Appreciation Message for Girlfriend a short Story: Recently, I have been struggling with going out and being with people with alcohol. I started drinking for myself back when my life started to spiral out of control. I made two near suicidal attempts in the fall of 2013. To be honest, it took me almost a year to start going out again. During this time, my whole relationship with my girlfriend was changed for the worse.
For example, my girlfriend had always been an avid casual drinker. She would have two or three glasses of wine when she went out with friends or family, and she never talked about it to anyone. I didn’t want that side of my girlfriend to come out. It wasn’t that she was a passive alcoholic, but she was avoiding people who were more responsible drinkers. She also started drinking with me when I first started going out again.
One night after we stopped drinking with her, I didn’t have a very good night. I ate cilantro and salsa instead of being mad and complaining, and I just wanted to sleep.
Later in the night, I sat by myself at the piano playing, and a thought crossed my mind — for me to have a dream about death. It was both sort of a joke and terrifying — I couldn’t sleep. I continued with the song, and I spent a few minutes thinking about being drunk and setting myself up for death. It was just a thought, and I couldn’t sleep.
I went into my room to text her and get help for what was brewing. I couldn’t go to the doctors anymore. If I couldn’t get help, I would have been sent to an ER for an evaluation. I never did go.

Looking back, I wish I would have waited. I can’t change the decisions I made back then, but I do wish I would have waited to be diagnosed with depression. I am still diagnosed with depression and have a constant yearning to be sober.
I have met so many sober friends, but it has been really hard. Yes, I’m grateful to have friends who make the decision not to drink, but it has been hard on me that they have continued to even visit me in my room. I’m not staying at home alone all the time, and it’s not for the reason that I don’t get drunk anymore. I can get drunk in my room now.
The primary reason for my decision to be sober is that I am a single man. I am blessed in the sense that I am still single even though I live with a lifelong sober woman. So, I was very lucky to be in a relationship with someone who is not, and was also very lucky in the sense that she kept a bottle of tequila in the fridge just in case I needed it.
She would help me find it on my own, and also pick up some food and water — she helped with every single part of my recovery. She wasn’t even the one who found the bottle of tequila.
For a few months in 2015, I started coming home drunk early on the weekends, and in those mornings, she would get mad. “What happened when I get home drunk?” I would ask. She would then tell me the answer, and as any woman would, she would complain. “She’s a good and kind girl.” She just wanted to be around me drunk, and she doesn’t need someone who drinks.
I was so surprised that she would be mad. I had been in that kind of a relationship before, where my drinking kept him awake through the night. Not to be insensitive to my girlfriend’s feelings, but I was concerned for her. I had a difficult time telling her that I wasn’t going out drinking on weekends. She just brushed it off as “artificial light,” and told me that alcohol is for older men.
If she felt this way, she could have stayed home. She only responded by saying how much she liked having me drunk. She didn’t even realize how much hurt she was doing herself.
So, in conclusion, there are several reasons why my girlfriend stayed with me even after I told her the truth about my drinking. I was not quite ready for her and her continued support of my addiction.
