Pick a sickness
In the rooms the other night, someone mentioned she considered herself lucky to be an alcoholic.
If I had to have a disease, I’d choose alcoholism.
i get this.
Alcoholism is a terminal disease. Left untreated, alcoholism causes death. Alcoholism: there is no cure but there is a treatment.
Alcoholism is a rare disease in that the remedy not only lets you maintain your lifestyle, but actually improves it.
If i had my ‘druthers i wouldn’t be a drunkard but if i have to pick a sickness, i’ll be an alcoholic.
Seether – Remedy
Clip the wings that get you high, just leave them where they lie
And tell yourself, “You’ll be the death of me”
