Sample #1 A Woman in Distress What is one of the most devastating events that can happen to a family? Addiction of any kind can put stresses on husbands and wives for which they have little preparation. Alcohol more than any other addiction afflicts more American couples than addictions to other substances. In Michael Ronan’s short story, “Cassie and Charlie”, the reader sees the unfortunate results of an addiction to alcohol. Alcohol is a powerful problem, which catapults the wife, Cassie, into terrible trouble.
