When we first met:
Me: Are you an alcoholic?
Him: No, alcoholics go to meetin's.

Him: When I meet the girl I'll settle down with, I'll quit drinking! QUACK!

I guess that wasn't me, 'cause he didn't miss a beer.

Him: I believe in karma; the way you treat people comes back to you.

Well, dude, you're going to be on the receiving end of some pretty mean, selfish, rude behavior then...

I pulled this thread up today because I woke up this morning needing QUACKERS.

Sometimes the old pain comes to visit me. Like an old orthopedic injury which has been sealed over, but, on a rainy day begins to ache again. The antidote for me is to read a few pages of QUACKERS.

I am hoping that everyone who reads this can add one QUACKER to the "quacker jar", so that the whole SR community can have an abundant supply of fresh QUACKERS---for when they feel the need. :rotfxko

"The current state of my thinking is that maybe I never emotionally bonded with you, same as with my parents."

"Hmmmm. Well, are you going to try to?"

"They're set in their ways." Parents just turned 70/71.

"I can either spend every night at meetings with a bunch of drunks, or I can do something to better myself," spoken just before 9 months of sobriety ended in relapse.

I love this thread

Last night he calls "Hey, I went to my head shrinker today"
Me: "oh?"
Him: "Yeah, he says you're crazy. Want me to make you an appointment?"
Part of me wanted to ask why his psychiatrist (that I'm 90% sure is fictional anyway) is diagnosing me, the other part said "That's interesting, hey I have to go now...". Stood there for a minute quacking out loud, gave myself the giggles and went on with my evening

Him: "I'm exhausted, I just need to lay down for awhile"
Me: "Oh? What have you been up to today?"
Him: "...nuthin."

A blast from the past...
Me: "You're drinking, aren't you"
Him: "No, I'm not"
Me: "Yeah, I saw you. You had it in your truck"
Him: "Go check my truck, there's nothing there"
Me: "That's because you moved it to your sock"
Him: "But that's an empty one"
Yeah, it is now *eyeroll*

My favorite is when he calls, obviously drunk and says "You've been drinking, haven't you?" Um, nunya beezwax, and I'm not the one with an addiction here.

2 weeks sober, my rear end. Sometimes I'd like to staple his bill shut!

When he came over to get more of his crap a couple of weeks ago...

Me: "Oh look your hands are shaking. Why are your hands shaking?"

Him: (he ignored me)

On the phone I asked him if he didn't have any addiction problems then why do his hands shake so badly all the time?

Him: " Because you gave me anxiety, I'm taking medication for it. It's all your fault."

Went over to pick up the dogos, and I looked under the couch to see if a nylabone had skittered in there (really, I stopped looking for bottles a long time ago) - he suddenly blocks my view as I'm crouched on the floor, but voila! There is a bottle.

"Oh, that must be an old one, there for a long time!" QUACK

Me: (thinks: that wasn't there 3 weeks ago when I moved out) "That's *your* problem, not mine! "

So much pathos.

A text message, sent from rehab, after I asked him to stop calling if he was going to be abusive: "I don't know where you get this abuse sh*t from. Might want to consider putting the down the bottle yourself, it's messing with your head."

Where'd I get the abuse sh*t from? How about he threw a glass patio table through our sliding glass door, or pushed me into the wardrobe and slammed the door on my hand, or played guitar until his fingers bled then ran around the house stark naked spraying blood on all the walls. HA! Yeah, I'm the one who needs to put the bottle down...

Oh, here's another good one. I'm chauffeuring him around after his 3rd DUI in as many months, he says with a beer in hand, "Let's stop by the lawyers to get my name put on the house title. Then the cops will have to drop those destruction of property charges..."

No. Way. Mister.

Yeah, that is a weird one. My XRABF loves watching "Cops" to laugh at all the shirtless drunks jumping over fences with dogs chasing them. Seriously, how can he watch that, laugh at the fools, and not be totally embarrassed for having done the exact same thing? Yikes...

I can't even watch that show anymore, because it makes me embarrassed for him!

Anyway, momentarily off-topic. On with the quacks!

From another thread:

"I told him that he was choosing the alcohol over me; he said he was choosing himself."

"I said that if he drove out of the driveway that he was choosing to end this relationship."

"He gathered up everything he had here and put it in the truck. Tried to tell me that 'we'd get together and talk about it in a couple of days.'"

He then "got in the truck and left."

Since he was kicked out a month ago, the current re-occuring quack by my AH (with only one month sobriety under his belt and MANY relapses in his past) here is:
"The hardest thing is that I can't PROVE to you how good I'm doing and how much I've changed b/c you won't let me come back home to show you".... calling the enabler!

Questions for him runnermeg94: How about some videos of your changed self? How about some affidavits from your sponsor, AA/NA members, and family members and friends who were pissed at your alcoholism? And how would you say you've changed as to me, since you haven't been with me anyway?

"I can't just buy two small vodka's (airplane size) that would be embrassing, I need to get at least six"

"I'm tired of you spending all my money on stuff" (He has quit two jobs this year, and that "stuff" is bills).

"Why are you so upset, that happened in the past-I haven't didn't do anything last night" Occured last weekend.

"You deserve to be hit every now and then"....and that is why he is gone for a 90 day residental treatment program. Not sure what will happen at the end of 90 days.

Yikes! You did not deserve being hit or treated that way.
