Hi SC group!

I will not drink today because I have a life to live, and I don't want to look like this.

Great thread!

...because spooks, ghost, gobblens and mysterious jazz-a-mer-azz wont keep me sober. I will do that job with my solid as concrete intention of will to chose sobriety.

...because drugging brings me down so low that I start living subterranean with the rats and worms.

...because it is joyous to have no need of bowing down, scraping and the bending of my knees to get the liberation of being free from an addiction disease ('disease' used only for poetic purposes...read illness otherwise ).

because I love being able to drive anytime I want

and because while I can't control everything, I can make sure my kids don't end up with mom who has to serve a jail sentence for a DUI...or worse

because I'm tired of all the things on my to-do list that pile up for the next day, and the next day and don't get done!

because I'm feeling a little more like "me" today and not that numbed-out zombie crazy person who feels helpless and out of control!

Great SoberJennie! So nice to say goodbye to that zombie crazy person.

Today, I did not drink because I am loving my hangover free mornings.

because I'm ready to do the hard work... because I want to re-discover that person I covered up in my teens... and to discover the rest of me that's been hidden and pushed down by alcohol... because I'm still afraid of things... but my courage to live is stronger!
