"What doesn't kill you makes you stronger" -Friedrich Nietzsche

The bottle cries to him in the night; like in Alice in Wonderland this bottle has the same message attached: “Drink Me”. He drinks to ease his mind( of work, his past, his stress, his pain, his life). His wife and kids beg him to stop, but still he gulps another gone. His guard is down when he’s drinking. He lets his true colors flow. His temper increases. He lets his Mr. Hyde show.
After the hangovers are said and down. He feels disappointed in himself, knowing his addiction has won. He can’t let this happen, not ever again. He checks himself into treatment and swears this will end. He keeps his promise and remains strong and continues to strive. He lives on as Dr. Jerkyll and kills Mr. Hyde.

The author's comments:
My step-dad is a recovering alcoholic. I wrote this after he finished treatment to show him how proud I was of him. Some of my friends in a creative writing class I was in really liked it. I hope you do too.
