So today I am going to talk about some of the biggest mistakes I see people make in early sobriety or recovery. I say in early recovery, but the truth is, these stumbling blocks can pop up at any time in our lives and at any stage of sobriety so it’s good to be aware and know how to work around them. And we will get to that in a few minutes.
But first, my big announcement!! I’ve been telling you that I was working on a new website, full of tools and resources to support recovery- at any stage. And I am so excited to tell you the website is READY!!
This is officially my first announcement and I can’t wait for you to go check it out and to take advantage of all the good information there- there are courses, a couple of different products over there, many are free and, of course, all of the options to work with me as your coach are all available there.
I want to give you a quick rundown of what you will find there- and I set all of this up to support you and give you ongoing guidance and tools to build your own toolbox full of tools to help you. The website is www.myrecoverytoolbox.com.
Now- on to our topic today! We’re going to talk about some of the major mistakes I see people make in their early sobriety. This is my observation over the course of the last decade+ working with addiction, being an addict, AND being a Life Coach and studying behavior and change and habit.
And many of the things you will hear me talk about today aren’t necessarily specific to recovery or getting sober, but more about making big changes in your life or yourself as a person. Most of the tools I talk about are centered around the art of change and breaking habits and understanding how all of that works. It just so happens that getting sober or quitting drinking is a HUGE change- and it requires action and intention, and being purposeful about the moves you make so you can get the results you want.
It’s like GPS for your life. You wouldn’t get in your car for a cross-country road trip and not use a map or GPS, right? Because who knows what would happen or where you would end up. So it doesn’t make sense to try to navigate a ginourmous shift in your life without guidance and an understanding of your destination.
