Darth Vader Demonstrates What it’s Like to Live with an Alcoholic

by The Discovering Alcoholic on June 3, 2009

When I saw this clip it reminded me of the extreme selfishness of the alcoholic/addict and the hopeless position of family and loved ones. I’ve worked this scenario from both sides, as the alcoholic and later in life taking on the role of stressed family member; neither side has it good, but I think the light saber cuts deeper on the family side.

If you just quit or are still drinking, don’t laugh- you are Vader, only worse! Think step 8 and never, ever take your family for granted or dare throw up a shield of resentment.

It’s a funny clip though, and for those of us in the know we have to take our laughs where we can get them. Enjoy.
