...because;
I am empowering myself to accept the things I cannot change,
I am growing the courage to change the things I can
and my wisdom is evolving to know the difference.

I have the new SoulSavers album and some music isn't made to be heard with a fuzzy brain.

I'm not going to drink or use because its a beautiful day and I'd much rather spend it at the lake.

I'm not going to drink today, because it will ruin my life.
And life is too short already....

I will not drink today, because I'm slowly (or maybe not so slowly) killing myself and I'm starting to really love my life.

Because I can't, I am allergic, and If I do I will die.

That is the simplest thing I have to say to myself........

I will not drink/drug today because I owe it to my wife to be there for her the way she has been for me.
