Cravings the demands of the mind

Come quickly on the unwary;

Alcoholic pleas to unwind

So immediate so scary;

Never give in to such demands

For to do so leaves a small chink

A hole through which the need commands

You weaken and take a quick drink;

And then the hole becomes greater

And so does the need suddenly

Gripped by the shakes and the fever

Held within its grasp completely;

Call on God or who you hold dear

Dig down deep abandon the beer.

I can REALLY relate to this.  I haven't had a drink in maybe ten years -- something like that.  Yes I still crave -- and cigarettes too -- but it's as you say:  these poisons just make a bigger hole.  It's a struggle: life.  We'll survive.  Sober.   --David

Well I was attacked this day by White Castle cravings. I figure you don't know what White Castle is, so I'll tell you....It's a burger joint, small, square hamburgers and cheesburgers, called sliders, with onion, pickle and ketchup....yum! White Castle has been around for almost a hundred years or so, here in the colonies, too bad you can try some, they rock! As for your cravings....stay on the wagon, cowboy up and you'll be just fine.
