Alcoholic - creative writing.

Extracts from this document...


Alcoholic "A good morning to you all! This is Sara Cox on Radio One, it's 6:35 a.m., and here is Steps!" "What! Oh please no, please, not Steps! Not first thing on a Monday morning, that's all I need!" I jabbed out in frustration, desperately trying to stop my alarm clock from blasting out tacky pop music. As you can tell I'm not Step's biggest fan. I dragged myself out of bed, quite literally, and headed off to the bathroom where I jumped in the shower, as quickly as possible and turned up the water as hot as I could stand it. As I rubbed shampoo into my hair, I began to contemplate on how miserable life is. I seem to spend plenty of time thinking, more than is good for me anyway. I suppose I should introduce myself. My name is Jenny, Jenny Smith. I'm 16 years old, I have black hair (dyed!), blue eyes, I'm quite short, thin, not particularly attractive. If I filled out one of those dating agency forms I'd probably tick the box: average in the attractiveness section! Okay most of my friends would probably disagree, but hey, that's their opinion! I live in Manchester (and no, I don't support Manchester United!) ...read more.


They insist on running around the house and shouting at the top of their voices. They completely wreck the house, and I get the blame. "Jenny, you should have stopped them, are you stupid girl? What were you thinking letting them make such a mess?" It's the same every time, Jenny this, Jenny that, I'm just fed up! "Hi Mum, I'm home." "Oh, yeah hi." She slurred. "Mum have you been drinking?" If she'd been at it again I swear I would kill her. "Whaat...oh yeah jusss a bit." Oh god, what am I going to do? She's probably left Daniel on his own, and...That does it! "Mum!" I screamed. "Come here now!" "What have I done now?" "Nothing, you've done nothing! I'm fed up! You just sit on your behind and drink all day, look at you you're drunk! You disgust me. I don't know what's wrong with you, but you need some serious help. I'm only 16 and look at me; I'm more of a Mum than you are. Who looks after the kids? Me. Who cleans up after you? Me. I've had it up to here with you Mum. Until now I've been patient, but now, that's it! No more looking after kids, no more cleaning, I can't take it anymore, I don't need this. ...read more.


I tried to make out I was okay, going to hospital was the last thing I wanted to do. They'd start firing questions at me, they'd make me go back home. No way was I going back, not now. "Well if you're sure, but I don't think it's wise." "Thanks for your concern, but really I'm fine, just leave me alone, okay!" "Well I'm sorry! All I was trying to do was help you, but if you're going to be like that, then, well...Well that's your problem!" I sometimes wonder why people can't mind their own business, why couldn't she just leave me alone! Anyway, I'd better decide what I'm going to do. I don't know anyone that lives in Manchester, not even any relatives. I suppose I'll have to sleep rough tonight; maybe I can find a shelter or something. I need to sort out my Mum; I'm not going back there. Aren't there those alcoholics meetings you go to, what are they? The ones where you stand up in a circle and say my name's Fred and I'm an alcoholic. What are they called? Oh yeah, alcoholics anonymous. I could find out the number for the nearest one, and get Mum to go. If she refuses then that's simple, I won't come home. I'll give her an ultimatum: drink or me. If that doesn't work, well, well I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. Kirsten Turner 11S ...read more.
