I would rather say "I did it" than "I gave up".

I just need one more, she whispered to herself
Not giving one care about her long gone health
She took one more strong drink with one last pill
Hoping it might give her a more amazing thrill
Her thoughts start to finally begin to slow down
She drops to her knees and lays on the ground
Everything around her is starting to spin
And then she starts to feel something horrible on her skin
She scratches and screams while lying on the floor
She try’s so hard to crawl to the door
She can’t catch a grip of what’s going on
Her mind 6 months ago was already long gone
She had no idea that it’d be her last night
She tried so hard to win the addictions fight
But she didn’t know that one last pop and pour,
Meant that her life would end up to be never more.

The author's comments:
Addictions are hard to overcome, but you never know when it may take your life. So if your struggling in this fight... Just remember that " just one last time" may end up meaning It's your one last night.
