I will not drink today because ... it's 3 pm and I haven't had one yet. No need to start now.

I will not drink today because ... I just saw a bald eagle flying in the valley outside my window. Stunning.

Wow! I would love to see that!

I’m not drinking today because I’ve come too far to start up again now. I’m being slightly troubled by thoughts since last night and I don’t like this feeling. Im hoping I can shake it off.

I will not drink today because ... it's cold enough to freeze the nut off a jeep. Minus 21 C. Yikes.

Wow that's nippy. Sunny here and that means I will not drink today because.... I'll be too busy getting jobs done. The sun always gives me a boost to sort stuff out.

I’m thankful I am not drinking and recognize what a slippery slope it is.

Well done BE friends. It’s so encouraging to see others’ persistence. I will not drink today because my anxiety has increased lately. I can’t pinpoint a specific reason but I am 💯 certain alcohol would make it worse.

And well done to you too Scarlet \:)/ \:)/ \:)/ You have succeeded in making great changes and I’m really impressed by what you have done. I hope the feelings of anxiety are resolved soon

I will not drink today because I can’t give up on my streak of days :lol: , I have tons to do today, I’m actually a teeny bit proud of myself for not drinking and I don’t want to hate myself for starting, self sabotage is so annoying and upsetting it’s not worth it.
