An Ode to Being Sober

Dear Readers,

I wrote this little poem, way early in my recovery. Sharing again!

An Ode To Being Sober

Being sober is really great,
No more hangovers
Or tummy aches.

Money saved not buying booze,
Can be used
For high-heeled shoes!

It’s sometimes easy, sometimes hard,
But it’s always better,
Than crashing a car!

Learning how to deal with a crazy life,
Can be kind-of funny, 
Even with strife.

Saturday dancing is a lot more fun,
Not being drunk,
And falling on your bum.

Then there is my own, proud hubby,
Who showers me each day with lots of

But in the end, being sober means you,
Can cry or be funny, and whichever you choose,
You know that it’s real and not the booze.

With A Kiss and Coffee From Mr. UT,

On Day 2326,
