    Safe Now

    I've now thrown them out of the house and made them go to the pub instead. I saw the warning signs and took precautions. They're now somewhere between my house and the pub, I've no idea whether they made it or not. But, I am safe from them!!

    I Used to Be Surrounded By Alcoholic Idiots . . .

    But, I changed my whole lifestyle.  I divorced my alky husband, moved, changed my friends, learned to meditate, and several other things.  It took years but I'm happy that part of my life is over.  It was very stressful and chaotic.
