"Saving Tomorrow" by Walter Richters

Some advice for the newly

sober. Sobriety is not

a single victory, it’s a

war. An ongoing arm

wrestling match. However

if you love liberation

from the vices that drag

you into the muck more

than you love your fix,

then it’s a war you can

win. It’s about priorities,

willpower, and perspective.

Can you handle the pain

you’ve been hiding from

and subsequently become

stronger in so doing?

Or must you feel better

now in a way that’s

less empowering and more

generic? Are you willing

to cash out your

tomorrows for one

chemically altered today?

Or are your willing

to face reality soberly

and suffer now so that

you can save your future?
