There Is A Fork In The Road Which Way Should I Go

Source

ARE YOU CONFUSED TO WHICH WAY YOU SHOULD GO

There are so many obstacles in our lives and hurdles to jump, but when there is a fork in the road which way should I go?

That is the biggest question there could be when it comes to life and when it comes to an addiction to alcohol. Which part of the fork in the road is the right way?

I want to be sober, but than again, I love to drink alcohol and feel that buzz and the feeling that alcohol gives me being drunk. So which is the right decision and which way do I go in life?

When you get to the end of that straight road and then a fork appears is when you need to stop at the fork and think long and hard of which direction would be the best for your life and others that share your life with you.

Remember you are not the only one that will be effected by a wrong decision and the wrong choice of which way you should go. At that fork in the road will be the right way and the other side of that fork is the wrong way.

The decision is entirety in your hands at this point of the road, so make the correct decision because it will indeed effect others as well as your own life. Sit there for days if you have to in order to make the right choice for your life and your future.

ONCE YOU MAKE THE DECISION'

Once you have made that decision, and hopefully it is that correct one, but if your are not sure, you will see sooner or later as you travel miles and miles down that road that you chose.

If by chance you made the wrong decision and took the fork that will lead you deeper into your addiction to alcohol, you must stop and think what you are doing to yourself. The further you travel down that wrong fork in the road the more you will be addicted. If you took that wrong fork, but really are not sure, you will begin to see you life getting worse as the your travel continues the wrong way in your life. It is never too late to turn around and go the right way.

At the beginning of that fork, you just started on your journey to being more addicted to alcohol, and the further down that fork you go the worse it will get. The further you go on the wrong path the harder and longer it will take to return to the beginning of that fork and get your life back in order and live your life sober.

You can turn around anytime you wish if you truly think you have made the wrong decision, but don't wait too long because every step and mile you go down that wrong path in life the harder it will take to get back, meaning getting clean and sober and taking the right turn in that fork and live a life of sobriety.

Think about what you are about to do to yourself and others when you have made the wrong choice in life. That choice you made if wrong can be reversed and you can start and new and sober life again. The decision is in your hands and no one else, so just remember that when you hit that fork in the road.

Dear Mark,

This is a profoundly beautiful analogy that is relatable. Change of any behavior is so exceedingly difficult...one step forward, two back and all that...

Thank you for continuing to spread your wisdom which is motivating and inspiring in tone always. Voted UP & UABI. Hugs, Maria

I was once told "you are a product of your own environment." Somehow, something inside of me rebelled at that statetment. I listened to that still small voice within, studied, researched and indulged in some therapy. I'm so glad I listened because I have learned throughout my life that we can overcome our extended environment.

Your marvelous hub here, is a great reminder that we must always try our best to "take the right fork in the road." Up, more and sharing!

Loved your use of the fork in the road decision making. I also agree with your statement that you can always backtrack if you feel you've made a mistake. Wonderful views.

@Chaya Parmessur - Thanks for your comment and yes there are many forks in the road for all of us. The problem with many people is that if they do take the wrong road many don't try to turn around and start new.

@ vocalcoach- Thank you for your comment and I know so many people that took the wrong road including myself and have turned our lives around and got on that right road. It is all that you make it and what you want out of the one and only life we have. I am so happy now being sober.
