A Drink!

Drop by drop,
Sip by sip,
It trickles down,
Deep down inside.
And the effect,
Is on the mind,
It is just a drink.
Burns the throat,
Momentarily though,
Yet produces a mood,
A soothing mood.
Where I feel light,
As if I were floating,
The world too joins,
Dances with me,
With perfect steps,
In good unison.
This is the nectar,
A sweet one,
For it cries along,
Laughs along.
And remembers all,
Forgets none.
Yes, it is just a drink!

If you absolutely must take the drink, remember that you are not required to drink it. If you've already resisted the drink, then the fact that you carry the drink around without sipping or quietly abandon it untouched should come as no surprise to your host.

Probably the biggest factor in misjudging the amount of alcohol in your home-poured servings is that of human error. If you enjoy the taste and effects of alcohol, and let's face it, most drinkers do, you will probably kid yourself that your "standard" drinks are less than they actually are. Furthermore, you aspire to being a generous host, you don't want to waste good wine, so you finish the bottle, and you may consider restaurant, bar or pub servings to be stingy -- some people feel a standard drink is little more than a dirty glass.

The bottom line is that if you care about your health, if you wish to maintain your dignity, and if you genuinely do not want to be addicted to alcohol, you will limit your intake extremely carefully. The inability to stop drinking once you have started, and denial around the use alcohol are central characteristics of alcohol addiction. Controlling your drinking is something that you, and you alone, must take responsibility for.

A sense of one's own good health is always the priority but to do even a wrong must be done passionately I would say! So, here's a drink to 'passion'! :)
