Oh they always think they can stop anytime. Quitting alcohol isn't an easy thing. People need to realize that. This is very well written. Good luck in the contest.

Congratulations on this contest entry! You have the disease of alcoholism down pat! It's the gift that keeps on giving, and the affliction that hides the truth from the person. You did a great job of describing alcoholism and it's trajectory. Thanks, and good luck! Caroline

First Bob, good luck in the Dribble Flash Fiction contest. It was short and to the point. It provided precise information which could be interpreted in a variety of ways. Well done, blessings.

"I can stop anytime I want." Isn't that what they all say? This guy is really pretty well gone. He can't resist that drink of vodka, though. He seems bent on drinking himself to death. You certainly give an excellent snapshot of the man. His situation is hopeless. Best of luck in the contest. judi

This is very well done Bob. From the picture image to the final statement you have a great entry for the dribble contest. I have know several alcoholics' and that is what they all say until the time they are forced to quit or die.
Good Luck! Nancy:)

    Thank you, Nancy. I had a short bout with alcohol back in 1981 when my son died. I lweaned on booze to help me through, but luckily dropped it in time. Bless you, my friend. :) Bob

reply by nancy_e_davis on 29-Jan-2019
    That happens a lot but it doesn't help as you must have known. Bless you too Bob. :)

Thank you for entering the dribble flash fiction contest, Bob. This shows me how it's done. What I am taking from this perfect post is to keep matters simple and straightforward. Draw on emotions as much as possible. Offer a surprise ending.

You did surprise me. I thought that he was contemplating a jump out the window. But then that is mostly drawn from the photo. Another take--use artwork to add extra thoughts.

This is so well done. Drinking does take away all thoughts of stopping. You got the highest award that I can offer on Tuesday. I have been reviewing a great deal.

Right, the tomorrow that never comes for an alcie.

But they tend to be good at self-deception or maybe they truly think that they can be able to stop anytime they want.
