Surf the Urge

When thoughts turn to cravings 
And you’re thinking of caving 
you have a life
worth saving 

You think it’s fine
I’ll just have one
Or two at the most 
Then the fcuk it switch goes
And your resolve is toast

Try and surf the urge
With curiosity, and distraction 
Cravings are annoying thoughts 
But they’re temporary, not compulsory 
And don’t require action 

Try not to let
Should I Shouldn’t I
thoughts click the fcuk it switch 

Don’t be tormented
by confusing thoughts which 
Could be like crashing
your car in a

It’s much steeper than it looked
And you know what it took 
To get out of that mess
Everything you had to address 

It’s true that re-balancing
can be challenging 
But it’s never not worth it

So remember,
when struggling, 
To surf it

The Wine Witch can keep her toxic elixir 
Sobriety for me now holds much less fear

What I’m seriously craving 
Is my life 
It’s worth saving
