Yeah, I gotta start that diet too... as soon as I finish off this ice cream

What a pain. My sister's computer is getting senile so she's had to borrow mine. Not really a big deal except she and the 'rents don't know about my little field trip through the hell that is drug addiction. So... every time I leave my computer I have to clear the browsing history so she doesn't trip over SR. And since I'm here, like, all the time it's about the first thing that comes up when you start typing in the address bar.
I know, I know. If only all my problems were so complicated.

I've considered telling them, and come to the conclusion that it's not a good idea. Any time my parents hear drug/alcohol stories on the TV or whatever, they make an immediate negative comment about the user. Geez... I mean, if they only knew, right? But then the comments would be directed at me instead and I can't handle it. At least not yet. Maybe one day when it's behind me and I'm more comfortable in my sobriety I will tell them. And if that never happens... ok.

I've always felt that way too, and now I'm beginning to think it will never happen (I'm much older than you !)
Except for the fact that I hate having to hide things, I'm fine with that

Parents NEED to understand that drug use is much different than it was when they confronted (if they even did) it in their youth. They're adults, they can handle it, especially when the child in question is pursuing recovery. With that said, you're not my brother, and I you've told us how weird your parents are.

Well, my parents are Quakers. Liberal ones. I was raised Quaker (how often do you hear that?), and the people I grew up around were all pretty hippie-ish. You'd think my parents could handle it. And I think my parents mean well, they just have zero experience with it. They don't even drink, really, let alone do harder drugs. My mom has had the same bottle of wine, corked, since I was about 12. Someone gave it to her. Dad buys a 6-pack of Bud in April when he mows the lawn for the first time, and buys a second one sometime in June, when he finally finishes it off. I can't imagine having beer sitting around the house for more than a night, and even at that it's a 30 pack. I think my parents and I come from different worlds.

Ah, Whittier. Whittier College is a Quaker school; I thought about going there. Glad I didn't though. I don't think L.A. is my style... no large city is.

Yeah LA really isn't my style, I hate the smog, traffic, crime, etc. The only benefit to living here, imo, is the weather. I tend to like small big cities, if that makes any sense; spent 6 years in San Francisco and 2 in Barcelona.

Gneiss, y'all make excellent oatmeal. I'm a grits man but when I do eat oatmeal it's Quaker Brand.

Mmmm, grits.

I like oatmeal, too, but it's very different from grits.
