Never Accept No For An Answer When It Comes To Getting Sober
THE WORD NO
Never accept no for an answer when it comes to getting sober means to me to never give up until you have achieve your sobriety.
I am sure you have said the word "NO" more times than you can remember, but have you ever said "No" to something you knew you must do?
- NO I can't do this.
- NO I can't get sober.
- NO I can't quit drinking.
- NO I will never be able to get clean and sober.
- NO I will never be successful in my life.
- NO I will never amount to anything in life.
- NO I will never pass this test.
- NO I will never have any money in my life time.
Saying the word "NO" is such a negative word to me. The only good the word NO is for me is when someone has offered me a alcoholic drink and I have to honor and the pride to say "NO THANKS !" Other than that I rather not use the word NO.
When it comes to things we wish to do in life or achieve, something like the word NO will stop you right in your tracks. NO, I won't be able to do it or achieve it. How can you possibly know if you can't do something if you don't even try, and that includes getting and staying sober.
Saying the word NO when it comes to getting sober is the wrong way to look at your life and your future. Being that negative about getting sober and having sobriety back into you life will never happen by thinking this way.
You need to think positive and be ready to say the word, "YES I can achieve anything in life" and that includes my sobriety.
You need to believe in yourself more than anything in life and without believing in yourself you will never be able to achieve anything. Believe and you will achieve!
LIVE EACH DAY LIKE YOUR LAST
Living each day like it was your last doesn't mean to drink yourself to death. It means that you should live it clean and sober and enjoy what God has given us. There are so many wonderful things in each person's life and many just don't take of using them or doing them in a sober way.
Many alcoholics think that life is great being drunk, and everything they do or see is just the way it should be. Looking through the eyes of a drunk person is much different that seeing life sober. To see life in a clear vision and to be able to remember that vision is how you enjoy every moment of your life.
Getting back to saying the word "NO." Never except no for an answer when it come to your sobriety and your life, but learn the word NO when it comes to turning down that offer of a alcoholic drink. In that case, be proud and happy you know that word NO. It always makes me feel wonderful when I am offered a drink and I proudly say, "No Thanks I stopped drinking years ago. Their eyes get wide open in disbelief because the same person standing in front of you remembers when you were pounding the drinks right around with the best of them.
Everything in life changes my friends and if you do have an addiction to alcohol, please consider changing your life and stop drinking and killing yourself !
