Dear Alcohol We’re Through A Poetic Homage to Sober
I love being sober because :
Without alcohol in my life
I am less stressed
I have a lot more energy
I am more patient with my kids
I am funnier
There’s a lot less drama in my life and in my head
My thoughts are finally positives
I am more productive
My head isn’t fuzzy for days from drinking
I’m more consistent
Even when driving to school in rubbish weather
I feel glad I’m clear headed and not hungover
I can be bothered
And the list goes on and on.
You give me very few things of benefit
A brief chilled out feeling
But it disappears all too quick
I run after it
Faster and Faster
But then it makes me feel sick
It becomes a disaster
There’s no point denying
that you’re the real master
You hurt me
I can’t get my balance
I always fall over
Why do I keep on wanting to go back?
I know sooner or later
That you’ll attack!
You’ll damage my body
You’ll damage my mind
I’m sure I’ll find
No peace anymore
It’s you I’m trying so hard to abhor!
And I’m going to keep on trying
Until I just don’t want you anymore
Your power is certainly very scary
But I’ll turn it to my advantage you see
And use it to strengthen my resolve really
Until the winner of our fight
Is me, hopefully x
Don’t cuddle yourself
In the chaos of wine
It’s grip will get tighter and tighter
Things I love about being sober :
Without alcohol in my life
I can drive anytime of the day 🏋🏼♂️
I can remember everything 🤸🏼♀️
I am calmer & less anxious 🦁
My conscience is clear ✨
I’m never nauseous 🤮
I’ve lost weight 🙌🏼
I sleep soooo well 🛌
Things I Love About Being Sober:
Without Alcohol in my Life
I am now in control of my mood and life
I love looking after my physical and emotional health
I love the sleep and not having to wonder
if I did anything stupid last night.
I don’t have regrets
I don’t feel disgusted with myself
And I’ve saved the environmental waste of thousands of bottles!
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 our BOOM community 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?
