Because I want to help others now... And I used to be so selfish when I drank.

...because I can be aware when I pick-up a drink, bend my arm at the elbow, put the glass to my lips and drink it down...AND Not Do That for the love of sanity/sobriety .

because I don't need it...I want to have this human experience without needing to enhance it or numb it.

because it used to work when i was 20, but now it takes me a week just to 'recover' from even a couple beers, mentally and not just physically. It reignites a whole set of trauma triggers that take so long to go away. I guess you could say my college girlfriend is married and moved, and its just not an option anymore.

1. I want to be able to walk a block without feeling like I may have a heart attack.
2. I want to save the $1000 odd bucks I blew on booze every month and buy a house.
3. I want to save my 3 yr old child the bad influence my father bestowed upon me.
4. I want to stop hating myself for my weakness and find self respect.
5. I want to stop hiding a evil little secret from everyone and re-enter the world outside.
6. I would only have to start recovery over again and it's too darn hard.

Because I'd be listening to a part of me that doesn't care if I self-destruct... the real me doesn't want to self-destruct!
