...because I'm tantalizingly close to 11 months without dope. Just a couple more weeks and I'll have it!

I got better things to do than sit in a bark dank bar and suck on a bottle hooch.

There's no need to get in a drunken stupor to feel super duper.

....I'm going to dye my hair tonite and add three shades of highlights. I do not want to wake up looking like a skunk on acid.

... because I have a migraine (again! WTH?) and drinking/drugs will only make it worse.

I will not drink today... because the decision was taken out of my hands, which I'm happy / thankful for, and surprised that my craving is mostly gone...

And wondering to myself if that counts as a relapse?
Since I've been doing some reading lately: Staying Sober by Merlene Miller & Terence T. Gorski mostly... along with Addiction & Recovery for Dummies (where I found a pamphlet for a church wedged between the pages, hmm) and some of the material says you don't have to have drank to relapse... and I'm pretty sure I would've drunken the wine had it still been sitting untouched in my freezer.

Though, there is other alcoholic stuff in my kitchen and I'm not tempted by any of that... so, I'm proud, but confused.

Drugging will run my mental health symptoms from manageable to bouncing off the walls. Today I choose to continue managing my life in healthy ways.

I will not drink today because I know:

1. It will not make the situation any better.
2. It will ruin what I have already accomplished.
3. I will not be able to think and I really need to be able to think!
4. I would be back at square one..don't EVER want to do that again!

I won't drink today.

... cuz my impression of Drunk Girl from Saturday Night Live is not attractive. Also it is disturbingly accurate.

...because I realized this morning how I must look staggering when I'm drunk as I got out of bed to walk to the kitchen first thing this morning.
