Even though this is my first day, it could be worse, if I'd have carried on drinking it might have been my last.

Even though I'm lonely without my husband in my life, I could still be drinking with him and arguing every night.

Even though my back and shoulders hurt, it could be worse, I could be using alcohol to ease the pain, which causes MORE pain and doesn't force me to solve the problem.

Even though my husband will be out getting drunk tonight and tomorrow night while I sit home with my three kids, it could be worse, I could be getting drunk right now also and then they'd have TWO hungover parents.

Even though my future is uncertain, it could be worse, I could still be drinking and having suicidal thoughts.

Instead, I'm sober, I count my blessings and am over-the-top grateful to be getting better & stronger every day.

Even though my girlfriend is very distant right now and very fed up with my "on and off attempts at sobriety," it could be worse: I could be getting upset about it and drinking. Instead I'm worrying about ME, staying sober, and researching some classes to get back into school.

Good thread btw, you start good chats.

Even though my sober future is uncertain and scary, it could be worse: my drunk future was very certain, and far more terrifying, shameful and disgusting.

Even though I can't sleep, it.could be worse.
I could be chugging cough syrup for its alcohol content to try and sleep. I did that in the past. Ugh.

Even though I don't want to drive 80 minutes to babysit my grandson, it could be worse...
I could have no car.
I could have no gas.
I could be driving drunk.
He could have a drunk Grandmom.
I could have no Grandson....

Even though my doggie baby has a broken toe nail (ouch!), it could be worse, I could not have noticed because I was drunk and/or passed out. Now I can be certain if she needs medical care in the middle of the night I can drive. That's the kind of doggie mom she deserves and thankfully, now has

Even though I can't sleep, it could be worse......
....I could be drinking cough medicine just for the alcohol so I could sleep....
...Or I could be passed out in my clothes somewhere waking up to room spins, vomiting or a migraine....
Thank God those days are over!

Even though I lost everything I ever owned, It could be worse I could be spending all my days maintaining the stuff I once had.

What about you?
