Death of a drinker~by rldubour



Death of a drinker

You hear this much to often, that so and so has passed away.

And they died from drinking it put them in their grave.

Some just think of drinking as a social thing to do.

You want to learn what it does? Take a look in any I.C.U.


Drinking starts out as a crutch, helps forget about their troubles.

They can’t see that every drink makes their troubles double.

The more they drink the more they want now it’s a disease.

And without help they can not stop, this they do not see.

Everyday they lose a little they don’t know what’s in store.

Their job, their home, their family and a whole lot more.


Without help they cannot stop and all will feel defeat.

Stopping is not an option, they passed their last retreat.

The liver fails to function, vital organs shutting down.

Lose of weight and turning yellow much to late to turn around.


A truly senseless way to die, no one deserves all this.

As they lie unconscious with a morphine drip.

To dull the pain that they must feel, this is their reward.

To die a self inflected death drinking was their sword.


So if you have a loved one that is heading down this path.

Try and be there for them, for alone they can’t come back.

You hear this much to often that so and so passed away.

And they died from drinking, it put them in their grave.



  1. Well, this certainly hit a home run in my personal life. My older brother died at the age of 41 EXACTLY as you described his journey to death. Alcohol took a hold of him and he wasn’t strong enough to break loose from it’s grip. Excellent Blog!

    • thank YOU very much, I too have seen the harm drinking can become, a nephew and two good friends, no matter how hard I tried to help the worse they got and finally death was their only way out. again thank YOU
