In this short tale you sum up very eloquently the delusions of alcoholics and the oft repeated phrase they use to justify just one more. It is such a sad disease and the struggle is monumental. I am very empathic towards anyone who is grasped in the clutches of addiction. Well done Bob.

Hello there, Bob, this is a fantastic little dribble you've penned. A very powerful story in such few words. Alcoholism is tough to deal with.
Great job! I will have to catch up on your book soon, I was still in the beginning, I haven't forgotten about, I just don't like to jump in way ahead. Once I'm settled in moving, I sit and read it up to date. My apologies.

    Thanks for looking at this short piece. Before I started writing novels I had a ton of short stories and poems dating all the way back for nearly 16 years on Fanstory. My fave short story is "The Interview " from ten yeRS A GO OR SO.
    I did win a lot of contests in the day. LOL Don't you apologize for anything, Dear Heart. I appreciate all that you do. Bless you. Bob

Very good entry here. Wishing you the best in the contest. The last line is what makes the entire dribble extremely effective. Says so much and wraps it all up. It's like the perfect punch. I like your writing. Blessings, Cathy

This is great Bob. You tell an interesting story of Clyde in this brief dribble flash fiction for the contest. Alcoholism is a wicked addiction and the alcoholic does think he/she can stop at any time. It has ruined many many lives.

Well done.
Blessings
Janet

I wrote a 100 word Drabble. They are hard. The writer had but 51 words to work with. He introduced the character and the setting. He tells us and show us the characters mood. He shows us what happens then, which is a foretelling of what will happen to the character. Exceptionally good job.

Good little short, Bob. Poor Clive seems to be going through rough times. Nothing worse than being caught in an addiction like alcohol. Makes a person feel like they have no control over their own life. Good luck in the contest.

Pulled into the Galaxy of the writers words with such mastery and vision.
He has brought the moment to a perfect Halt.
Pulling the reader to another part of the city, with coffee grounds
settling into words, in a moment town lights dim... bringing all, to a single breath... how nice Bob

I wish you the best in the contest. You pick a good theme, one that seems hardly discussed especially when it concerns our youth, even the Chicago Police has increased in this category. I saw many heartfelt souls during my career.
As always, your work is worth reading. GOOD LUCK

Compliant as far as word count is concerned, this little piece echoes the belief of every alcoholic that ever lived until they admit to themselves that they are alcoholics.

This guy is in a very bad place. A place where life's challenges or the many unfavorable circumstances one can find himself which sometimes lead to drinking and depression. This is a real moment.

    Oh, I know, Phillip. I have been there many years ago and through the grace of God, I survived to tell the tale. Sounds like you might know also. Thank you for the six star review, my friend. Bob

    No man can go through life without this experience, Bob, I think. Many don't live through it to say they have,
