Thumbs up I will not drink/drug today because (insert your reason)

I choose to not become a silly hot mess after I pick-up that first drink.

I will not drink today because I know in my head and my heart that it will do so much damage to me and to those I love. I've already done enough damage and don't want to do any more.

I will not drink today, because I'm moody and would surely fire off some regretful emails.

I will not drink today cause it would just give defiant kid (more) ammunition to use against me.

Its a new day, full of possibilities for healthy changes. Drugging will strip me of those possibilities.

I won't use today because I always feel like [email protected] for 2 days afterward. Is it really worth it for a few hours of not-really-fun?

I will not do drugs today because at this moment my ex is on [email protected] chat asking me to buy him coke and I want to be spiteful by not purchasing.

(He's getting more ridiculous. He just told me if I won't drive it 150 miles to him tonight I should FedEx it to him in a coffee can. He must have tied one on this time).

I will not drink or drug today for two reasons: 1. The mental obsession has been 'lifted'.
2. I need to be present in my life today.

I will not drink today because it will only make things so much worse... and make me feel horrible, and it's just not worth the money, the time, the energy, or the regret.

I will not drink today because I value a healthy body and a clear mind more than the passing pleasure (?) some booze will bring.

In keeping with Zen's theme:

I will not drink or do drugs today because I used to be a hopeless dope fiend, and now I'm a dopeless hope fiend!

drinking/drugging limits my life options to jails, institutions and death.

I will not drink today because it would only make me feel worse and would not make the situation better.

I will not drink today because I'm grateful to be present for my children.

Cool

When I was early in recovery, there was a place I wanted to be (to get to). I knew it was possible because others were there already. ....and.....that's the reason why....

...I will not drink/drug today.......because.....(preta got the closest to mine with here reason #1).......:

I DON'T WANT TO!

For those of you ot there yet, may you reach there soon..... (o:
