    Today I sit here on recovery day number one,

    Unsure if recovery really can be done.

    I loved my slots you see

    But without me noticing they took over me.

    They had this frightening tight grasp

    But I decided today would be the last,

    I am taking my life back

    So slots you have got the sack!

    Whether it’s said
    In prose or verse
    Keep your money
    In your purse
    Day One Recovery,
    Very well done!
    Time to quit
    You’ve had your fun.
    You love the slots when on a roll
    But slots can take your life and soul
    Your peace of mind
    Your pride, your strength
    So kiss them goodbye,
    And write poems at length.

    ( ALL THE BEST IN RECOVERY, ONE DAY AT A TIME)

    Today I went back into the dark
    That dark place that captures me
    The same place that changes me.

    Who am I
    What have I become
    Why does this feel like home
    Like normality

    This time I click refresh
    And start again
    I try
    I try harder

    Now what do I do
    I move forward
    Not backward

    Now is the time to change
    Day one over again
    I can do this
    Will I do this
    This time I can!

    Day 5 feeling rough
    Reading your poems
    Helps me stop
