I Am Surrounded By Alcoholic Idiots

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 22 People

    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.

    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!!

    Talking to idiots kills my brain cells. It takes way too much energy to educate someone that's been an idiot for so long. Why can't people just read books?
