Stick to Sober – How on earth?

How on earth do you make it stick?
When of being sober you’re almost sick!
How do you make your new lifestyle fit?

Is this really it?
Never again?

How do you stick to sober?

But what if it rains?
If you do badly at work?
Or a competition
you don’t win?
I mean
What if the sky falls in?

Wouldn’t we be justified in drinking then?

Sick of being
on this merry go round!
I’m trying
But there’s problems that surround
Willing me to drink I think…

How on earth do you lose the desire
The hungry fire?

Tonight
It’s alcohol – free wine and sheer willpower
Minute by minute
Hour by hour….

I want to quash all the emptiness
Swap it for just feeling… less…

I’ll settle for watching a comedy
Just a blanket and me
Hope the movie will make me grin
And distract me from the mood I’m in
Shit it mentioned booze again!
Oh well I’ve set my stall out
No wine tonight
On with the fight
That’s how you stick to sober!
