Reasons for fighting

  1. Feel less like a dirtbag

  2. Ignoring the problem has successfully done absolutely nothing helpful and it sucks.

  3. We’re all role models whether we like it or not.

  1. I’ve got a good streak of “doing functioning things” going.

  2. I’d like the authority of someone who’s at ease with themselves.

  3. It’s about time my values and my actions match.

  1. No point in giving up. It gives me nothing.

  2. Advice for anxiety seems to boil down to “run screaming at the thing”. I am anxious about quitting.

  3. Recovery isn’t a straight line, and I’m not a straight person. It’s a match made in heaven.

  1. The only way to survive the immense stress that my father has decided to drop on me is by being healthy.

  2. I’m going to call my brother tomorrow and that requires some semb


Crap my app is glitching. Just gonna finish this in a second post.

… some semblance of functioning.

  1. If this is as low as I can be without making crap choices that’s a bad look for my future.

  1. My hashed together attempts at a comfort zone are not sustainable or improving things.

  2. I don’t want this to keep changing me.

  3. For better sleep!! Yeah!

  1. I want to put this part of my life to rest.

  2. My catastrophic viewing of the world has not proved realistic or helpful, so the thought I might not win can’t be either.

  3. I’ve changed a lot in just a few years. This may be the one I change again.

  1. To be a better mother to my kids.
  2. I can not control myself or the consumption of alcohol once I start.
  3. To not kill myself and my body by pouring poison in it.

  1. To push myself, compassionately, but to push
  2. To see life through a lense which is not affected by unconscious drives.
  3. To curate happiness, beauty and love all around me


Love this thread!

  1. My life goals (I’m going to die either saying “I did want I set out to do” or “I drank a lot of martinis” because I can’t say both)
  2. My body, the toll it was beginning to take was showing in so many ways
  3. My money, I was giving my money to A-holes executives selling me their brand of poison.

  1. For all the folks who’ve been so great about helping me.

  2. For no more nights in tears while I ask myself what I’m doing

  3. For the little kids at the library that wave to me. They warm my day.

  1. For my patient therapist who reasons with me.

  2. For the things I want to create, I need to function to finish.

  3. For my new, scary goal.

  1. It would make for a crappy Sunday.

  2. I’m in a rush to get to my warm bed.

  3. I think I’m getting sick and I don’t want to be more miserable than I may be tomorrow.

  1. Less tears in the middle of the night

  2. I’m sick of sticking my head in the sand.

  3. Wanna be proud of myself.

  1. God
  2. My children & Myself
  3. My family & Friends
    These reasons keep me going even when I fail at times. The failing is becoming more an more scarce, my sobriety is out weighing my failures. NEVER GIVE UP NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES U BACKSLIDE!! :slight_smile:

  1. Just because I can’t see my mom anymore doesn’t mean she’s not still there, watching.

  2. I accomplished a lot of good work today.

  3. I already had one cry today. I think that’s the only one I want.

  1. To stop feeling like I need to punish myself.

  2. To stop feeling like I can’t control or improve myself.

  3. Haircut from a friend tomorrow! I’ll take any positive interaction I can get.


I love what you’re doing. Keep up that motivation, you motivate yourself while you motivate others.


This is the reason, missing 1 child in the pic too. :heart_eyes:


Uaagh my app won’t let me like posts anymore but I appreciate yall.

  1. Things often work out better than I expect. Working myself up over the future and making bad choices is not helpful.

  2. I don’t want to be ashamed.

  3. I have worth. Pretending I don’t because that’s how it feels sometimes won’t change that.
