Because on top of the laundry list of usual reasons, I also happened to eat like an a-hole today and just don't have the space to fit it.

because I have a full day planned with activities that vary between difficult and tedious to relaxing and uplifting. I'm learning accept the contrast. Maybe someday I will appreciate it.

I will not drink today or while I'm away from SR or ever because sobriety is my life and when I'm sober, I don't drink.

Because the rational part of my brain is not the one running the show...I'm using what sense I have left to fight off the beast.

...because my internal organs are my friends and I don't want to lose any of them.

I will not drink today because I have a choice. My body no longer is calling the shots, for that I am grateful. Living life sober and free is a gift and I will choose to open it everyday.

Because I want to be able to go to the gym with my partner after work. Because I'll need a clear head when school starts up in a couple of weeks.

Because I'm slowly starting to forgive myself for the things I've done in the past. Plus, having self-respect feels really good.

...because crawling on the carpet at 3am, looking for the one that might have gotten away is an insanity I'm not willing to repeat.

It doesn't sound good whereas a restful night and clear head in the morning both sound heavenly right now.

...because bumping around in my own personal hell has lost its appeal.

... because every word spoken to me makes me want to cuss someone out, every friendly smile makes me want to punch someone in the face... and everything about my day so far makes me want to head for the liquor store. And it's only 8:30 in the morning.

But I won't. I've been through worse, and lived through it. No boyfriend is worth throwing away my sobriety, and especially not one who isn't even clever enough to keep pics of himself out with other girls off Facebook. *Deep breath* No drinking today.

because i am happy! even when i'm not happy, my bad days aren't nearly as bad as they ever were before. i have the capacity for gratitude now.. i feel my feelings strongly, which i've always prided myself on.. i can feel an immense amount of love for my boyfriend who has supported me through thick and thin and i never want to disappoint him or hurt him the way i did when i was drinking/using.

and because my 2 amazing furbaby kitty cats who are crawling all over me while i type and read would be so sad without me and i couldnt bear to leave them alone.

when i was suicidal, they were one of the only reasons i didn't want to die.
