I will not drink today because ... I truly enjoy my mornings sober. My body enjoys those mornings as well.

Well done on 3 weeks Neal. Keep it going.

I will not drink today because it feels good to have a week sober in the bag and I want more. More clear days, more appetite, more life and living. It OK to be selfish in your sobriety.

This thread has been one of the most helpful threads to post on and to try to BE my own Words. I believe I will post in other places but come back in a couple of months here again. Thank you to all!

I will not drink because it is unhealthy for me to do so!

...I'm thinking about a long haul now. It's only three weeks, and a month milestone ahead. The last time I had a sober spell like this, if I remember correctly, I was sober for a couple of years.

Who knows? But I know I'd like total abstinence.
It's early days, and I will be vigilant, but I'm feeling strong about this right now.

Love the positivity Neal and I have been in these parts long enough to remember those days.

I'm feeling much the same and hope I can manifest that feeling.

I will not drink today because ... I bought a new guitar and want to play and play and play - sober.

Morning guys.
I like that one Neal - short and to the point!

I will not drink today because I've got too much to be getting on with over the coming weeks and drinking will slow me down.

..... I'm liking how our glass recycling box isn't overflowing with wine bottles. If it stays as it is, I won't have that feeling of embarrassment when it's time to put it out next week!

I will not drink today because it's a beautiful day and spring is in the air. Why spoil it by getting plastered?

I will not drink today because its day 13 and I don't want to use the excuse of it being an unlucky number. I'm in control and it's my choice. I can take responsibility!

Well done everyone.

I will not drink today because ... I can't handle the after effects anymore. I just can't.
