As it’s alcohol awareness month, we wanted to encourage you guys to spend some dedicated time reflecting on your alcohol use or misuse and the ways in which you can pursue healthier habits!
Perhaps you just need to cut back on your drinking in the interest of better help. Perhaps you feel that it would be best for you to stop drinking alcohol PERIOD. Whatever your reason, we’re here to support you! Make a commitment in April to rethink the drink in the way that is best for you and we’ll be right there with you! We know you can do it!
Do you turn to harmful substances when you’re feeling down? We encourage you to find that supportive friend you can lean on in times of trouble. It’s not always easy to ask for help, but it is the healthiest decision you could make. Another option is to seek professional help in the form of counseling. If you’re troubled or you’ve been experiencing a lot of anxiety, depression, or other mental and emotional symptoms or conditions, turning to alcohol or other drugs is the worst step you could take and will only make you feel bad in the long run. Take care of yourself and choose the healthy route!
This week, we wanted to provide you with some encouragement on your journey as you avoid alcohol and other drugs! Feel free to use these with family and friends! Just be sure to tag us @bartowagainstdrugs and use #rethinkthedrink and #bartowagainstdrugs!
Seriously. Whenever the last time was that you had an alcoholic drink, let it be your true last time. Alcohol dependence can lead to untold horrors in your life and there are so many healthier ways to take care of yourself than to numb your emotions in drinks. Or better ways to have fun than partying with alcohol. Find those healthier ways to have fun and to practice good self care and you’ll be on your way to an all-around healthier life! We know you can do it.
Sometimes, just focusing on the healthier things in life can help us to decrease our bad habits simply because we don’t have enough time anymore to focus on them! What are some healthy habits you’re trying to cultivate in March?
