How do you stay motivated?

How do you stay motivated to continue in your sobriety journey? It can be difficult to maintain a strong conviction when “everyone else is doing it.” A lot of people drink alcohol and consume other harmful drugs, but you can be strong in your plan to rethink the drink! We believe in you!

Dealing with pain

Sometimes, emotional or physical pain can feel like it’s defeating us. In times of high stress, many people turn to alcohol and other harmful drugs to cope with the trauma. However, these are fleeting, momentary solutions and will not help you deal with your pain longterm or even help you process the source of the pain. We encourage you this week to research better ways for coping with emotional and physical distress. Find a well-reviewed therapist in your area. Take up a hiking habit and enjoy the fall colors. Focus on good self-care and healthy habits. We know you can do it!

Are you a binge drinker?

Binge drinking (5 or more drinks in a 2 hour period for men, 4 or more drinks during the same period for women) can lead to alcohol poisoning (which can be fatal) along with other issues.

It can be easy to give into temptation and binge on alcohol when at a party with friends or in another social setting where drinking is commonplace. Just remember to rethink the drink when you are in those situations. Choose a mocktail instead of an alcoholic drink! Try a new soda or tea. Just because you’re out with friends doesn’t mean you have to imbibe.

We believe in you! Stay strong this week.

Are they really friends?

This week, we want to encourage you to really examine the relationships in your life. Are the people you’re hanging out with encouraging you to do healthy activities? Or are they dragging you down into activities and habits than can negatively affect your life?

Are you caving to peer pressure?

It can be really easy to go along with the crowd and with what is popular. But is that really what’s best for YOU? This week, we wanted to encourage you to take a hard look at your life. What are you doing with it? Are you participating in activities that are harmful to your health like alcohol and other drug abuse? Are you just going with the flow of the crowd? We hope you’ll disengage from the activities that are harmful to your health for your sake and for the sake of being a good example to others.
