"You can get help from teachers, but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting alone in a room." - Dr. Sesuss
This is important to remember. You can read all the inspirational quotes, follow all the sobriety accounts for advice and relatability, read all the self-help books in the world, but you have to realize that you and only you can change your story. Doing all the things above is amazing and is a great step to change, but you have to be willing to sit with your own thoughts.
Sitting with those feelings can be uncomfortable. Let's be real here; we drank so we didn't have to sit with our own thoughts and whatever was happening around us. It was our escape. But was it really? Were those few minutes of relief worth it for the torture you put yourself through the next day? The negative self-talk, the not being clear-headed, the just wanting to get through the day so you can get to bed.
Are those few minutes of relief worth it? No, because it's the same cycle every single time. You're never getting to the root cause. You're just masking over it again and again, and each time you do that, you make it worse.
Trust me, speaking from personal experience and the stories I hear every day that alcohol never makes anything better. It keeps you living your own Groundhog Day hell.
Getting to the root cause is how you break the cycle, and this is what I help you do in 1:1 Coaching and the Confidently Be Alcohol-Free - 60 Day Challenge.
The challenge is for mothers who are really committed to changing their drinking habits and are looking for extra support and accountability while getting resources, tips and coaching throughout the 60 days. If you’re interested, click the link in my bio for more details and to register.
