It is extremely difficult for us to get it in our gut -- accept it -- that there is nothing we can say or do that will stop someone from drinking. It's a process, it takes time to shift our focus from someone else to where it should have been all along, ourselves.

As Louise said to Thelma: "Thelma, you get what you settle for."
