He’s a guy who knows exactly what he wants.

There’s no middle path when it comes to a good drink.

I’m the one who comes drunk to the party. But I never leave drunk. Why? Because I usually pass out midway. Yes, embarrassing. I doubt it’ll be any different today. Still at home, I’m four drinks down, the fifth almost done, the sixth is coming with me. My driver honks furiously. I […]

  1. This is so powerful, Terveen. I commented in-depth at the other site but wanted to say here how much I admire your writing. I sound like a fanboy, I know, but hey, you have a gift and I’m so glad you share it with is. This piece is gut-wrenching. I can only hope the fellow turned his life around at some point before it was too late. Well done as always. 🙂

    • Thanks so much, Mike, for always expressing your heart and mind. The broken pieces of people’s lives are what either make them stronger or completely destroy them. I think each one must learn their lessons and it’s never an easy process. Thanks for all the appreciation and awesome words of encouragement. Fortunate and blessed to know you. Keep writing those beautiful words. The world needs them. 🙂

  2. A difficult and sensitive subject, delicately handled, Terveen. This is one of those pieces you have to read a few times to feel the impact. Each read takes you deeper into the sadness.

    • Thanks so much, Davy. There are many layers to a person’s life. Each one cemented with fears, feelings, memories, experiences, and the will to succumb or overcome. Let’s hope that it’s never a one-way journey. 🙂

  3. Sometimes I wonder what a bartender feels about his or her job. I mean taking that job, one has to face drunkards every night or probably even every day. I actually work with somebody who’s a secret drunkard and one has to be careful since he is not really normal…

    • I guess every job has its ups and downs. Alcohol addiction can ruin people in ways that many can’t even imagine. And every job has its perks and not so attractive side. Thank you for expressing yourself freely. 🙂
