Alcohol-Free? You Better Believe It- BOOM! Rethink the Drink

Alcohol-Free? You Better Believe It – poem by Floss

Half the battle is believing it can be done 
Believing in the power of one
To change the world even if just for one person 
Be that a loved one or yourself 
You can do it

Don’t tell yourself negative bullshit,
Designed to keep you down and “safe” from danger,
To success you’ll be a stranger 

You want to succeed in trying times, 
So you, your family and friends are fine,
So when put to the test,
Show up as your AF best

You never know when someone might need it,
So it’s important that you heed it
This is a warning and important advice you’re getting,
So try and stop fretting
Be AF and present each day,
You’d better believe you’ll find a way

You know in your heart of hearts you can do it,
So why not prove it,
To yourself and others 

Show up and demonstrate your intent,
You’re strong enough by far and if you need to vent,
Or need encouraging advice pop onto here,
There’s nothing to fear

You won’t be judged, 
You might get a gentle nudge 
In the right direction 

And whilst no-one expects perfection, 
No one suffered
from the compassion of others
and a little positive redirection
