The good and the bad

So thought we could do a bit of sharing the good and the bad. I donít post a lot but do read a lot of them and they make me think about my past and present self.

name a good and a bad thing about your self or your life during your drinking time and during sobriety. Doesnít have to be too personal. Just something to think about for today.

Mine are:
good during drinking: I lost a load of weight
bad during drinking: I lost a lot of weight as I was drinking my calories and was malnourished.

good during sobriety: I have plenty of people I love who actually want to be around me and my life is constantly moving forward
bad during sobriety: My constant food cravings and spending way too much money copying online recipes that never turn out as good as they look in the pictures! Also, I force feed said recipes to the ones I love...

Drinking - Good. I am struggling to think of any, but at a push I think I enjoyed music

Bad. Spilled numerous drinks on my laptop and also disturbed everyone around with my awful singing!

Sobriety - Good.I take far better care of my body, skin, mind, health.
Bad. I spend too much money on books, clothes, skincare (but I'm not drinking of smoking, so what the hell really!)

I find these threads tough because there's not much good I remember from drinking, but there were undeniably good times with mates.

The bad was everything else apart from those few good memories.

Sobriety - honestly everything is good - and nothing bad in the sense that drinking was ever better.

It wasn't

The "good" times occurred only in the very early days of my drinking. Life of the party bs. After that, it was a down hill run. Until now.

Initially I was having difficulty with this topic because there was nothing good about my drinking; but then I remembered not to take myself too seriously, so...

My drinking:
the good: it was good for the economy due to increased consumer spending
the bad: my finances were negatively impacted by my increased consumer spending

My sobriety:
the good: my finances were positively impacted by my decreased consumer spening
the bad: the alcoholic beverage sector of the economy took a huge hit due to decreased consumer spending
