Sunday Scribblings - Quitting

QUITTING ... when the big five O candles were blown out, the ice melted, the the balloons burst, the drunks departed and the hangover subsided, quitting began ...

Drunks
Bums
Losers
Booze
Partying
Jealousy
Drama
Temptation
Depression
Inherited attitudes
Learned behaviour


Over time the list grew ...
Cigarettes
Benzo's
Perfume
Wheat
Gluten
Dairy
Caffeine
Red meat
Excusing bad behaviour
Whingers
Back stabbers
Guilt
Liars
Cheats


Lately ...
Taking life and loved ones for granted
Crossing roads


When I get to the other side of the road there'll be more ...
