I will not drink today, or ever, because I have no desire to. The beast may want to but that doesn't matter at all to me. That's not my problem.

Because the problem has been removed, it no longer exists, the thought never comes up.

... because the benefits outweigh the detriments.

That and it is nicer to have all that cash in my pocket rather than seeing it swirling and vanishing down a toilet bowl.
