The Only Way Out is Through

The Only Way Out is Through

When it’s all too hard 
Don’t pick up that bottle or
You might forget
what you’re fighting for 
Your efforts so far
could go to waste –
The Only Way out is Through

To really make a change 
You have to be present 
Don’t let booze lessen 
Your true abilities 
To face up to things
and cope admirably –
The Only Way out is Through

Who cares what they think? 
You know the truth here
Alcohol free
there’s no need to fear

Just keep on keeping on
do your best
You’re doing nothing wrong 
Forget the rest

You know your capability 
Where your focus should be
And though for some reason
it’s still a temptation,
to reach for booze 
Your precious feelings
you could lose – because
The Only Way Out is Through

When things look like
they’re going wrong 
Choose alcohol free and just carry on

The only way out is through 

Do it best as an AF you! 🥊🥊 

Day 155 alcohol-free 

Invest in you
You’re so worth it too! ❤ You will see if you Stick to Sober
