Because alcohol is a false friend, a poison and a disaster... and my body and soul deserve better!

I'm starting to regain my health and maybe, just maybe I will see my boys grow into successful men.

As I know it, there is no spooky mystery to not drugging/drinking when determination to recover is at play.

... because I'm above the learning curve. I've finally learned how to be sober again, and I like it. And I like myself a little bit again.

...I have a small, unsteady flame growing inside, and I don't want to douse it.

because I have no desire to. (I'm not sure when that happened, or if it will last, but I like that!) I remember always wishing I had no desire to drink, now that it's happened I certainly want to keep it that way!

I will not drink today cause I don't want to put myself back in that deep dark hole I was in. Besides, living sober is so much more fun.

... because an old friend is in the hospital at this moment recovering from an overdose. As much as I hope he gets pointed in the right direction, there's also a part of me that knows I could easily have been using with him; it could easily have been me.
