I guess I am not much of a one day at a time person. I got really turned off by people telling me that if I didn't drink today I could have all I want to drink tomorrow. They never listened to me that I had planned to stop only for a week, two weeks, once six months and then resumed drinking and did exactly that.
When it comes to only trying to deal with what is immediately on the plate in front of you it makes a lot of sense. I tend to worry about tomorrow way too much. Oddly enough when a real serious situation arises I can do very well in focusing only on the immediate problem at hand. I was critically injured in a very serious accident and remained totally calm throughout the whole ordeal. But that bill that has to be paid tomorrow can literally kill me today!
Oh well, at least I am sober!!
