because I remember how good I feel not drinking
came very close last night, Italian restaurant, beautiful spring light, everyone around me with large glasses of wine, it all looked so appealing. I had a non alcoholic beer.
I remember someone on another forum slamming someone for doing that, but it got me through and I woke up today feeling good

... because i have wasted far too much time already. But i try to take a positive from that if i can, by learning, and appreciating the fact 'i always have the choice', its just up to me. Life was a sham, but it doesn't have to be... it really is what 'you' make it.

I won't drink today because I'm a non-drinker.

... because who wants to go out in this cold, disgusting rain for such a useless pastime?

(Though to be fair we really do need the rain.)

Its good for the flowers... that i never knew existed, or even noticed until i got sober. The world is simply a better place by far, when you look at it straight.

I will not drink today cause I've earned back my daughter's trust and respect and don't want to lose it again.

...cuz I just don't want to.

I look over my fence at all the homeless people surrounding the liquor store at 6:AM, and I choose my garden, my cat, my birds, my partner (in that order! ), my job, my dinky little appartment, my life...over that! I drink and use like I eat, and I'm a big ol' fat boy.

because the day is almost over. And because I like the feeling in my body of being sober.

... because if I think the insomnia is bad now, just wait until I've been smoking dope. Gawd. Horrible.
