I did not drink today although I'm not 100% sure how I was able to say no to the bosses wife twice!

...because I like being able to walk to the bathroom vs crawling on my hands and knees because I'm too loaded to walk.

...because I have a greater desire to control the direction of my life that give those controls back over to drugs.

I will not drink today because my depression is finally bearable and the last thing I need is drinking a depressant!!

... because I finally remember there's a nice girl inside me who tries to do the right thing and usually gets her work done on time. She was MIA for quite a while.

I will not drink tonight because I'm enjoying the film High Fidelity and the music jokes and references would go over my head if I wasn't sober.

Because I didn't drink yesterday and I got a lot of stuff done and I feel better today than I did yesterday and I want to feel even better tomorrow than today.

Because I had the first drinking dream in months last night, it was awful, I never want to have a drinking reality again.

... because I'm having an excellent weekend on a field trip. I'd hate to be hungover for an 8-hour hike tomorow. West Texas, here I come!

because yesterday was the first day in 3 months that I went to the gym, played tennis with my son and watched a movie at night with my family, fabulous.

Because my daughter and I have bought all the ingredients to make a really nice pie for dinner and I don't want to be drunk whilst we are making it (she is only 5).

I will not drink today because:


I'm too happy to make myself sick and sad.

I don't want to drink.

I can't afford the cost (in every sense) of drinking.

because I saw a terribly depressing movie (Pushing Tin) about air traffic controllers and the last thing I need now is a depressant.

Because I have already done a ton of stuff this morning at work and was genuinely able to tell a colleague when asked about my weekend that I had a 'GREAT' weekend (and not great in the sense of 'I had a great weekend - sub-text - 'I can't really remember because I was so drunk'' and I want to carry on having great days.

...because having an extraordinary and delicately refined mind is impossible when constantly washing it with toxins.

Totally - one of the things I was *hating* about being drunk is my losing of memories - simple stuff that is really important for my job and my life. I have not rebuilt enough neuron links back yet to really improve it, but at least sober I can remember the last few days.
