Once you put down the drink, once you get your legs under you, sobriety-wise, it is worth asking yourself this stark but simple question about some of the things you do:
Is this behavior moving me forward? Or deathward?
Sobriety is not about being perfect, it's not about good/bad -- but it's also not about wallowing, nor is it about picking up new ways to self destruct.
So ask yourself sometimes, which direction is this behavior taking me?
You know what I'm talking about.
