It’s Simple


Simple moments
Simple pleasures
What is your happy?
What do you treasure?

For me it’s a lie in
Or waking up slowly
A cup of tea made for me

Crisp winter weather
My children’s morning cuddles
Snuggled under the covers

It’s a chatty phone call
from my lovely mother

It’s a work meeting cancelled
on a too busy day

It’s feeling nervous
but doing it anyway

It’s remembering to care
And when my children both share

It’s a parking space
when I’ve minutes to spare

It’s chocolate
Galaxy preferably
Warm blankets, popcorn and a movie

It’s my cats playing together
and jumping around fast

It’s NOT the contents of my glass!

My happiness is still within me
it’s true
And alcohol free
it comes more into view

If you are drinking too much too often and want to stop or take a break…

Talk to Us. 

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 be alcohol free? 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?
