I am still surprised that some people just only think of themselves. My husband has a friend who is visiting and staying with us. He is a recovering alcoholic and is here to work on his steps for A.A. He is back to make amends for things that he has done and to clear up other unresolved issues. That is great and as a decent person and friend I removed all of the alcohol in the house before he got here. I threw away the two beers and poured out the left over vodka from New Year's (if that tells you how much I drink). My husband's friend is doing well fighting his substance abuse but has other problems particularly with a girl that lives here. He has been getting depressed because he is single. Well last night we had some friends over including one friend who has known our house guest for more than 10 years for game night. That little punk (who is B.F.F. with our recovering alcoholic friend) pulls out two forties of New Castle and starts drinking. The next thing I know is that our recovering friend is saying how much he wants to drink. (I wonder why?) It's not just that drinking in front of a newly recovering alcoholic is poor form but also that I have an 11 month old baby and I cannot have a drunk person getting out of hand around my child. The guy who was drinking is not an alcoholic but he wanted beer so he had some. Which leaves me to clean up a mess. Today I have had to have very intense conversations, obtain junk food, and find local A.A. meetings for my guest to go to so that he doesn't drink. Why didn't that little crap head think first and realize that drinking two beers would affect others. Some people are just jerks.
