You never doubted me,but it came to the point where I as doubting myself. I will remember each day how I let you take over my life and what I need to do to keep you from doing it again.

You know they don’t serve alcohol in the park. Worst of all, you have a serious jealousy streak in you, bordering on psychotic. How could you come between my family and me? You couldn’t handle even a few special days off so others could shine. I hope you won’t come back to alcohol again. I still attend the meetings and read here.
