The Lyrics

I'VE STOPPED DRINKING

I was drinking from an early age,
My friends were too as it was all the rage.
And I would drink in our bar the whole night through,
But then staggering back to home I found was hard to do.

I soon found that I was getting worse,
The whole of my life was going in reverse.
The doc said if I didn't stop then I would die.
So if you want to know what I decided, I just had to try...

And now you see I've stopped drinking any type of alcohol.
Though at first it wasn't easy, now I'm really on a roll.
I've stopped drinking and I'm feeling good,
People said I wouldn't keep it going but I knew I could.

I've stopped drinking (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I've stopped drinking (yeah, yeah, yeah)

My old man was nearly always drunk,
I couldn't blame Mother when she did a bunk.
Then left on my own I found the bottle too,
It was there that I found some refuge, but then the habit grew.

But now I've stopped drinking any type of alcohol,
Though at first it wasn't easy, now I'm really on a roll.
I've stopped drinking and I'm feeling good,
People said I wouldn't keep it going but I knew I would.

I've stopped drinking (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I've stopped drinking (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Don't you know I've stopped drinking any type of alcohol,
Though at first it wants easy, now I'm really on a roll.
I've stopped drinking and I'm feeling good,
People said I wouldn't keep it going but I knew I would.

I've stopped drinking (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I've stopped drinking (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I've stopped drinking (yeah, yeah, yeah)

I drank like most everybody else did as a teenager and young adult, But as I got older, alchohol started giving me increasingly severe hangovers, so I stopped completely. A couple people I knew in high school died prematurely from alchohol. One died of a heart attack after a night of heavy drinking. No way can anyone survive that, because you'll need a sensation of crushing chest pain to wake you up and by then its too late
