How Positive Thinking Can Help With Quitting Drinking Alcohol

Updated on July 20, 2014

Positive Attitudes

The big question people ask me is, "how positive thinking can help with quitting drinking alcohol." i am going to explain just how positive thinking helped me and it can help you too stop drinking alcohol.

For many alcoholics they think nothing but negative thoughts and get rapped up in the endless cycle of drinking alcohol each and everyday of their lives. By drinking alcohol everyday and abusing it as well tend to put the person in negative thoughts as if there is nothing to even live for beside their alcohol and their addiction to it. They forget what living sober really feels like.

Many that know me and what I write about know that I stress living life sober and thinking positive each and everyday of your lives. I don't want to tell you how to live your lives, but I am here to tell you that by living with a positive attitude in your life can make a world of difference in your success and your decision to become clean and sober. It may not sound like something that could change your life, but believe me positivity does indeed work and is the difference in staying addicted or becoming clean and sober.


Rejoice with Positivity

What Your Mind Can Do

You would be surprised just what your mind can do when you put your mind to it. The way you think and what you think about can be the difference in being happy and being sad or being positive or being negative in your everyday living.

If everyone in life could make this change to being positive each and everyday the world just may be a better place. The fact of the matter is that so many people have many things going on in their lives, whether it being a sickness in the family, the loss of a loved one, financial problems and so many other things that being positive and thinking positive seems like it will never come. When you think about it how can you really be happy and be positive when so many things may be going wrong in your life.

I for one have had many things go wrong in my life and still going wrong as I am writing this now. My wife's stepmother is home on Hospice and her brother is in the hospital very sick all in one weeks time. So when you think everything is going great something happens or goes wrong to possibly but you in a negative frame of mind, meaning why is this all happening?

I am just using my life as an example, but as you know all over the world these things happen to make a positive day turn into something negative. We must not ever let negativity take over our lives. We must try as hard as we can to try to stay positive even though things are not going the way we want them to be.

SORRY, I got the beaten path here, but getting back to how positive thinking can help with quitting drinking alcohol is a sure thing if you have it in your heart to make it work.

When I was living in my little world of negativity and alcohol addiction I never thought in a million years I would ever see sobriety in my life again, until one night a most powerful voice came into my head, and we all know that voice don't we or may be we never heard it. I heard it and it was a life changing experience for me.

I went from drinking alcohol everyday of the week to not a drop to drink for a year and a half now and never looked back. the only time I think of alcohol is when I write about it here on Hubpages and other articles on my websites.

The voice, the voice of God, has given the strength, the willpower and the determination to become clean and sober once and for all. The voice change my outlook on my life from always being negative to thinking positive in everything I do now.

So, if you really want to quit drinking alcohol and change your life, start thinking positive and you will be really surprised just how thinking positive can change your life in so many ways and you will start be feel happy and start to live a fulfilling life and enjoy your life and your families.
