There are reasons why we choose to drink and do drugs. We use so that we can fit in, feel good, and cope with negative emotions. Using was the way you chose to respond to life’s issues. Those reasons are in the past. In sobriety, we are still going to have bad things that happen to us, but we can utilize other ways to cope now.
Today I will continue to better myself. I will continue to put distance between me and my drug of choice. Today I will choose to respond to life’s circumstances in a new and healthy way.
