" I came close to losing grip totally,and realised I had to put aside the bottle for good."

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
