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
then sudden,
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.
