By becoming a nondrinker what benefits have I given up?
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING because alcohol gave me nothing, not a thing. Not relief from stress, only ignorance of stress. Not relaxation, only inebriation. Not pleasure, only stupor. Not relief from pain, only buckets of new pain.
"I want a drink"
BULLSHIT- False Brain Message: I don't drink, I am a nondrinker and DO NOT want a drink. I am FREE from the trap of alcohol.
Do I need willpower to resist the craving, the desire to drink?
NO, because I have no desire to drink since I escaped the delusion that drinking helped or pleasured me in some way. It doesn't. No craving ( except false brain messages which I recognize, dismiss and accept), so, nothing to resist with willpower.
