Mike and I always have the best conversations on our walk through the darkened parking lot after work. He’s young, younger than me at least, and learning to be completely unselfconscious about his feelings. It’s kind of refreshing to be able to have conversations without all the bullshit posturing.
We both expressed concern about another friend of our who recently got fired. He has a drinking/drug problem. He was in recovery, he stopped at some point because it wasn’t for him. He stayed on the wagon, but one day he fell off and he hasn’t looked back.
I feel like he’s falling into his old patterns again, I liked him a lot better when he was sober.
This will probably just push him over the edge again.
I really wish things weren’t like this – for all of our sakes.
