HIGH-FUNCTIONING ALCOHOLIC

A misfit phrase…

High-functioning?

How?

If it is as an alcoholic,

Surely, If you are not getting smashed,

you are not fulfilling the brief!

If it is as a sober person

Surely you would be more able

To function at a high level without the drink…

So neither part of the phrase is being met…

Oxymoronic?

 

If you are drinking enough

to fight the craving,

Then you are using it as medication…

And let’s face it there are better drugs:

Available!
