        Gnawing At the Comfort Zone

Gnawing At the Comfort Zone

after one abortive attempt to leave the nest, aileen (an ex heroin addict) is ready for another shot at independence. an old friend from the past, Lindsey, turns up and attempts to help aileen move into her new flat. But there are more obstacles to overcome than the simple packing of a suitcase. For one, there's Lydia, aileen's over protective mother, who's personality is succinctly summed up by her choice of leaving gift - a carbon monoxide detector. But more importantly, there's aileen's own innate self to surmount: she may have given up shooting herself in the arm, but she's still a crack shot when aiming at her foot! Some addicts are hooked well before they take their first fix, and sometimes long after their last.
