mad madame mim Sober
There's a shadow just behind me,
shrouding every breath I take,
making every promise empty,
pointing every finger at me.
Waiting like a stalking butler
who upon the finger rests.
Murder now the path called "must we"
just before the son has come.
Jesus, won't you fucking whistle
something but the past and done?
Why can't we not be sober?
I just want to start this over.
Why can't we drink forever.
I just want to start things over.
I am just a worthless liar.
I am just an imbecile.
I will only complicate you.
Trust in me and fall as well.
I will find a center in you.
I will chew it up and leave,
I will work to elevate you
just enough to bring you down.

Trust me.

turmoil Sober? let me count the way of the way to be sober. After to much delirium, after too many over sized rabbits chasing you, and pea sized giants. Theres a time when where you ll wish your sober and stay that way for good. 000823

guitar_freak Why would I want to be sober? Why am I now sober? Let me tell you all a little story. Very true and it is the answer to both questions.

Once, this last summer I decided to go to a very small party. Four people in fact. We went to a man's house who was very drunk already. He supplied my friend and I with lots of rum. Well, I drank a liter of it. By the time I was done drinking all of that I couldn't walk. The effects of alcohol start to take place after awhile. So as time passed I got drunker than I ever imagined was possible. Most of the night was a blur. I do have stories from the people who witnessed it and those make up mine. We were driving on a country, gravel road at 100mph. The lights were off and it was nighttime. The driver had a beer in one had and a cigarette in the other. I was in the back seat doing nothing but laughing, as drunk people do. By the hands of god himself we didn't get into a car accident. We made it to the house we were crashing at safely. I couldn't walk so I was carried by two people. I proceeded to pass out on the floor. The two guys who were there left me there and went out somewhere. The girl who was still there and drunk (not nearly as bad as I) was watching me. While I was still passed out I started to throw up. I started choking and was still unconcious. She dragged me to the bathroom and helped me to throw up while I wasn't aware. Eventually I regained conciousness long ebough to throw up for a couple more hours. Then I passed out again. For the next three days I was throwing up. My friend had saved my life. I would be dead right now if not for her. My body still hasn't recovered and it has been almost 5 months. I can't be around alcohol without getting sick again. That is why I am sober. Alcohol almost took away the one thing I have control of. My life

nmb this is why I'm sober, now...true story:

Others around me died, rotting in their rooms till someone thought to call a cop. Weíd take the things we could use and leave the rest to the families, if they could be found. The yellow tape on the door didnít stop us, we needed a place to sleep, some warmth for the night, and their ghosts were already in us anyway

guitar_freak VITAL TO MY LIFE
startfires,
The difference might not be much to unalcoholics, but to those of us who can't stop drinking the difference is enormous. If I have one drink I'm as good as fucked. If I could get plastered every once in awhile, believe me I would. The truth is that if I drink once I am plastered all day every day for a very very long time until I can do NOTHING but drink. That is the difference to me.

sphinxradio as tempting as it is to drink ourselves into delusion,
sometimes it's easier not to leave reality.
that is, if you intend to return to it at all.
i guess it depends on what you want.

"Ancient Pagan" We are most sober when we abide least by society's hollow conceptions of what sobriety is...the yogi who medidates under the tree and spends three hours laughing at the commonplace is truly sober...the serious, adult business man saturated with common values and who seldom smiles is insane!

Who is sober? The one who merges the bliss and spontenaity of childhood with the wisdom and learning of adults. My friends, humans are tailor-designed for Paradise!

invisible believer i'm always elected as the sober one amoung my friends. sometimes annoyingly, alcohol holds no allure for me in the way it seems to for them. 040218
...
the_vigilantist i dont see the allure either. i tried it once, just to see what everyone was raving about...i got a little buzzed, but not full on drunk. i remember feeling damn good, and relaxed, and happy. but i thought too much of the subject, and realzied i had no reason to feel that way (seeing as nothing exciting was happening...i'm an adrenaline junky, happiness never comes without a thrill), and the feeling passed. so then i thought "what now hit on some girls? sounds good!" so i tried, but i couldnt think straight enough to do so properly. then i suddenly wanted to be sober. 050809

me given the history of alcoholism in my family, sober is the only choice i have. drinking is just too risky. 050809

valley_of_the_dholes sober of what... does it matter?
drink - no more, started getting violent
pot - yes please.
crystal - never done it but it just seems scary so no

so there's sober and there's sober

justsomeguy what if everyone was sober? maybe things would be just too crystal clear. we don't like things to be that clear and focused. its like looking at your own face in a mirror that shows too much detail. but i still wonder what it would be like if every mind thought clearly, unaffected by any drug or substance. what would happen to society if we saw ourselves with such blinding clarity? 070829

Asylum Bound I have forever been sober, is it because I'm afraid? 091227
...
Karma_Bound A little over a year since alcohol has passed my lips. No help, I've done it on my own. The nightmares of having black outs have finally gone away since my subconscious mind has realized it will never happen if I do not drink.

The thought of being so messed up now actually makes me physically ill. I can't even consider having a buzz. I am both fiercely proud to have come this far and so ashamed to have needed to.
