I used to enjoy alcohol.
It made dull people interesting.
I found humour in everything
Then alcohol put its hands around my neck.
I could not live without it.
When I did try to live without alcohol
I would tremble and sweat.
I would convulse and end up in hospital.
Rehab was easy.
I wanted to be there at the time.
Rehab worked for eight months
Then it didn’t.
I was back to square one.
Gaunt, trembling, unkempt, unreliable.
There was no cure.
I did not drink alcohol today.
I do not intend to drink alcohol tomorrow.
I do not think about tomorrow.
