So a strange thing happened today
I just wanted to say
When I went to the local store
I was testing my willpower
Like I’ve started to do more
I made myself look at the bottles of wine
All stacked neatly in a line
I looked a long time
But a weird thing happened
It caused me to frown
I felt ok
I mean just ok that’s true
But not full of envy
Is that the new me?
There wasn’t one bit of desire in me
To purchase the health thief
I felt happy with relief
There was nothing to persuade me to buy
To chase the lie
It actually made my stomach feel ill
At the thought of wine I felt a bit queasy
It’s still far from easy but
What’s happening now?
Are my tastes changing
My thoughts rearranging?
It is different to the power that comes from our will
It was that the alcohol voice could drone
On and on and on and on
And I wouldn’t want to buy any
No bottle at that time could lure me
And it kinda threw me
and this is stranger still
I craved sparkling water
And the thought of brain clogging wine
It just felt boring and old
Don’t get me wrong
if I chose to concentrate
To focus on the taste and
The cravings for wine surely returned
But I didn’t yearn
I think I’m learning to compartmentalise
Or I could just be getting wise
To the fact alcohol lies
Could feeling unsatisfied,
conned and shortchanged
Help us to want to rearrange
I mean, who wants to stay bullshitified?
Thanks for the inspiration MrsP x ( inspiration in post below)
If you are listening to the alcohol voice and drinking too much too often Rethink the Drink .
