If you are new to this terrible understanding of addiction, you may not be ready to see the humorous side.

For those of us who have been living with it for a while, we have to laugh as often as possible. Sometimes the situation is so absurd the only healthy response is to laugh.  Like when my son asked me to drive him to a job interview (yes).  Could we stop at Sarah’s on the way so he can smoke a few bowls first? (no & cue the laugh track)

When it all seems so ludicrous, allow yourself to laugh.  Not in ridicule and not in the presence of your loved one. But allow yourself to recognize the humor and be okay with it.

Your laughter loosens the pressure valve just a little.
