My sister is dating an alcoholic

My partner (he/him pronouns) and I (she/her) have been together for 7 years and are getting married this summer.

She shrank and moaned: "Sorry, I'm so sorry."But as quickly as her armour had fallen, she suddenly straightened herself and staggered forwards — to the airport doors.

I’m newly sober and I’ve been attending AA for the last two months.

One of my main meetings is a women’s meeting, which is rad, but I’ve tried to open it up a little bit–there’s a co-ed secular meeting and a co-ed meeting that does a physical outdoors excursion monthly.

For in addiction, the true self is suppressed or eclipsed and the false self -the addicted self- installed in its place as a kind of Vichy regime to execute the imperatives of its lord and master, addiction.
