When I was a kid, I remember my folks "window shopping." They didn't have any money, but they liked to go look at the stuff they couldn't afford.

Hi Fluffy, I know a little about alcohol and family. I've written quite a bit about it in some of my posts on C-D over the time I've been on C-D.

My father was a violent alcoholic. My mother was an enabler and also drank. My two sisters turned to alcohol.

I've gone to many AA open meetings (that is where a non-alcoholic is allowed to sit in AA meetings). I have gone to many al-anon meetings over the years. I have done a lot of counseling, individual and group. There is so much to be learned. So much wisdom you will hear at these meetings.

And of course there are a few books to read that are full of helpful information.

There is a lot of information on Google and below is a site for "Recovery Village" that explains the connection between alcoholic and family.
https://www.therecoveryvillage.com/alcohol-abuse/
There are other sites listed, too, that will help you understand this.

You are an intelligent woman and I applaud you for questioning this. I hope this helps answer questions you may have.

There are so many of us. I don't have the need to drink as my family did. But I do enjoy a cold beer once in a while. I have wondered about myself as you seem to about yourself. It was explained to me that while my parents and sisters were alcoholic, I did not suffer from drinking. Only from the affects of others drinking. And sadly even tho I (many of us) aren't alcoholic, we do have the alcoholic way of thinking/behaving.

I feel like I'm mumbling here. I hope you are able to get some help from this.

Although this is off topic, I am leaving it in the hopes that it will help someone.

mschrief, I too am a disabled vet although I am not retired yet. Can you please tell me where you are looking to find the veterans discounts and more details as to the type of discounts you're getting. On another note, did your husband sign up for the prescription plan through Medicare? I'm not sure what to do. I am priority one which pays for all meds through the VA, but as you know you don't get an appointment right away for something like a cold, bronchitis or sinuses at the VA hospital.

Why rent, just test drive from your dealership for half an hour. Tell the sales guy you'll be right back. Exchange air filter, cabin filter (those things can be expensive, wipers, tires, and anything else that isn't permanently installed.







Joking of course. Or am I?

People like you are why I snag a new vehicle just as it's coming off the truck.
