I Chose Life, This minute, This hour, This day

by WingedVictory


The sunrise was beautiful this morning. The air was crisp and fresh.

In the moment that I was walking, in the hour, on this day, I realized again that the choice I made just two and a half years ago, the choice to put down the wine glass, to think for myself, to fight for my life…

That choice changed everything.

Everything is different in my world now.

Every single day as I reach deeper inside myself for MY truth, Every hour as I continue to grow from a place of honesty and clarity, every minute that belongs to me!

I am grateful that I stopped washing it all away.

This is my life, these are my dreams, my heart is bursting with gratitude and it began by simply saying…

I will not drink today.

In this moment, in this hour on this day I will Not Drink.

If I’m frightened or bored or lonely I will reach out.

I will read the words of others who have walked the path.

I will find someone to laugh with, someone to cry with, someone who is reaching back.

I will think, I will feel, I will be.

If I am tired I will sleep.

If I am hungry I will eat.

If I am lost I will listen to music, look at art, walk in nature.

Today I will not drink.

Join me .

And slowly in this moment, in this hour on this day we will begin to change the world together.

Beginning with ourselves.

One clear, creative, free, sober moment, hour, day at a time.

It’s your choice.

I made mine.


If you’re drinking a bit too much a bit too often, or a lot too much a lot too often, come talk to us.

Don’t stay trapped because the stigma of not drinking seems worse than the cost of drinking to much.
