Blew My Sobriety (poem)

Waking up this afternoon,

head pounding, hangover gloom.

I drank a fifth last night,

my liver’s losing the fight!


I pissed all over my bedroom rug,

it stinks in my room,

it’s not my fault,

I was totally blacked out!?


I am in need of some serious help,

I cannot stop drinking to save my life.

DRUGS, gimme drugs that make me reject the booze,

Antabuse, come into my life!


Why do I do this?

Keep drinking when it now has no good effect,

It’s just, drink, blackout, piss!



I am a young, attractive white male with gorgeous, thick, wavy long brown hair,

my life could have turned out so much better, but it’s now one of despair,

I have no money, no friends, no control over my addiction,

I am carrying on my alcoholic family’s tradition!


There are places I want to go,

girls I want to meet, (Tarlee, I’m talking to you, sexy lady)

apartments I wish to move into,

happiness I want fulfilled!!


My name is Goat, and I’m an alcoholic.

I am helpless against this demon inside me,

I need a ‘mind-wipe’ pill to take me back 5 years,

5 years ago I had never even been drunk before,

I was a nerdy teetotal student – the designated driver with all the cash!!


If I don’t stop, I will die,

simple as that,

I want to be sober forever now,

  1. This poem really conveys the prison of addiction/alcoholism it is very poignant. I never pissed in the bed when I was drinking but one night when I ended up at a stranger’s house as I was so drunk I did wee in my handbag as I couldn’t find the bathroom. The next morning I had a massive go at the guy for weeing in my bag as I completely forgot I was blacked out! Blackouts, collapsing in nightclubs, poisoning myself, sex with strangers thank God I’m 11 years clean this month! http://bit.ly/1ER5cLY

  2. Wellcome to the club, what I do is take it one day at a time.
    So today, i didn´t drink. Today, and that makes me feel good. Tomorrow….don´t know, but not today.

  4. You need Jason Vale’s How to kick the drink easily, in your life.
