For many reasons. But mostly because I do not have that obsession today. And that didnt happen over night. Took some work.

I will not drink/drug today because

There is freedom for growth when the constricting world of addiction has been shattered.

I don't want to return to 24 hour paranoia and unending guilt.

... because even nearly a year after I quit it is still causing trouble for me; coming between my friends and I, and the rumors are still circulating. Starting up again would only prolong the agony.

Because me using drugs and alcohol makes me, my family and friends hate me, and keeps me from doing something crazy and stupid!

There are better things to do today than to sit in a dank bar with other drunks. Drunken political discussions...Oh My Gawd......insane!

I have a working concept of a HP (read as higher purpose, I know this is a secular thread) and an amazing amount of positive momentum as a result. Plus my cats need to be fed and the GF likes an occasional night out on the town.
