Update on my friend…

various type of alcoholic drinks isolated on white

So I had been waiting all day yesterday, worried about getting a phone call from J. (See? I have lettered men, too Jad!!) I really doubted he would even ATTEMPT to contact the hospital and talk to his doc about his drinking.

I got a phone call at 7:26pm.

“I called. They will call me if they have a cancellation otherwise I go in on Wednesday.”

“Go in for what J?”

“For my knee.”

“For what J?”

“My knee.”

“And”

“And for that other thing.”

“What other thing J?”

“You know.”

(silence from me)

.

.

.

(More silence from me)

“My drinking.”

I about cried.

He admitted it to me.

Finally.

It’s a start.

J has two stunningly beautiful daughters. He doesn’t want to lose them.

Or me.

Up to him now.

  1. I hope it works out for J, keeping my fingers crossed
    Oh, and not sure if you noticed I started out with letters but then I got creative and began coming up with fake names… It was Mon Capitaines idea…hmm or was it The Rodfathers? faaark I forget!

    1. I know that. And I told him that a dozen times too. I also told him the consequences of the wrong decision was to never see his daughters or I again. And he knows I WILL WALK AWAY.

  2. Reblogged this on Welcome to my little corner of the institution… and commented:

    I told y’all about my friend from a year ago. For a couple months after this conversation and another one where he told me his sponsor was now his girlfriend (raises left eyebrow), several texts….I finally sent him a letter. Stating that he had failed and that he needed to remove my contact information from his phone, his address book and his life. I was done.

    I have not heard from him in almost a year. It makes me sad and I miss him like my left arm. But it was his choice not mine. He knew the consequences. I have also found out his twin daughters do not talk to him anymore either.

    I hope that bottle keeps him warm at night.
