"Alcohol's Disastrous Promise"

I found this poem on the activeboard website. It helps sum up some of the reasons why we co-dependents are CRAZY sometimes! Just wanted to share it with you.
**************************************** **********

"Alcohol's Disastrous Promise"

I have some promises I'll make to you
If you will do what I want you to
The more that you consume of me
The more then will your losses be
Here are the promises to you I make
And I promise, the promises to never break

I promise to take your money, your home
And all you can get in the way of a loan
I'll take your character, your reputation, too
Your good name I'll take from you

Your friends I'll take from you one day
Your family from you I'll turn away
I'll take your car, I'll take your wealth
I'll take your job, I'll take your health

I'll take your watch, I'll take your chain
I'll cause you to stay out in the rain
I'll take your credit, I'll take your bail
I'll cause you to sleep in a dirty jail

I'll cause you regret, remorse, and pain
I'll cause your name to go down in shame.
I'll bring you misery, I'll bring you woe
I'll bring you trouble more than you know

I'll take your clothes and pawn them too
The necessities of life, I'll take from you
I'll take from you days, I'll take from you years
I'll double the flow of your bitter tears

I'll take your heart, give you one of stone
I'll cause you to walk through life alone
I'll take away your desire to live aright
Your light of day, I'll turn to night

I'll cause you to dishonor your mother and dad
I'll take all the pleasure you could have had
I'll turn your love for your friends to hate
Your desire to repent will come too late

Your road to despair for you I will pave
I'll cause you to fill a premature grave
I'll put you in an institution for the insane
Your normal thinking I'll not let you gain

I'll cause you to murder your best friend
I'll trouble your mind to the very end
I'll bring you contention, I'll bring you strife
I'll finish you by taking your life
