This was written by Russell Brand in regards to the passing of Amy Winehouse. This could have been written by any parent whose child has an addiction.
“…When you love someone who suffers from the disease of addiction you await the phone call. There will be a phone call. The sincere hope is that the call will be from the addict themselves, telling you they’ve had enough, that they’re ready to stop, ready to try something new. Of course though, you fear the other call, the sad nocturnal chime from a friend or relative telling you it’s too late, she’s gone.
Frustratingly it’s not a call you can ever make it must be received. It is impossible to intervene. …”
Popeye is slowly moving forward. He will not be able to return to work for two months. He has acknowledged his addiction and that is a good thing.
No more sad posts….next post will be pics of Swee’Pea I!!!!
