So you got drunk again?


So... I heard you got drunk again
I know you didn't mean to
But then you found the opening
You saw the excuse
You heard the 'rationale'

Or... Was it one of those times
You just looked on in horror
Wondering who possessed you
Watching in helpless dismay
As someone lifted that bottle to your lips

So... You got drunk again
You woke in agony
Head pounding, body shaking, nausea
Fear and loathing and shame....
'What have I done?'

Oh.... I know how it feels
I've been there so many times
The lonely, horrible failure
Wretched in my own skin
'How did this happen again?'

But... I have good news for you
Every one of us had a 'last binge'
And from every fall, we learned to climb
This Hell you're in will fade
And from Right Here, Right Now, you can heal

Ahhh... I have such good news for you
If you but choose - Right Now
Embrace the vision of a better You
Take one step and admit 'I'm done'
You can begin to soar

My friend, I have GREAT news for you
This can be the last, your addiction can be past
You never have to feel this way again
So say it aloud 'I surrender, please HELP'
And choose sobriety! I know you can.

Perfect timing. I'm suffering through my final hangover. I'm never going to have one again.

The Big Plan is firmly in place and I'm on my way back to a decent & productive life.
