        Another shake, another roll

        Who will win the Super Bowl?


        Another race, another spin

        Taking losses on the chin


        Another table, another card

        Falling soft, falling hard


        Another lie, another loan

        Life is really not your own


        Another coin, another slot

        Giving them, all you’ve got


        Another course, another horse

        More lies, more loans and of course


        It goes on and on, on and on

        Till all money, pride and hope are gone


        What’s another bet? 

        Your current pain is nothing yet


        Another bet, carry on?

        Till home, friends, family all are gone?


        Just one way to stop the fall, stop the drop.

        Just one word, stop.

            The the fortitude we show in the face of adversity will carry us through

            We can quit. Or better yet we can CHANGE

              We can all change. Generally I’d say we need to quit first – can’t make many changes while still in action.
              Abstinence = quitting
              Recovery = quitting and then start working on making those changes.

                Speechless after reading this, very clever Charles. It was a pleasure reading this over and over!
