Surf the Urge

It’s funny…

What I’m starting to learn 
Is that far from being lost
There’s much less cost
To sobriety 

Well that surprised me!

Not what I was expecting 
And it really does help, connecting
Accountability I think is key
Certainly it is for me

The bridge to alcohol 
I’m trying to burn 
And now when I yearn 
Feel desperate for a drink 
I’m beginning to think 
These cravings are strong
but what they advocate is fake

A different mindset
could be what it takes 
The feelings that
I need that glass 
They don’t actually last

Who knew?
Do you find that too?
They disappear 
Relatively fast

Sure they keep returning 
All too frequently 
And we have the familiar yearning 
But we have the advantage you see!
If we just keep on learning 
If we accept the feeling and sit with it
What we could find out is
we don’t need that sh!t
