Darcy, others, how about the title "I will not drink today because . . . ."
To me, that's a wee bit more powerful.

I won't drink today because I'm going to see my aunt and cousins tomorrow and I don't want to dread it, I want to look forward to it.

I will not drink today because I want to complete the three month challenge this time without any slip-ups. I also need to get organised and start packing for my next trip to France. It'll make a change to unpack and not think "How the hell did that get in here!!"

HI my BE Friends!

Jos, Darcy everyone! Thank you so much for the kind words to the Lunatic. I got my 3 Month Chip last night and it's a green one this time...They make me feel so good and proud of all the hard work. Mind you...even tho I'm SOBER...I am STILL a Lunatic?!?!?!!? :x

I forgot my purse at the meeting and had to call up a nice friend and drive back to the next town and thankfully she had a key to the Church where the meeting was held and I could get my purse. DINGUS ME!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will NOT drink today becuz it fells TOO AWESOME to be sober and getting lots of things done.

Love to all,

Momma Kitty =^..^= xo <:)> :mrgreen:
