No More Ruined Holidays by Chris S.
It doesn’t have to be Christmas, Thanksgiving or New Years’ eve. I remember having a Tequila Easter playing monopoly. Don’t know who won or if we finished the game. But, the phone call the next day let me know I was not in the best behavior mode.
Many people get busted for DUI’s during the holidays. It must make a person feel special when called to come bail someone out of jail on that special occasion.
What about the false promises made that it won’t happen this year. The playing of the victim - that it "wasn’t my fault." And the best move of all: getting too wasted to even show up. Then the excuse of, “I am not hurting anyone but myself.”
Giving the Best Gift of All
The greatest present I’ve been able to give others’ was the giving of myself. Clean and Sober.
