Reasons to stay sober

Hey... I was just having a little conversation with my AV, listing all the reasons I could think of to NOT crack open that ice cool beer on this beautiful day, and, as you can imagine, I came up with quite a few.

Then I thought of maybe starting a thread in which everyone could contribute their best reason for not having that drink today in ONE sentence.

All contributions welcome!

I dont want that drink as I want to be with my partner today and remember everything about his face, what we did and our time together.

Because I like being sober and being drunk was awfully depressing.

Because I take such good care of my dogs and cats when I'm sober.

Because I do not want to put my daughter through watching her mother stumbling around making a fool of herself.

Because my job is my livelihood, and going to work in the morning still drunk is a good way to lose one's job. Honestly, I cringe when I think about mornings after a particularly bad binge.

I hate that sinking feeling of trying to remember what I did or said the night before

So my heart rate doesn't increase to the point it feels like my heart is going to pop out of my chest.

Because alcohol always seemed to cause misery, parting ways was the best decision ever!!

Because alcohol made me not enjoy being alive and I'm beginning to love life again now.

So that I don't screw up everything I've worked so hard on for the past few years, so I won't feel like crap tomorrow or worse...continue drinking and have it turn into a week long binge...the list could go on and on.
