"Some Advice for the Newly Sober" by Chet Woodruff

If you were recently using and now you are sober

I gave some advice that you should think over

There’s more to this life than all the using

I know at first it can be confusing

To think you can have goals in the life

Like having a career or finding a wife

This life is your now that your addictions aren’t in it

You can do anything you imagine; the sky’s the limit

You must never forget the emptiness addiction brings

The happy parts you remember will haunt your dreams

You need to be stronger than when you were using

Don’t fall victim to the substances you were abusing

If you want to be satisfied in your ripe old age

You have to leave your past behind and turn the page
