Well said Cowboy. You rock.

I will not drink today because ... I'm enjoying the sober life too much.

Yes CB you certainly do!

A little late today but I will not drink today because I am becoming a machine at work again and don't want to ruin that.

My children have special days approaching. I was thinking it’s my gift to them to be completely sober and present, but really it’s a gift to myself to be able to fully experience their joy and celebration.

I will not drink today because I am doing my roots with henna and that stuff is permanent and sticks to everything. :lol2:

Well said Scarlet. My kids are all grown now and living on their own. I cherish the memory of those days when they were younger. More sober time with them would have been ideal but no looking back.

I thought henna was kind of a tattoo thing Ali. I know it's pretty permanent though.

I will not drink today because ... life is good.

I will not drink today because it does not serve me. (and I'm in double digits now).

It is CB - does hair too if you like a nice bright red/orange glow. I've ruined a fair few items around the house doing it after a few vino's. Including an interesting cheeto looking face when I fell asleep one time... :D

I thought this was lovely Scarlet. So pleased for you that you’ve reached a good place in terms of sobriety.

Similarly I was thinking I will not drink today because I want to be present in the moment not in a fog or a blur.

Awesome posts on here this morning and some very good reasons for not drinking - as I I need any.

I will not drink today because ... the advantages of being sober far outweigh the disadvantages. Are there any disadvantages?

Totally agreed SG.

I will not drink today because ... it's a colossal waste of time and besides it ruins my morning coffee when I do.

Agreed on the time wasting.

I will not drink today because I have a new family member to show around the neighborhood as soon as I clock off! (9 month old 55kg Rottweiler boy)

I will not drink today because I witnessed a friend who’d had too many this evening and was reminded of what I probably look/sound like when I’m drinking. I’m so thankful to be on the other side.

I will not drink today because I can’t deal with the root of my feelings if I’m numbing them.

Very true Scarlet.

I will not drink today because I want to be sober more than I want to drink.
