Do your recovering addicts/alcoholics not go any where that alcohol is served? I am just kind of curious because maybe this is where it all went wrong. J is 21 nearing 22 actually. I really did not think it was a big deal for him to be out after 10:00pm nor did I think it was wrong that he was at a club to watch a band. Is it the after 10:00pm thing or the fact that he was at an establishment that offered alcohol?
I am really confused. I thought the idea was for him to live a healthy lifestyle in the real world. In the real world some restaurants sell alcohol. If J wants to use, I no longer believe there is a damn thing I can do about it. Hell, the last time he used, he had drugs delivered to our home the night before going into rehab. He doesn’t need to drive anywhere to get his drug of choice. Am I really being that stupid? Maybe I am? Is this the denial that my friendly blogger was trying to bring to my attention?
Are we harming J by allowing him to go out? Which seems to go against the idea that only J has control over what kind of life he will lead. I have a feeling I am going to hear an ear full…I am almost afraid to post this.
