As we all know by now, Russell Brand and Katy Perry have filed for divorce. Although there’s many theories as to why, Slacker thinks it’s because Katy still really likes to drink and Russell is really proud of the fact that he doesn’t do that anymore. After all, he used to be a huge sex addict, drug addict, alcoholic… But here’s the question Slacker wants to know… Do you have to quit too if they stopped drinking alcohol?
Say Slacker’s wife was an alcoholic, he would feel bad coming into the housing, popping that bottle of wine and pouring that smooth glass. It could be a trigger for her…
If Steve stopped drinking or smoking, he wouldn’t expect everyone to change themselves to accommodate him.
I don’t think you should have to quit just because someone else is trying to quit. Like it has been said plenty of times, it’s their problem and not yours. You can be supportive, but it’s not something you should have to give up.
