It can be discouraging when you don’t see a long list of accolades after your name when you’re making a conscious effort to change your behavior or habits. However, there’s no reason not to celebrate every small victory you achieve! Made it this entire week without using alcohol? Celebrate!

It can help you to keep a positive mindset and to have good self care. We believe in you! Celebrate the small victories.
