Lots to do today, getting back to work and daily routine... alcohol will not help me achieve anything on my list!

...I'm up early. I've meditated. I'm going for a run. I don't want to spoil a day that has started so well.

I'll be far too busy today to have to resort to getting hammered.

...I have lovely things planned. A walk with the dog, a meditation class, exercise, food shopping and quiet reading. Now that sounds better than opening my gullet to doom.

Sounds lovely Neal ;)? . I also have lovely things planned for today - a run with my 9 year old daughter (about a km :D ), lunch out with friends and a walk on the beach. I’m so glad it’s not ruined with a hangover and won’t be ruined by boozing ;)?

The corkscrew broke. I only bought the wine for cooking but perhaps greater forces intervened....

Some really good reasons to not drink here recently. Very inspiring.

I just figure why bother. If I do I'm going to regret it and have to sober up and do that shitty Day 1 all over again. Plus I like being sober and thinking clearly with a purpose in life.
