The darkest night of his life started at his fridge, one lonely beer waiting for him, one he should never have.
In that moment of choice, one last moment of clarity he thought to call his Sponsor, but he had no more words left.
Tears, dried up, heart-broken, the loss and despair where too great to handle. All he wanted to do was to stop the feelings, better yet, to never feel again. And in order to complete that mission, he knew alcohol was his best ally.

This post was inspired by the Daily Prompt, which asked us to write anything, as long as it contained the words: dark, fridge, and tears.
I chose to write a Five Sentence Flash Fiction, as this is the type of Flash Fiction, I am currently focused on.
Brokenness can be healed, but it is one’s choice. What a lovely read! Thank you for sharing.
Thank you, Matthew. Yes you are correct that it is a choice. Sometimes we have to hit rock bottom to see that we have a choice, sadly. Blessings to you!

Alcohol won’t hold his answers, but he needs to learn that for himself. A very touching read 🙂

He was supposed to drink cognac. It’s much healthier!
Lol. Good one 🙂
Great flash fiction! Lovin it!
thanks, glad you enjoyed it!
Wow great post. The ironic part is this doesn’t just apply to alcohol as well so in a way everyone can relate to this. When you get the chance check out my post its pretty interesting.
indeed not just alcohol. Many of us have our own addictions to drown our sorrow, and stop the pain. Blessings!
Thanks for the blessing and have a good night.
