Happy Coffee Cups- Chose Sober

Life is Sweeter Sober

No comments

Life is sweeter sober
No hangover
No general malaise
Feel motivated not lazy
Ready to put power into my days
‘Cos I want them to be impactful
Rather than just fade

Feels like I’m at a party
Where AF punch is being made
Like a little kid in a sweet shop
Where lots of sober treats are laid

I might want the lot!

And food tastes much better too
My tastebuds are happier sober
What about you?

My gift to myself today
Is a crazy, contented sober birthday
I’m beginning to see it’s all true what they say

Life is just sweeter with booze out of the way
It doesn’t have to be extraordinary
Just a beautiful new normality
I didn’t see it before but I’m seeing it now
Life just has more colour somehow

Wonder what your sober joy’s would be?

Here’s some of mine:

• Clean teeth, fresh breath
• Enough quality sleep
• Always ready for a hug
• More motivated at work
• Remember conversations and they are more meaningful
• When I flirt with my husband I won’t be a drunken mess
• Did I mention food tastes better ?!
• Feeling calmer and capable
• I can find a map out of the overwhelm maze not get stuck there
• More organised which makes me feel calmer
• No FOMO, atm anyway, not one bit
• I can give away a bottle of wine and not have anymore in the house and feel relieved and smile
• Feeling like a weight has been lifted
• Just fcuking happier!

PS. Not stamping my feet anymore but punching the air! 👊😃❤🤷♀️🥰🌤🙃

Don’t let the shame of the stigma keep you from saying

“I think I have a problem with drinking”


I am There Now

I am there now
I want to be a happy non drinker
Not a frustrated, upset, wine time thinker

I woke up this morning with a clear head and
For me personally it’s time to take a stand
I’m kicking alcohol out of my life for good

With booze we always, always lose
It’s a mugs game
A cycle of brief relief then shame and pain
Then the cravings hit and it starts again

Chasing, chasing, forever chasing a feeling
Always just out of my grasp

I don’t want to live my life in chains
I want to be free
And learn to handle it when it rains
Just as Me

I want real fun, joy and laughter
And happy times I want to remember the day after

I know which bridge I want to burn now
And with Boom I’m still busy learning the how

It’s not such a scary decision to make
When you realise everything about alcohol is fake

And exactly what it could eventually take

When you wake up and realise you don’t want booze anymore
That’s a freeing feeling for sure!
