My best day sober ...

One of the sayings I hear a lot in AA meetings goes something like this:

My worst day sober is better than my best day when I drank.

Well, personally, I think that is bullshit.
I drank for 32 years and loved it for most of that time. I had a wonderful and fulfilling career. I had great times in the 70's and 80's living in gay Montrose, Houston. Throughout the 90's, I had great times travelling and experiencing the world for my job.

So, I must amend that saying in this way:

My best day sober is better than my best day when I was drinking.
My worst day sober is better than my worst day when I was drinking.

I hate when alkies go on and on about how horrible it was right from the begining.
