...because Santa is loading his sleigh today, and I don't want him to load a lump of coal for me.

because I'm looking forward to remembering the time spent with family tonight.

All this talk of lumps of coal remind me of a Christmas long ago. I was a teenager and we used to do stockings every year. Well, my grandfather always said that he was so bad that Santa got his stocking mixed up with someone else because he didn't get his lump of coal. So one year I found a real stocking filled with coal, and once my parents went to sleep I snuck out and replaced his stocking with the one with coal. He never laughed so hard is in his life. Of course, soon I hung up his real stocking but the memories were fantastic.

... because it's Christmas Eve... which strangely used to be a reason to drink. It's all perspective.

I will not drink today because I'm on my third day detoxing and my intensive outpatient rehab program starts tomorrow. I have too much to look forward to, and I don't want to sabotage this opportunity.

...because I promised by rehab group I wouldn't. And I'm tuckered out, so I'm just going to go to bed instead of drinking myself to sleep.

because I like not having hangovers. I also like to sleep well. And have nice dreams. And not have to get up in the middle of the night to vomit.

Because no matter how bad things might be, drinking would only make them worse.

I will not drink today cause I filled in that deep dark hole I was digging with hope and trust and love, so there's no room to jump back in that hole cause I filled it in with good things.

...because I sobered up on Christmas Eve and I don't want to turn back now. My body needs the time to heal. My most important goal for 2011 is to spend the year learning the tools of recovery so that I can spend the second half of my life sober. Well, hopefully the second half of life, I'm 44 and would love to live to see 88.
