I drove drunk last night and that is something I promised myself I would never do. I put myself and other people in danger by getting behind the wheel drunk. And I also have to write 5 essays, start and finish a research project by Tuesday and countless other schoolwork.

Alright for getting your schoolwork done! I have a take-home final and 2 final projects to finish this week. It's a sprint to the finish now, only one more week of feeling like I won't get it all done.

And guess what? If I was out drinking and doing dope I wouldn't get it done. That's why I'm not using today.

(Zen, I know the emotional thing of a drunk tweaker, can you imagine doing homework on that carnival ride? Not pretty.)

I'm not willing to go through those horrifying fiendish cravings that happens when the dope is all abused up.

I like myself when I'm sober. I cant say that when I'm a hungover hot wet mess.

I won't drink or drug today because I hate the way I feel, smell and taste the next morning.

I will not use today because meth farts are HORRIBLE. (Sorry if that's too much info but it is the absolute truth.)

I will not drink today because I want to be happy, drinking gives me a buzz but NEVER leaves me happy once the buzz has passed

I won't drink today because I'm a non-drinker. (I may repeat myself with that one, because I don't want to forget!)

Just someone: "Would you like a drink CP?"
CP: "No thank-you, I don't drink

Hurray for me!
