“That’s my whole life right now. I’m trying to be the person that I would like to be when [my daughter] realizes the difference between a good person and a bad person. I’m trying to get a head start on that. I’m happy she doesn’t have to be around me drunk. It’s not a sealed deal yet, I’m taking it (sobriety) one day at a time, but I’m glad she wasn’t born yet when I was going through that. But I also realize that if she grows up to be interested in men, and she loves me, that means however I behave that’s going to be the standard. That’s what she’ll look for in that guy who is one day going to pull up in my driveway to go on a date with her.” —Jason Isbell, via the Chicago Tribune

In the room by myself
Looks like I’m here with a guy that I judge worse than anyone else
So I pace and I pray
And I repeat the mantras that might keep me clean for the day
