I never believed I could do this
My brain would overthink
The need to always know
Who’d be providing my next drink
How did others know how to behave?
When my mind would constantly crave
The lies that alcohol fed
I realised were all in my head
For sobriety actually brought
An end to the battles I’d fought
For twenty or more years
That’s a lot of tears
Not to mention the pain .
Now the cravings have gone
And I’m carrying on
As I owe this to myself
My peace is my wealth
No craving can take this
My freedom is bliss ….
