Diary of an Addict: Almost 2 Months Sober, Succumbing to Temptation

Since before the start of Ramadan, I took one long, hard look at myself in the mirror and said, ‘its time for you to sober up, you lousy slob!”

Addiction is a terrible, terrible thing

And that I did, I kicked the filthy habit that would alter my state of mind cold turkey; put down the glass and haven’t looked back since. I gave up the juice in all its forms, detoxifying my blood and clearing my mind for the first time in a long time.

The withdrawal was terrible, the migraines unbearable. At times it felt as though my head would explode, however, I stood tall, and endured.

Ramadan came and went, and I was more alert than ever before. Now however, almost two months into my purification, I find myself unable to resist the temptation, the call of my addiction. I must succumb to its siren song, embrace its deathly bosom and accept the inevitable.

There is no point resisting temptation, we all fall off the wagon sooner or later.

 

Now is my turn, my time has come, it is time to jump off the wagon, and land face first in the dirt of addiction.

This is my ailment, my addiction..

 

Java. The Black Gold, The Juice. I smell the aroma of a fresh, hot, steaming cup of Turkish coffee, and all the memories of my previous addiction come flooding back.

The rush, the caffeine high, the dilated pupils, I crave it all now.

So true,, So true

There is no denying it, we are all addicts. The Coffee Bean stands above us all, the ruthless tormentor, the slave-runner, steaming cup of coffee in one hand, and a violent, blood-soaked whip in the other.

Straight from the Source

I am so weak.

Yet…

My self-imposed exile from the fizzy drinks, in all their glory and splendor, is entering its 9th consecutive month. Since the start of 2011, I put down the Pepsi bottle, threw away the Coca Cola, The Red Bull, The Mountain Due and all their constituents, and have not looked back since.

Maybe there is still hope. Maybe, I can overcome..
