Welcome to Secular Connections atimeofchoice.

I really like your reason for not using so I am also going to say

Today I will not drink/use because for the first time in my life I know my own worth.

I will not drink or use today because I want to have full control of my faculties when I work on some numbers later today.

I will not drink today because I feel better than I have in a year in spite of being kind of brain dead from lack of consistent sleep, and I don't want to lose it now. I have no desire to drink, oddly enough. This last year has been a pattern of binge drinking then 3 days off here and there then right back at it.
Blech.

I will not drink today because I am finally realizing that life is much better without being constantly drunk.

I will not drink today because I'm looking forward to tomorrow, day 4 of sobriety and no guilt for drinking today.

because I never want to look in the mirror and see that sad, hopeless face looking back at me ever again.

I will not get high today because I respect myself too much to let drugs control me.

-Because I want to remember if I had conceived a child the night before.
-Because I don't want to hurt, embarrass, and confuse the person I care about.
-Because I am worthy of a healthy lifestyle.

I will not use or drink today because I want to raise my chances of waking up in the morning.

I will not drink today because I do not want to void the promises I have made to myself to not ever drink. I don't like being a liar.
So I will not lie. I will not drink.
