[Blind Gossip] Poppy the Singer is really trying to live a clean life.
But, as anyone who has ever been through a 12-step program knows, you need to surround yourself with sober people in order to stay sober.
Well, Poppy’s boyfriend, Slimy the Actor, is definitely not sober. Neither is Slimy’s best friend, Lucky. They party constantly with dr*gs and alcohol. Lucky and his girlfriend Junkie are also serious her*in add*cts. Would anyone recommend that Poppy date or hang out with these kinds of people? Anyone?
Hanging around with them is obviously not a smart move for Poppy. This leads us to the third reason that Slimy is The Worst Boyfriend: Every time that Poppy gets clean, Slimy is the one who reintroduces her to dr*gs and alcohol!
If you ask Slimy, though, it’s not his fault. If you can’t stand the heat, get out of his kitchen! He isn’t the one forcing her to drink or do dr*gs. It’s just that his life is one long party, and if she isn’t down to party with him, he will find someone who is.
So here’s what happens: Poppy gets committed to her sobriety. Slimy goes off to party without her. When he does this, he punishes her by ignoring her for days at a time. She gets anxious and nervous about losing him. He tells her that if she wants to be with him then she has to join him. She eventually caves in and joins him and relapses. He blames her for relapsing, telling her that she is weak and a loser. And every time he tells her that, she believes it a little bit more. It’s a sick and vicious cycle.
