I knew and I was certain that our economy would recover and as matter of fact it did and that’s why we are still in business on one of the industries where 90 percent of independent establishments closed within the first year. We had a rough first year but I like to say and give the credit to one of our most loyal customers since day one.
When Joe was about ten years old, the only life he really knew was drugs, sex, and stealing money.

At this point we get a more detailed background of Jenny’s life outside of college, including information about her parents. Oliver tries to make Jenny understand about his and his father’s relationship, but she does not get it.

So, because of alcohol and drugs, I never got to know one grandfather and I will never hear the voice of my other grandfather again. That is why I have such a problem with drugs. I can’t understand doing those things just to look cool or even why people like them.

Because I broke my glasses and couldn’t work for a week, I had to work overtime all weekend. Being so busy, I ate mostly preprepared or fast food, namely a frozen breakfast sandwich, a Subway sandwich, and a gyro from a local cafe. I actually considered having a breakfast sandwich for lunch on the second day but was worried that it would look like I wasn’t putting effort into my work, so I packed a quick lunch.

As Jean Kinney states in their book, “Loosening the Grip”, Kinney defines relapse the resumption of the drug or alcohol.
