Pencil Drawing - The Addiction
Pencil drawing of a simple glass with wine? Or is more than that? I can prove to you that is more than just a simple glass of wine illustrated in this drawing. It's about a life, a problem, love and addiction. Yes! I must say. I got more freedom since i did this pencil drawing. This drawing is all about a time in my life i had and the problems, the despair and addiction of a young man... Me!
The Meaning Behind...
In a fast way, what's behind this pencil drawing is simple. The glass of wine represents the addiction i've been talking about, the alcohol addiction. The broken glass represents the waste of time, love and life, that this addiction was to me and to my family and the spilled wine represents the problems inherent to alcohol addiction. See? It's quite simple to figure it out, isn't? But what really relies behond this drawing? A True Life!
A Drawing, A Story...
I was 25 years old and my wife was pregnant. Our first child! But i wasn't happy at all... not for the kid, course, but due to my fulltime job. I was and still am, a designer of light signs and it was a lot of stress, all days, since morning until the end of the day. And i was going down inside. I wasn't capable to deal with that kind of work stress, all days, for about 5 years, and i started to drink. So i drank to forget.
And suddenly the snowball effect starts and i wasn't seeing any chance in going back. I started to miss at job, leaving it sooner, arriving late and my boss fired me. He got reasons for that, i understood. It was really hard times for me and my family. I'm glad i have my parents, which my mother in that time, phoned me to talk about my alcohol issue. And i remember she being very persuasive and tender and asking me: "Wouldn't you wish to get up and get treatment in a proper clinic?" I was astonished, but my heart spoke louder and i said YES, i wanted to get better and clean. Well, my father went right away to his doctor, so he could recommend a treatment clinic suitable for my problem.
Some days later, there i was in a place far from everyone i know. It was kind of a mansion, which we had to take care and folow straight internal rules. Those rules were for us, to get us to know each other. Me and others with same addiction. We were like a family, but a month in there would be taking ages to pass. The treatment was 1 month only, a mix of pills (medicine) and rules (selfcare). I cried a lot, missing my wife Elsa and my yet child to born Levi. When i was about to get free from the house and above all from my alcohol addiciton, Elsa starts to give birth at the Hospital. The doctors of my clinic let me go to her, to watch our child borning. It was really our moment. Our baby was beatiful. All problems seemed to be gone. Sure was a nice gift for my effort, Our effort as a couple to pass through life problems.
My wife has been for me all the time, suppoorting me, as he supports me now for sharing my hubs with the world. Hope you guyz understand what i've been through, but it made me stronger, now we are a happy couple with our second child to born!!! It's a princess. We haven't give her a name yet, cause she's ment to be born only next April 2012. Our first son is now almost 7 years old. Time does pass!
Cya all in other hub, other story... Cheers
