The road to sobriety is an endless one. It is a choice we must make everyday. For some, that road is more challenging than it is for others. One thing if for certain, temptation will always be there. What has helped keep you committed to the path towards sobriety?

Keep in mind that I do not consider myself an alcoholic but I did recently start noticing a "need" to have a couple of drinks on stressful days. Then, the stressful days started being more often whether they actually were or not. So by the grace of God I made a preemptive strike and cut myself off. Not forever necessarily but for now. You asked what helps. I have a wife and two young boys and I take my job as a husband and father very seriously. Becoming dependent on alcohol impairs my ability to do both and I owe it to them to be the best I can be. I only have one chance to teach my boys how to be good husbands and good men. There's too much on the line to screw it up.

That I know one drink is too many and a hundred is not enough,I am an alcoholic and live it one day at a time,and the only one I repeat the only one you can give it up for is yourself because at the end of the the day you are the alcoholic, I find great solace in a higher power,buts that's a personal thing other people find their own way, hope this helps someone out there.
