because my anxiety will never get better if I keep pushing it down with alcohol instead of learning to sit with the feelings it brings.

I will not drink today because my sobriety
is a awesome gift that I will protect and
cherish with my mind, body and soul.

The Quality of my sobriety is built upon
steps and principles of a recovery program
lived a day at a time where the Quantity
of day sober is just a number.

Passing on hope that recovery is possible
if you truely want it.

Because the fun lasts about three hours but the misery and remorse afterwards lasts two whole days. Do the math.

'Cause I'm fixing up this old house and I don't want to:
Saw my arm off
Electrocute myself
Smash foot with sledgehammer
Fall off ladder
Spill paint all over hardwood floor
...
Real reason; I would not be tackling any of these worth·while projects if I were still drinking.

Because I want ME back. Because enough is enough. Yes there are family issues, yes, but I am TIRED of having some kind of DEATH WISH because I keep reiterating how devastated I am, how crushed and how life is not worth living. YES IT IS!!! YES IT IS!!!

I'm not drinking today because if I do, one drink will lead to many, and the ensuing hangover will cost me at least two productive days.
