Reasons for fighting

  1. It never fixes what I’m trying to fix

  2. It’s almost Christmas

  3. I have enough stress from fighting with virtual stores for Christmas presents.

  1. I can heal

  2. I had a very nice clean Christmas. I’d like to keep enjoying it.

  3. I’m really not as bad as I make myself out to be.

  1. I hate assuming I’ll let everyone down.

  2. I’ve gotta believe in myself.

  3. Tomorrow is therapy day.


I like this third, very true.

  1. Avoid hangovers
  2. Better sleep
  3. Wanting a better life for myself and my girls

  1. To get my “head out of my ass”
  2. To know what I need
  3. To know what I want
  4. To git it


My 3 reasons not to drink today:

  1. Regain control of my life.
  2. Not waking up with regret from the day before.
  3. My family need me.

  1. I can put my energy towards what is essentially nothing or worse in the long term, or towards potentially beneficial things

  2. I’d like to know what recovery is like.

  3. I just had my problems validated and I’d like to bask in that a little.

  1. Tomorrow is another quiet day for me and I’d like to enjoy it.

  2. I accomplished some art today. Revel.

  3. Success will happen. It’s inevitable.

  1. As it turns out I’m a much better functioning person than I give myself credit.

  2. I forget a lot that my view on life is much too bleak to be realistic.

  3. I need to be on my side.

  1. I’d like to make my demons tremble before me.

  2. The more work I put towards becoming my hero will lead me to becoming someone else’s.

  3. I can do amazing things.

  1. Don’t want to start the year bad.

  2. I’m up super late and I don’t want to miss out on more sleep.

  3. The more shame I let curdle my soul, the more I prevent myself from dealing with big problems.


@ShamedPuppet after being away for sometime, you have no idea how happy I am to come back and see you still posting on this thread. Its inspiring and perhaps as odd as it sounds but also gives me some comfort… hope you are keeping well x


That warms my heart. I hope you’re well too. :slight_smile:

  1. I don’t want to believe I have to go down with my mistakes.

  2. Loving myself seems like the best way to stay afloat in life.

  3. I hate to be controlled by more than what I already am.

  1. Losing control of myself is a scary idea for me.

  2. First therapy visit of the year tomorrow! Wanna be clean for it.

  3. If I’m not taking care of myself I’ll catch the bugs going around.

  1. Problems will always try to get bigger. I can’t afford to let this one.

  2. I refuse to let this define me.

  3. I need to hold onto that hope for happiness.

  1. To prove that I can clean up my problems myself.

  2. To take another step towards functioning

  3. To stop numbing myself to nice things.

  1. There are more important things in life.

  2. To stop holding myself back.

  3. To have the energy to accomplish.

  1. To have the energy to feel again.

  2. Almost got in an accident today. This would have been a tragically boring life had it ended there.

  3. Less yucky dreams.
