repost from sobernoodles: is choice better than no choice?

For me, simply walking through the day alcohol-free was a major task. The idea of doing anything else so profoundly different apart from remaining sober took time, effort, and a very deliberate and determined sense of purpose. Binki at sobernoodles nails it when she writes about the simple fear of the unknown (i.e. uncontrollable) outcome that arises when we step into that indeterminable gray void called “free will.”
