    What I really don't miss

    I don't miss pretending to have a migraine when really I had a huge hangover.

    I don't miss planning my morning via toilets when I had a bad stomach from the previous night's drinking.

    What I really don't miss

    These posts have been probably the most helpful thing I've seen. It's like a slap of reality for me.

    I won't miss wasting my day full of regrets hungover and depressed, swearing I'll never drink again
    I won't miss feeling like a failure and being disgusted with myself because I drank when I said I wouldn't
    I won't miss missing my morning workout because I'm too hungover
    I won't miss trying to hide the alcohol in my purse, grocery bag, etc...trying to sneak it in the house
    I won't miss trying to figure out what to do with the empty bottles and trying to get them in the trash before the trashmen come
    I won't miss not remembering what I said the night before or who I called
    I won't miss trying to act like everything is ok when it isn't

    What I really don't miss

    Round two:

    I won't miss waking up in the morning thinking "where the fuck am I? for a for a few seconds then it clicking in"

    I won't miss tiptoeing out into the main living area and just acting like everything is cool from the night before when really I have no idea until someone shoots me an evil stare and I just know.

    I won't miss approaching someone and asking who I owe apologies to and what for.

    I won't miss finding new inventive ways to hide the empties (I got to empty computer case at one point)

    I won't miss forgetting where the hell I put the empties to hide.

    I won't miss waking up in the watch house asking the cop why I was there

    I won't miss not having a fucking license.

    I won't miss hearing my fathers voice begging and pleading me to see reason and making excuses for me for so many years and me just throwing it all in his face

    I won't miss sneaking down to the drive through in an unregistered car with no licence just because I needed alcohol.

    I won't miss the fights

    I won't miss the arguments

    I won't miss rocking up at work drunk (twice)

    I won't miss PISSING money away on STUPID things because I was always under the influences somewhat

    I won't miss not having any pride in myself

    I won't miss living from drink to drink and forgetting about everything else

    I won't miss telling lies

    I won't miss forgetting who i told the lies to and shooting myself the foot later only to repeat it the next day

    I won't miss living in guilt.

    I won't miss all the shame.

    I won't miss all the excuses.

    I won't miss all the high horse fucks that saw someone struggling as an opportunity to re-enforce brilliant they were to themseleves rather than realise that someone was struggling

    I won't miss drinking crap tasting wine because there was lots of it, it was cheap, and it got me drunk

    I won't miss being at rehab (although I did learn a lot and would highly recommend it)

    I won't miss disappointing my family, my sister in particular.

    I won't miss being drunk at special occasions and fucking it up for everyone else.

    I won't miss the HUGE phone bills from the calls I don't even remember making.

    I won't miss the HUGE phone bills from the texts I don't even remember sending.

    I won't miss the random bullshit I have from eBay that I don't even remember buying.

    I won't miss losing stuff all the time.

    I won't miss being such a disappointed to myself and wondering how the fuck I got to where I was.

    There is much MUCH more. That is juts off the top of my head.

    That is SO powerful and has made me cry, I can relate to most of them.

    When I am feeling wobbly, I will be re-reading these to remind myself that those days were utter $@#* and I really don't want to go there again.

    What I really don't miss

    Oh my, these are very powerful.

    I don't miss wearing the same pants two days in a row because I have a hangover and don't feel like looking for something different.

    I don't miss having red eyes from drinking too much the night before.

    I don't miss lying or trying to pretend like I am not drinking.

    I don't miss how everything seems so much worse that it really is when you are drunk and then getting so mad about things because I feel brave when I am drunk and will say whatever. Also I have bad language when I am drunk and normally do not when sober.

    I really don't miss waking up at three a.m., dehydrated and worried and wondering when I'll ever find the guts to start day one AF.
