Giving up cigarettes took a few months and led me to:
drinking, mostly gin.
With the bottle I had several bad nights,
worse mornings to match.
Not remembering the things I had done was easy
dealing with the consequences of what I had said,
My addiction to you, by comparison, was gradual
small drops of water then a tidal wave.
These were all habits of mine,
ones I am now divesting myself of,
pushing back from all those shores.
I'll let someone else label them
Good or Bad.
