Sometimes life can be a struggle and it feels like there is no returning from the darkness

A point of no return

She tries to put the bottle down but it gravitates towards her lips. It’s been a long day and getting drunk is her only wish.

Nothing will happen, her beloved son is in his bed safe and sound.

Nothing will happen, her beloved son is in his bed safe and sound. She just needs this one drink to pick her self up off the ground.

The first drink is down her throat faster than it should be.

The first drink is down her throat faster than it should be. What’s one more, maybe two or three.

5 drinks in and she is starting to feel free.

5 drinks in and she is starting to feel free. Forgetting all about the boy in bed who is only three.

She wakes up, 3am sleeping on the table.

She wakes up, 3am sleeping on the table. This has to stop she is becoming unable.

Checking on the boy she sees him sound and sleeping.

Checking on the boy she sees him sound and sleeping. On her way back to her room she starts weeping.

What was wrong, why couldn’t she just quit.

What was wrong, why couldn’t she just quit. She pushed away the thought that she was an addict.

If only she had acknowledged the problem then, maybe she’d be fine.

If only she had acknowledged the problem then, maybe she’d be fine. Unfortunately, now a days, she is drinking things stronger than wine.

She turns off the lights about to go to bed.

She turns off the lights about to go to bed. But the nonempty bottles on the table are messing with her head.

She tries to put the bottle down but it gravitates to her lips.

She tries to put the bottle down but it gravitates to her lips. The pain is too much and some relief is her one wish.
