...I'm not for going back. 5 weeks sober!

I got that morning buzz today Cowboy - waking up on a Sunday morning without 36 hours of weekend drinking is how I like it. Got up, drank tea, read and readying for a walk now: no breakfast booze or planning where/when to waste my hard-earned money on more poison to launch me further towards Monday hungdown and hungover.

Yes, I'm not for going back on five weeks of sobriety.

Love to hear that positivity Neal. And 5 weeks is awesome work. Looking like a sober summer for both of us and that suits me fine.

I will not drink today because ... it just takes too long to rebound. Drinking really is not worth it.

No drinking for me today, lovely day and I don't want to waste it.

Good call Resolution.

I will not drink today because ... spring is in the air, the sun is shining and a bike ride is in order. Why spoil that with alcohol.

...I'm not doing Monday night drinking (again) no matter how bad the day (again) is going.

...it'd be such a waste: time, money, health, belief in myself, wellbeing and more would be thrown away, drunk down and passed [typo] away.

I will not drink today because I want more from life than this cycle of anxiety and depression that my alcohol abuse seems to cause me.

Thanks

I will not drink today because ... a week in and I am truly beginning to feel normal. There is still alcohol in my system but I sense it being purged. Hopefully for once and for all.

...I know the worthlessness in doing so and the merit in chosing not to.
