Examine the trade-off.

You get about 3 hours (at best) of a chemically-induced euphoria, followed by 24-48 hours of hellish hangover. Those were my weekend binges, anyway.

Sober weekends now are more of a steady-state: A little bored, so I clean a little or go for a nice bike ride, A little tired, I take a refreshing nap.

Notice the difference? I haven't squandered another weekend poisoning myself for those precious few hours of fleeting bliss. I've nourished by body and soul with what it needs. Your weekends can be that way, too.
