You know, as problematic was alcohol for Roomie, she did have her moments of A+ for effort.
Here for instance, if I was in the same place as Roomie, back when I had my own wittle alcohol addiction, I would have absolutely just gone over to the kitchen and added rum to my drink, so as not to feel left behind.
For me, it was more of a group thing, if everyone was drinking alcohol then I would too, if however no one wanted any alcoholic drinks for some reason then I'd feel out of place drinking any myself. That doesn't mean I didn't have drinking problems though, don't think there's only one type of alcoholism! :D
Ah, but Lillian's getting sleepy, I see, so let's turn the tone down so we don't bother her.
