When you quit drinking, it leaves a lot of available time you have to fill and to protect yourself and STAY sober, you should have a plan for how you will fill that time so you don’t get caught in the moment with no plan and you panic!
If you recognize you have moments in your day that are more challenging than others, you need a plan for how you will cope with those moments and fill in that space so you can soar through it with no sober problem.
The concept of a vision is to get a little ways out and imagine what you want it to look like.
I look at what goals I want to accomplish- but when I get down to the nitty gritty, in order to accomplish any goal, it’s about ME being the person who accomplishes those goals. If I set big goals, then I have to challenge myself to step up to the plate in big ways to achieve it.
If you have been struggling with cravings, anxiety, boredom, you know you want to quit drinking even though you haven’t had any major rock bottoms- but you haven’t been able to string together any significant time.
Each day you say you aren’t going to drink, but by evening, the committee is winning the fight, telling you to drink, it’s not that big of a deal, you can start over tomorrow-
You feel alone, like no one cares, lost and overwhelmed.
This is where a clear vision can help-
Maybe you feel like you are missing out, you can’t wrap your head around quitting drinking forever, you can’t imagine how you will relax or enjoy social events.
Instead of obsessing about those fears, let’s put your energy into something positive- like building the vision of what you CAN do- who you CAN be, and seeing exactly what that looks like.
Let’s create a plan and fill in the gaps- build you a plan so you know what you are doing, how, and why.
