Stop Drinking - How To Stay Strong After You Stop Drinking
Keep That Positive Attitude
So you want to stop drinking, but how do you stay strong after you stop drinking? This is one of the questions many alcoholics asked them self and one of the reasons why they hesitate to stop drinking in the first place.
To have something such as alcohol in your system for so many years and just to cut alcohol off is something many of us fear. We fear the life of sobriety. We wonder how we will ever survive without alcohol in our lives.
No one should fear to be sober nor the beautiful life of sobriety. I am here to tell you that anyone can get sober and stay sober forever if you have it in your heart to do so.
In order to make this huge life change by quitting drinking will take you thinking only in a positive way from the minute you stopped drinking until the end of time here on Earth. You must stay strong to yourself and believe in yourself more than you ever had in your life.
This is a very important thing to remember when you are trying to stop drinking alcohol. Without having a positive attitude and believing in yourself the success of having long term sobriety will be hard to achieve, meaning you may want to be sober, but are you willing to carry this sobriety with you for the rest of your life.
Every alcoholic that has tried to stop drinking, including myself, has run into something in their life that will trigger something in their mind that makes them take that first sip of alcohol, and by doing so they will relapse and be back right were started from. All that hard work of getting sober and taking that first step will all be in vein.
Never Give in to the Demons
Staying strong is the hardest part do to the fact that so many things arise in one's life that they may think at first, maybe I should drink to ease the pain or try to forget about what is happening in my life.
You have to be strong enough to say no to the drink and figure out whatever us wrong or whatever problem you may have by being sober and not give in to your demons and start back drinking alcohol.
It is so hard for alcoholics to say no when it come to the urge they may get to have a drink. This is when you have to be the strongest you have ever been in your life or else your inner demons will win you back over and you will be right back drinking and possibly drinking more than before.
Please don't ever give in to the demons that lye within. They are just waiting for you to mess up and give into your past addiction to alcohol. What a crying shame that would be if that happened to you are someone you know. If that happened to me I would so disappointed in myself that I may never what to try again, BUT if it did happen you and I must get back up and try all over again and hopefully sobriety will work for you and I the second time.
I have seen many people that have taken many time to try to get sober and sooner or later they stayed sober for many of years.
You need to continually stay positive and not let anyone or anything make you go back to your old way of drinking alcohol no matter what. If you do you will be very sorry that you gave in for that one sip of alcohol that turn your life back upside down.
Whatever happens in your life never be defeated by the demons that are still inside you waiting in the wings to strike again.
