    3 reasons I'm not drinking today:

    1) My Birthday gift to Midwest Sue.
    2) It feels so good to wake up sober.
    3) Just not thinking about it!

    My three for today

    1. I don't really like drinking. It's been a very long time since I actually have.
    2. I never want my children to see me that way.
    3. I get so much more done when I'm sober.

    I'm not drinking today because:
    1. I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired.
    2. I don't want to let myself down, this punishment has to stop and I need to forgive myself, so I can heal.
    3. I don't like who I become when drunk, saying mean harsh words to those I love.

    - I'm starting to feel better again.
    - Sober is starting to seem normal.
    - I never want to go back there.

    1. I'm tired of getting into arguments with my husband
    2. I'm tired of feeling guilty or like a bad human being the next morning
    3. I'm tired of my children giving me shit about my wine.

    3 reasons I am not drinking today

    1) It takes to long (even after the hangover is gone) to get my mind out of the fog. The fog clouds how I feel about myself and the self loathing is almost unbearable.
    2) Being sober is my Gift/ Reward of the day.
    3) I am pushing through the urges, the AV bastard. I have come to realize when I get to the othe side, it didn't kill me! Yeah!

    3 Reasons I will NOT drink today:

    1) I control my life, not alcohol.
    2) I am blessed with all things good when I don’t drink – why would I want to ruin that?
    3) Not drinking has improved my self-confidence….I don’t want to lose that feeling.

    3 Reasons I'm Not Drinking Today

    1. My drinking money was better spent on school supplies.
    2. My sneaky AV is a sneaky little kid and I am a better "Mom" than to give in. (thanks for the analogy Samovar)
    3. My higher power has got my back.

    I am not drinking today because it's my choice, a good choice and it makes me happy
    I am not drinking today because I respect my body and poisoning it with toxins is self destructive
    I am not drinking today because if I open that door I will just go to the same old place and I' m ready to go somewhere new... Today is the 1st of forever!
