Title: Attempt at Rehab
Hello everyone…………this should be fun
While greeting the group
I gave a fake smile, followed by a wave
Honestly, I don’t know why I’m here
Oh wait…because the bottle holds me hostage, I’m alcohol’s slave
Don’t shed tears, pour beer on my grave
So the maggots who will eat my flesh
Can taste what led me here.
I’m compulsive and I intake an uncontrolled consumption
Liquor is the reason why I’m not fit to be a husband
This chemical dependency
Never leaves me feeling empty
When people try to befriend me
I ignore them until my bottle is consumed in its entirety
No one will hire me because the bottle admires me.
Inebriated, intoxicated, beyond wasted
Is how my days are spent.
Blotto, the headlines will read
“Ex role model had an unnerving addiction, it was his
Over the counter prescription and often slurred his diction
And made him sound like he had a speech impediment.”
Blame my social environment, stress, and my family history
Blame genetics, it’s in me
The blood of alcoholics runs thru my veins
I find it hard to maintain when problems and worry
Plague the brain.
A physical and mental strain,
We all need something to make us feel sane.
Why am I here anyway?
Rehab is for quitters,
I’m optimistic about what appears in my glass.
This is closure, my confession is over, I feel weird being sober
I at least need to be tipsy.
------What time does the bar open and who is coming with me?
Title: "I've seen your addiction affect your life in the following ways..."
Writer: Julie Harris
Naw, man, this ain't no intervention.
This addiction that you call an affliction, or even a sickness,
Has affected everyone around you.
I see it as a weakness,
That you let surround you.
You wake up with a bottle in your hand,
Now only a shadow of the man
You once were.
Knowing how to keep your "secret,"
Almost becomes a game,
You have no shame,
Taking a shot of peppermint schnapps,
As you're being stopped by the cops,
Hoping it masks the smell.
When will you begin to think
One more drink
Will make you lose it all?
How far do you have to fall?
Doesn't it cross your mind,
When your kids don't eat,
To admit that you're weak?
Blacking out every night,
You beat on your wife
Within an inch of her life,
Then turn to your daughter,
Now her face so swole, her eyes can't even water.
Wake up in the morning, askin what hit her,
Can't remember a thing, but just blame it on the liquor.
You can't even drink for fun anymore...
Without it, your body gets sore.
You start to shake, sweat,
Then you beg and plead for more.
It's your habit,
And you got the nerve to talk about the crack addict.
Like you're better, because you don't shoot, snort, or smoke.
You're not better, that's all just a joke.
Your body is deteriorating, but you can't stop.
That puddle of urine you're soaked in every morning,
That's just a warning.
The rest of your body will start to fail,
You're trapped in your own private jail,
Because even when you're dying, you can't quit,
Probably be buried with your bottle.
No, this isn't an interention,
I'm releasing some tension
Hoping you get the lesson
Before it's too late....
You've already sealed your fate.
Writer: Demetrice Prince
Thoughts flow rapidly through the mind.
Through all the chaos stupidity emerges as king.
Feelings of self-pity are all too common.
Look in the mirror.
What do you see?
A shadow of what was and can never again be.
I'm here for you.
Stare into my gaze.
Let me take away all the pain.
Let me take away the hurt.
Crumbling and decayed is your body,
Let me take away the hurt.
Take me in your hands.
Caress me with throbbing fingers.
Tell me I'm the only one,
That we'll never part.
I'm with you until the end.
Say you love me.
You can never leave me!
I'm just too good to you.
Hold me and feel the power!
Lift me up....
Drink ur worries away.
Let me take away all that ails you.
Let me take you to places you've never dreamt of going....

A drink to kill the pain
Numbness to the world
Hear me tell it I do it to live
It's a lie
A coward's way to commit suicide
Slow and steady like clockwork
One drink leads to another bottle
Shake it up, swirl it around
Drink it up, swallow it down
Keep drinkin' until I drowned
I don't know how to stop
I couldn't even if I tried
Ny fate has been sealed
Pierced with multiple colored and flavored bullets
Internally bleeding to death
Dying one shot at a time
