This was a super job. You could almost feel his thirst and the strength of his resolve. It feels so very real.

The character's pain, needs, desires and spiritual journey were well portrayed.

I'm surprised this one doesn't have more comments. Excellent job! Love the idea of an alcoholic struggling on New Year's Eve - one of the heaviest drinking nights of the year.
Great writing!
Blessings, Lynda

I love how he "falls into the arms of forgiveness." Perfect picture.

Excellent! Excellent entry. This is really a powerful story of perfect love and redemption.
Touching portrayal of a sober subject, Judy. Excellent writing, until "Behind him he spots his wife. . ." At that point you lose momentum, stepping outside the story to tell instead of show, as if gushing out the remainder before being stopped by the word count at the finish line. NONETHELESS, I love the story and your take on this topic -- Congratulations on your well-deserved inclusion in the anthology! -- Lois
