I will not drink today because the me that's still in there somewhere is slowly coming out a little at a time. And she likes herself enough not to hurt herself.

And I like her enough to want her to come out.

That made me cry a little bit. It's been a long time since I liked the person I am, and I'm just starting to get back to it.

I will not drink or drug today because I got the most killer take-home final EVER, and I MUST do well. No way it can happen if I'm drunk or high.

because a dear co-worker and friend started drinking after over a year of sobriety and I don't want my Facebook to look like his.

Because tomorrow I look forward to waking up just as refreshed and well rested as I do today, and continue my journey through a clean life.

I won't drink because if I did I'd be on an incredibly slippery slope. Everything would go to sh!t and all the hard work I put in would be destroyed. I wouldn't just drink today...who knows when I'd stop?

Besides...I'm tired...I don't feel like spending money...and I haven't had any booze for a while so I don't see the point. My mom likes me sober, too.

And I don't need to be any more dizzy than I am. My sinuses are acting up and giving me a touch of vertigo. I hate it when this happens. Hopefully it will disappear in a couple of days. :P



Life's complicated enough.

I will not drink today because I love the way my skin tingles sober, I love the tides of sober felt emotions, I love being responsible for my actions.

I like having some emotional manageability. A far cry from when my emotions were like a wild carnival ride with a drunk tweaker at the controls.
