I will not drink today because I like my sober life and won't give it up for any reason.

because..overcoming active addiction is a big confidence builder. Thus giving me the confidence to take on other problems areas in my life.

... because I still feel like I have a long way to go. I start to wonder if the damage ever heals but using sure won't help it get better.

Despite the fact that I am currently sitting at a bar, which happens to be the only place at LAX to get a decent lunch...jeez, this might be the silliest city I have ever visited.

Maybe I'm sober today because I'm in Boston, not LA. Spent 20 crazy years in LA.<G>
