So my son, who has used and abused drugs and alcohol in the past, and prob is an addict of alcohol, had been dry for a while. His wonderful girlfriend was part of the reason. They are coming to visit this wkend, and I was asking him what I could pick up at the store for them. He mentions sev things, including that he's be having a couple of beers while watching tv. I gently said, I didn't know you drank at all, and he said, well yeah when I watch football, maybe I'll have a couple, and I don't have a problem with it, he threw out. I said, well, with all of the family history of abuse with it, it scares me a bit. So...that's all I said, and he didnt' blow up, which he might have in the past, and does he have a problem or not? Well, time will tell, but I don't need to fret and worry. If he has a problem, it is his to do something about, and I can't fix it. Sometimes we have to tell ourselves: NOt MY PROBLEM. It sounded mean when I first started saying it a while back, but it gets easier, which stirkes me as funny for some reason. Anyway, I do have enought of my own problems to try to fix!
