Taste Buds in Bloom! Alcohol-Free
Ok confession time
I got so fed up I tried a drink
But, I think
That glass of wine last night
Though £8 a bottle
It just tasted crap
Too vinegary and sour
I swear I could taste the chemicals
It was a rubbish “happy hour”
I think hopefully
I’ve nearly lost my desire to drink
I think, as long as I don’t try too hard to get it back
That could almost be that
There’s still my favourite wine of course
The one I miss the most
Wine no longer pulls me along
Unguarded, undecided, wanting
I think that’s a bit of a win!
I’ve tasted sobriety
Dipped my foot in
Now time to try it for real
If not now when?
Time to jump in
Stop sabotaging my efforts with too much cake
It’s so stupid but when I feel fat
I don’t want to feel like that
So I run back to wine
It’s a mistake though
But I’m also experimenting too
Wine, do I really want you?
I don’t quite honestly
It’s just what’s usually done
It’s ingrained in me
Time to change the potential end of my story
To one that’s genuinely me
There’s too many warnings out there to ignore
At the risk of repeating myself
And becoming a bore
I just can’t ignore it all anymore
I’m becoming a person too scared to drink
But you know what
That could save me so
It’s a bloody good thing!
Btw I only had a few sips
I just didn’t really like it
When our tolerance goes for booze
Do our taste-buds begin to bloom
Were they just suppressed before?
‘Cos I can’t really stomach the taste anymore
If you are drinking too much too often and want to stop or take a break…
Ask Yourself these questions ( you’ll find our answers inside BOOM at the linked titles)
If you can think of one thing that scares you, or scared you most about sobriety what would it be ?
What does Courage mean to you? Does it take courage to stop drinking? Why?
and we’re there to help with answers to these as well
What advice would you give our Newbies about those first 30 or 40 days? What do you remember about the early sticking points ?
Early sobriety is so so difficult I am having a very difficult time maintaining motivation. I am one of those who “never reached rock bottom.”?
What made you *realize* that you had “crossed the line” and had a very serious alcohol problem?
Do you really PROMISE it’s better on the other side? Swear?
