Anti liquor limericks


Since its beginning mid last century AA has provided us with many catchy sayings that have helped with the problems of drinking.
Poems and acronymns can be helpful too.

I'll be greedy and set the ball rolling with two.

'Stinking thinking leads to drinking'
(How many smarties have ended in the gutter)
'First drink, worst drink'
(When in Rehab, over 20 years ago, I heard an interesting twist on this.An old wag placed three glasses in a row and started consuming the second. Quite clearly he just didn't get the message.)
All contributions welcome-

Moderate drinking, like a partial anaesthetic, just doesn't work well~~~

I was really addicted to the hokey pokey, then I turned it around. That's what it's all about.

Also alcohol applicable-----

It's smart to sometimes get out of the rut, look at different posts, question all of your concepts and heros. In short be open and pro active to change~~

I did this. I underestimated it. NEVER thought my drinking would be a daily necessity/atrocity/shame show.

It entered my body through my own actions, one too many times. And I turned into a pickle.

Can’t ever turn back into a cuke . Ever.

Beware.
