...because I seem to have ridden out of the cynical little snit I fell into over the past few weeks, and being alive feels glorious this morning.

[I really don't use that word enough:

"How are you today recycle?"

"Glorious, thank you."

... because not doing drugs has allowed me to have decent sleep and a clear mind, and it has lead to a sizable (and non-taxable!) bonus for next month. And as an added benefit I'm not going to spend it on drugs so I'll really get to enjoy it.

Recycle, I've been in a bit of a snit for the last few days as well. Glad you're feeling better

Thanks gneiss. I won't drink today because I am not the selfish little creep I used to be.

... because staying in this mindset, "I was a loser," can be kinda harmful, I think. It keeps your own opinion of yourself low, just like alcohol or drugs keeps your self-regard low.

Calling yourself a loser for making mistakes or doing things you shouldn't have or, if you prefer, having a disease, is not helpful. It cuts down what you accomplish by staying sober.

Now if I can just follow my own advice...

because alcohol will make my stress worse, not better. And because I really hate being nauseous.

I will not drink today because I'm just too damn happy as a non drinker. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
