Precious Freedom

I never believed I could do this 
My brain would overthink 
The need to always know 
Who’d be providing my next drink 

How did others know how to behave?
When my mind would constantly crave 

The lies that alcohol fed
I realised were all in my head 
For sobriety actually brought 
An end to the battles I’d fought 

For twenty or more years 
That’s a lot of tears 
Not to mention the pain .

Now the cravings have gone 
And I’m carrying on 
As I owe this to myself 
My peace is my wealth 
No craving can take this 
My freedom is bliss ….
