Who am I?

My name is Lily. My boyfriend is alcoholic. His name is Max.

I am not trying to paint a bad picture of my life. I love my life, I love Max and Max loves me. Simple! What I am trying to do is give a glimpse, and get an answer to the question “Who am I?” (You should be familiar with that one, yourself).

Drinking is only a part of Max, and Max is only a part of me. It just happens that both have a lot of impact. What do I mean?

The impact:

1. Max does not turn up for work
2. Max not turn up at home
3. Lily does not eat or sleep
4. Max phones to say "meet me from the bus, I’m on my way" then is not there
5. Max has aggressive hangovers
6. Lily shouts when she doesn’t want to
7. Max feels hatred towards himself
8. Promises are made that can’t be kept, even though they’re meant

But this is not Max, and it’s certainly not Max everyday.

Max does not yet have a surname. He needs a name. Maybe this will help him. Maybe you can help him? Or do you need to know more?

Tell me, why does Max drink? what is he running from? What is he afraid of?

Tell me what makes Lily so self-sacrificing, so willing to be there for someone who is never there for her?

Tell me why they love each other, how they love each other?

Does Lily cry at night when Max doesn't show up? Where does Max go when he wants to get away?
