Today I..............(audience participation required)
This is supposed to be an inspirational thread that list things SR members have done today that they perhaps wouldn't have, had they been drinking.

You can use a bit of discretion for something you did today or earlier in the week if you can't think. & it really doesn't have to be anything world changing. small things we take for granted are just as important.

Today I.....had time in the evening to water all my terrace plants & plant 50 tulip bulbs for spring. :tyou

Today I......said "no" to a drink my other half offered me. He did this last time I stopped drinking and it took him a week or so to catch on that I'll keep saying no!

Got up at 5.45 for a 7.30am AA meeting. 5.45!!!

Walked along the Thames from work to Waterloo at 8pm and enjoyed my first sober view of London's dusk / night-time skyline for a long long time.

Today - I walked both ways into work. Unheard of if I was lazy, hungover arse woulda cabbed, spending money I don't have.

Today I...

...assembled a running HO slot car, went thrift store shopping, found some plastic model enamel paint on the cheap. Doing that stuff is a natural high for me now days.

Drunk and pilled today, I'd be all over the place getting nothing done and acting stupid.

Today I.... celebrated Day 10 with a green smoothie and a 10km run.

I'm enjoying the little things again.. Cooling temps, changing colors in the trees, organized pantry, read my bible...

I can do all things through he who strengthens me

Had cataract surgery. :) Now both eyes have a nice new artificial lens. I never would have bothered to make the appt had I been still drinking. :) I would have just put up with the decreasing vision. Complained about it, of course, but would have done nothing to fix it. :(

Today I bought a ticket for the local playhouse...Tom Sawyer. I would have never been interested, have money, or committed to that before.
