💡 Filling The Void Addiction Leaves Behind...

Updated: Feb 4, 2022

After you’ve removed a negative, detrimental habit from your life…

.

You need to fill that ‘void’ with something else…

.

Something positive.

.

You need to find a purpose and a passion.

.

If you don’t do this…

.

You will find that it will be much easier, and you will have much more of a reason to fall back into old ways of living and being.

.

When you find a purpose, a passion, it gives you something to focus on…

.

It helps you stay sober…

.

And it makes sobriety much easier and more joyful.

.

The truth is…

.

When you remove an addiction or negative habit from your life…

.

It does leave a void.

.

It’s something you’ve relied on for, most likely, many many years…

.

That habit becomes a part of you…

.

It becomes a part of your being.

.

And removing it feels like you’ve lost something.

.

Of course, you haven’t really ‘lost’ anything…

.

You’ve actually gained a lot.

.

But it feels like a loss.

.

And that ‘loss’, needs to be replaced.

.

Perhaps you’ve had a dream for many years that’s never been fulfilled because your addiction wouldn’t let you achieve it - one step forward, two steps back.

.

If that’s the case…

.

Focus on that dream.

.

Perhaps you’ve never really had a dream…

.

Addiction to alcohol and/or substances gives you a ‘foggy brain’, and destroys your motivation.

.

If that’s the case…

.

Search for something you really enjoy doing, or you think you would enjoy doing, and turn it into a career.

.

On top of that purpose and passion…

.

You need to fill your life with positive, meaningful habits…

.

Whatever makes you feel good.

.

For me, it’s meditation, exercise, growth (education) and business.

.

For you…

.

It’s whatever gives you that ‘feel good’ feeling.

.

Try out new things.

.

If you find you don’t like something…

.

Go onto the next thing.

.

Remember…

.

There’s no such thing as failure, only feedback.

.

You either ‘win’, or you learn.

.

This is something we work on in my 12 month ‘Sobriety Mastery Mentorship Program’...

.

Liberating you from addiction and unhealthy habits of course, being number one.

.

But also looking at every other aspect of your life and improving it in some way.

.

And of course…

.

Finding your passion and purpose in life which is going to drive you forward, towards pleasure, and away from pain.

.

If you’re fed up with the daily ‘grind’ of addiction…

.

Wearing you down, day after day after day…

.

Get in touch.
