I do not drink alcohol however, we have been trying to help a family member who is an alcoholic. He wanted to quit or so he said. We took him in and took great care of him until he decided that he was not happy unless he was drinking. I was reading some emails and found this in one that I had saved from years ago. It just reminded me of that family member. The difference is that this is funny but in real life, it is not funny. How to Roast a turkey for Easter Step 1: Get the turkey out of the fridge.

hehe...thanks for sharing that. It's really hard to let go of some bad habit such as smoking and will take a lot of willpower to be able to do it. I'm in no position to judge your family member as i'm still trying to quit smoking hehe

We are very fortunate that we do not have either of those problems, drinking or smoking. I guess it must really be hard to quit though. He seemed sincere but he stayed sobor for four months before he started again

your right the email is funny but not funny when it is actually happening to you, alcholism is a disease, yes one we may have brought on ourselves but it is a disease nonetheless.
