👊 In Order For Change To Happen...

Updated: Feb 4, 2022

There has to be acknowledgement AND acceptance of the problem.

.

Some people don’t like to admit they have a problem with alcohol.

.

It’s a tough realisation to swallow.

.

What will people think and say?

.

How am I going to manage without alcohol?

.

Am I going to lose all my friends and the ability to go out and socialise?

.

There is also always that desire to get drinking under control…

.

“It doesn’t happen all the time”.

.

“Only sometimes does it spiral out of control”.

.

“I can drink normally most of the time”.

.

Those statements may be true.

.

The reality, is that it will progressively become worse…

.

Binges will turn from days into weeks.

.

Days off work will become more and more frequent.

.

Apologising to friends and family will need to happen more often…

.

Until the “I’m sorry” loses its value.

.

Mental health will slowly but surely decline.

.

Until one day…

.

𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗰𝗸𝗻𝗼𝘄𝗹𝗲𝗱𝗴𝗲 𝗔𝗡𝗗 𝗮𝗰𝗰𝗲𝗽𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗯𝗹𝗲𝗺 𝗶𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗻𝗲𝗲𝗱𝘀 𝘁𝗼 𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗲.

.

Only then can change become a reality.

.

Until that point…

.

It will just be a constant cycle of trying and failing to moderate drinking…

.

While your life falls apart in the process.

.

Once you 𝗮𝗰𝗰𝗲𝗽𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗮 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗯𝗹𝗲𝗺…

.

It gets a lot easier…

.

𝗔𝗻𝗱 𝗮 𝘀𝗼𝗹𝘂𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗲𝗮𝗿.

.

Only when ignorance changes into awareness AND acceptance, does a solution appear.

.

Because the beliefs you hold in your head fill your field of vision…

.

For better or for worse.

.

If you know you have an issue with alcohol…

.

Maybe it’s time to accept…

.

Accept that there is a problem…

.

And allow that solution into your awareness.

.

Because it will appear.

.

If you’re at that stage…

.

Make 2022 your year of change…

.

And 𝗴𝗲𝘁 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗼𝘂𝗰𝗵.
