own decisions, and make our own mistakes, so we can learn our own lessons. At least we won't be resentful of them and dependent upon you at the end of the day. We'll be much better examples of how to live, and we won't need a drink to feel better. If your only options come in the form of toxic substances, where can we turn, what can we do?
Doctor: "That's an awfully painful version of reality don't you think?"
Patient: "No doctor, I'd rather live with the truth, but if that's a problem for you, I'll promise not to tell. Do you think that would be okay?"
Doctor: "Well, I hope you understand that some of these statements you've been making could be harmful. How can we have your assurance of this agreement?"
Patient: "I take Cash, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express."
