The Lady or Bottle
My father left me two vials to drink from. Both toxic and both designed to crush not only myself but those around me.
The first vial was labeled wife beater a deadly toxin that causes uncontrollable rage with a side effect of child abuse.
The second vial labeled as alcoholic the vial my father drank of before using the first vial as a chaser.
I wisely (or so I thought at the time) chose the second vial. I dove into bottles and left friends and family worried.
After a few years I found a third vial labeled rock bottom and have been sober ever since.
