Yesterday I was in the card room and it was my turn to sit out so I snapped some photos. (wink) I lost three dollars and twenty cents too. But then I had poker and won fifty bucks so I'm even, right?
Today is one of the MahJong gals birthdays so we are having cake! CAKE! Yee haw! Cake.
Yesterday I was watching Dr. Oz after canasta and the show was about addiction. It was a really good show. It talked about how the brain works with substances, including alcohol which is most definitely a drug, just a legal one. Now I am not here to tell you not to have a drink, I do myself occasionally, but it explained what happens in your brain and how you become dependent on these substances. And why addiction is a disease like any other disease and we should treat it as such. Anyway I enjoyed the show and hope more people understand addiction a bit better.
I remember when the duck was at his lowest point and I told him that I loved him no matter what. I just was no longer going to try to "fix" him. Or clean up after him, he would be responsible for anything he did. Co-dependency is as much a disease as addiction.
Think about this too, when you give money to one of those people begging on the corner you may be the one that gives them the money that buys the drug that kills them. Don't be responsible for them.
Okay I'll step down from the soapbox now, sorry for the rant. It's just a subject that triggers me in a huge way.
Have a wonderful Wednesday. I will too. Remember I'll have some cake!
