Staying sober on?

Post by kullboys » Mon Mar 18, 2019 7:06 am

Can I, for song lyrics, say: I can't stay sober on you?
(meaning: i am sort of addicted to you)
Or is 'on' not the correct word there?

I can't stay sober on you. :ok:
It's okay, but it means I get drunk on you, not I'm addicted to you—though that may happen also :twisted:
