This is why I am grateful I did not drink today .
Not feeling ashamed and embarassed all the time .
Not worrying about who I fell down in front of .
Not sweating profusely all the time .
Eating and enjoying food again, (not going entire days without eating and dry heaving at the sight of food....) .
Being able to keep my word. (And even wanting to.)
Being able to remember where I was last night .
Seeing my personality come back to life, laughing again. Feeling like "me" again .
Having the freedom to think about things other than alcohol .
No more anxiety .
Not being obsessed about either 'I can't wait to drink. what will I drink. Do I have enough
in the house? etc.' or 'How can I get through this night without a drink?'
Waking up in the morning and looking forward to the day instead of trying to
remember if I did anything stupid the night before .
No more waking up with that panicked feeling thinking "who did I talk to on the phone last night? .
Being able to brush my teeth in the morning without vomiting .
No hangovers .
No more calling in sick and making excuses .
No more throwing up on the side of the road .
No more pregnancy scares .
No more laziness and apathy .
No more "where did that bruise/injury come from?" .
No fear of getting pulled over for a DUI.
No more wondering why my wallet is empty
No more spending money that I don't have .
It's a great day!
