I recently discovered that Alcoholics are a lot like gamblers. I allowed what I thought was a friend to stay, for the weekend, by the time she had left there was fifty dollars missing from my handbag, I was so upset, I knew exactly how much was there as it was my daughters birthday money from relatives; not all of the money was taken but fifty dollars was missing. I knew this particular friend had a drinking problem, but I guess you don’t know someone until you live with them or in this case spend a weekend with them. I only told a few people initially as I felt silly that someone had gotten it over me, but have learnt my family and I are better off without friends involved in the drinking culture, I did have a bizarre feeling not to let her stay next time I will go with my gut instinct.
