Instead of Drinking


Instead of drinking I could have just said "No you're not gonna talk to me like that!"

Instead of drinking I could have just said "I'm not watching all your kids, it's me time."

Instead of drinking I should have just gone for a walk and felt the breeze.

Instead of drinking I could have played my music and danced because I can.

Instead of drinking I could have tried out a new hairstyle.

Instead of drinking I could have cooked a gourmet meal from Google.

Instead of drinking I could have called a non-drinker friend and hung out.

Good list for the next time! Dust yourself off and move forward. That's all any of us can do.
