Need Some Tough Love ?

Barbed Heart Tough Love

I know you’re suffering depression
Because you just can’t seem to stop
But you asked for tough love
So …

Hit you hard?
Tell it like it is?
Ok let’s try
Let’s say
On alcohol you’re not ok
You wouldn’t be here if you were anyway

You say you can’t resist
You’re an addict
A mess
But plenty have been where you are
They struggled like hell
and recovered far

They haven’t given in completely to alcohol’s call
They got up each time they had cause to fall
You can do it too
But it’s up to you

The support is here
And posting regularly helps
It’s clear
Let it all out
There’s nothing to fear

Tough Love!
Your body can only take so much abuse
Then it will get to the point it’ll be of no use
Imagine sitting on a hospital bed
Full of dread
“We’re so sorry
Nothing can be done” the Drs said
You’ll probably die soon
Are you comfortable in your hospital room?

Tough Love !

Do you really want to end up that way?
When you could choose now to recover
and make it okay?

You know there’s lots to stick around for
You have the power to change things so please do it now
Before it could be changed for you
And how!

I’ll leave you with a final thought on this subject
I strongly suspect
That if you are still turning to the poisonous toxin
And drinking it quite regularly
You certainly ain’t thinking rationally

With more sobriety
Will come perspective you see
And hopefully
Less depression
And less anxiety
When you feel more free in this way
The alcohol addict voice will have less power over you
And less say
Ok? 💖
Tough Love
