Drabble: Harmful

Title: Harmful
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Owen.
Rating: PG
Written For: Challenge 534: Compulsion at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Owen knows he’s drinking to much, but he can’t stop.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

As a doctor, Owen’s well aware of the harm excessive drinking does to the human body. He keeps telling himself at least he doesn’t smoke; that smoking would be worse, but he knows that’s a copout. Getting drunk every night is as bad as being a heavy smoker, just in a different way. He’s going to do his liver in if he doesn’t stop.

So he tells himself he’ll quit, even though he knows he won’t, because his drinking isn’t merely a bad habit; it’s become a compulsion, a way of coping with losing Katie. Nothing else numbs the pain.

The End
