Because I am sober, today I am free to take a nap.... (not pass out.)

Because I am sober, today I am free to be awake in the middle of the night, and not panic, and not gulp more vodka down to try and get back to sleep.

Awake without having to pry stuck eyelids apart.

Feel full of energy even after 10 hours of gardening yesterday.

Get excited about making lemonade at my mom's house and sipping it in her beautiful garden.

So happy to be sober in springtime!

Because I am sober, today I am free to help others, and not be as self absorbed...

Because I am sober today, I am free to catch up on work. It's definitely not fun, but it makes me a better employee.

This is a really good thread, and I can relate to many of the newly appreciated activities!

Today i am free to be in a bad mood, and deal with it without drinking, and not blame it on drinking... (This is not the fun side of recovery, but, it is what seperates the girls from the women and the men from the boys. Today I am free to be a grown up. At 49. Lol)

Today I am free to be at work without worrying about how long it is till my next drink... or sneaking it in at work... and wondering if today will be the day I get fired.

Today I am free to be the best me that I can be.

Today I am free to get all the things done that I have to get done on my usually chock-full Mondays (conference calls etc) -- and not start the week by falling behind.

Because i was sober today, i was free to go the ball game tonight, not drink beer, not secretly predrink before going to the game, and drive home (in the rain) after the game, without worry that i am drinking and driving.
