Proof that this is a one day at a time program.

Just got off the phone with my son earlier. He was very angry and told me not to talk to him because he was in a very bad mood. He had his cheque spent and it didn't arrive. He is so into Self, and I try to suggest that perhaps the job he wants so bad, just might not be good for him and he isn't meant to get it but to wait on one that would be better suited. All he can think of is the $16. an hour he will get to start. No thought that some of the work will be out of time and how often he missed work when it was in town.

He helps me out and yet he does it for the most part because he is bored and nothing to do because he is out of work. He also says, "Well I did this and that and it should be good for coffee money or a six pack of beer and maybe a carton of cigarettes.

Because he didn't get his cheque, so instead of putting a deposit which I gave him on shoes for work, he is spending it on drugs and alcohol. It seems like I will never learn. His cheque should be there tomorrow, so I will see how much of the money I will get back, if any. I know it is his disease. That didn't stop me from hurting and asking myself, "Why were you such a sucker and fell for another one of his stories?"
