Consciousness vs. Under the Influence

Just because I feel peacefully self-medicated,
Does NOT mean I’m consciously aware,

So I must be AWARE,
Of how I must practice,
To be,
MORE aware,

Although I only had one “Bud Light Seltzer” now,
I’d say now is an opportunity,
To express honestly,
That I’m coming to see,
That awareness,
While under (at least some) self-medicated influence,
Is just not as deep,
Not as clear,
Nor profound,

As being,
Consciously aware,

I would say this I MUST remember
