You Deserve it!

Relax a while 
Take your foot of the gas
The situation you’re in
It’ll change, it’ll pass

Find a new way to focus on you
Mindfulness works, it’s true 
It’s not selfish 
You deserve it too
You really do!

Go for a walk in a park on a summer’s day
Have an ice cream along the way
Being outdoors in nature 
All this 
Could put you in the good mood you usually save for
When you drink that first glass or two 
But you know, that’s a false, chemical state 
The one I’m talking about is real and true 
It lasts much longer too

After a drink
When you’ve drained your glass 
and your mood starts to sink
You seek to replicate it’s effect
Searching for a feeling, a moment that’s perfect 
But it’s never worth it 

It doesn’t exist 
Certainly doesn’t last, makes you feel worse 
Better to resist the urge 
Start to research 
Better ways

That could give you a feeling of
Happier days 
And the huge plus is
You’ll genuinely start to feel ok
It won’t always be thunder and rain 
You can get back to being you again

If you’re “sober curious” …

If you are drinking too much too often and want to take a break…
