I won't get an accurate medical diagnosis from either my neurologist or my psychiatrist if I pick up.

I won't have the pride that comes from my annual sobriety date on October 5th.

... because at one time these emotions felt menacing, and were easily nullified with drinking. Now I realize avoiding them will just take me back to the exact same spot, a constant circle. It feels good to feel feelings.

Because being sober has brought me back into the land of the living...

and saved me money... and got me driving 6 months ago at age 45 (!)... and a car! Which meant I could drive 400KM and visit my 10 year old son... and take him to an air show yesterday! ...and go for a helicopter flight! "Best day of my life Dad" he said. That IS priceless! I want more days like that. That is why I won't take drugs again.

because it's a stupid choice. Only shame and remorse come from knowingly making a stupid choice. Plus the money I'll save will help me buy more pretty things for my house! 600 thread count duvet? Yes, please!

...because I can control my bodily actions is such a way that prevents me from placing alcohol/drugs in my face.

Because I've got better things to do with my day than waste it getting drunk. Today I'm facilitating a workshop for refugees with PTSD and then having lunch with friends at the seaside and a walk on the beach afterwards.

With each year of sobriety I am doing more of the things I wanted to do but never did while drinking.

I will not drink today because I am a non-drinker.

Period.
