because having a cold is bad enough, being drunk and sick is nuts.

Because I am attending my first sober art opening tonight...I used to love going to these because of the free wine almost more so than the art:-)

Because I'm going to do some visiting with family tomorrow. That would not happen if I get plastered today.

I will not drink today cause I don't want to ruin what I've worked so hard to achieve.

*Because I have way too much to lose.
*Because if I start again I might not be able to stop.
*Because I've worked too damn hard to get to the good place I am now.

Thanks, SoberArtistGirl, and welcome to Secular Connections and Sober Recovery.

I won't use today because if I start again I will be dead or in prison. That's the only places that path leads.

Hey sober artist girl (I'm one too:-). Welcome to secular recovery.

I did not drink today because I painted my kitchen...which in the past would have been my "reason" to drink only I would have made a mess of my painting Job!

Because no matter how bad the day might happen to be going, drinking will make it worse and it will make tomorrow bad before it begins.

Despite the fact that my feet are in agony and I am sore from a five hour tour for clients...all over the bleeding city whilst wearing heals. One nice thing...showed space on the 75th floorbof the empire state building on a perfect day...spectacular...I swear you could see the Pacific:-) it makes me happy that they are building another skyscraper downtown..we need more views like that!
