Anytime you’re trying to change a habit or better your life, it’s a good idea to have a strong support network. How many friends or family members could you count on to hold you accountable for that new habit you’re trying to cultivate? If your habit is to avoid harmful substances like alcohol, opioids, or marijuana, it is doubly important that you have people in your corner to cheer you on and advise you on the path you’ve chosen to tread. If you feel lonely in your walk or like you’re particularly struggling, take a long, hard look at your social and family group to see if they are supportive of your values and convictions. You can do it! We believe in you!
