This is excellent. I'm sure many have been there, done that. Your little story points out the destruction compulsions/addictions can be--basically--waiting for death. Good luck in the contest. Marilyn

    I have not entered a contest here in years. LOL. I got hung up on novel writing. I used to write some pretty decent poetry too. Bless you, Marilyn. Bob

reply by BeasPeas on 28-Jan-2019
    I think it's nice to write both poetry and prose, too.

reply by the author on 28-Jan-2019
    You do also, right? Bob

reply by BeasPeas on 28-Jan-2019
    Yes. I have always written since childhood--as most of us have, I think. Poetry and prose. I'm also an artist and now joined 2 singing groups. LOL--we'll see how that goes. Marilyn

    You are obviously staying busy. Good for you, Marilyn. Bob

These words from Clyde bring back memories for me no doubt. A smoker and drinker for many years I was always telling myself that I could quit when I wanted. The real quitting began when I became a born again Christian and really gave it all to God. Thanks for sharing, God bless always.

Well done in showing us the deceptive inner voice that alcoholics tend to believe. It is ominous that he starts with "welcoming death" which shows how easily he's gambling with is life.

A little variation on your theme for this Flash Fiction contest, eh? I am personally grateful, since I had a very full schedule yesterday and fell way behind! I admired the very introspective mood and imagine most alcoholics think they can stop anytime they want... Best wishes in the competition- Joan

Delusional is what he is... Great write for the competition and even though it is short,you have done a good job encapsulating an entire story in just a few lines. Very good.

It's so sad when someone actually believes they can give up anytime. But it's only themselves they are fooling. This is a powerful dribble fiction, my friend, and a brilliant contest entry. I wish you the very best of luck. :)) Sandra xx

Having come from alcoholism to the light of sobriety, I know what's it's like to not care whether one lived or died, but I can understand the "one for the road syndrome". A demon can be perceived as a "friend". But it's a mortal enemy. Talk about looking through a glass darkly. Well done Bob, good entry, good luck, blessings, Roy

Hi Bob this is a great Dribble flash for the contest. Yeah that's what all alcoholics say I suppose. 'I can stop anytime' And then they just carry on. Clyde has not acknowledged his problem just yet. All best. Ulla:)))

That's what all out of control alcoholics tell themselves and anyone dumb enough to listen to them. They say never argue with an idiot, people may not know the difference.

    Thanks, Thomas. But other than that what did you think of the play Mrs. Lincoln?
