There is so much content in this community with a blog everyday for a number of years now. I thought it was time to revisit some of our favourite quotes, short blogs, and images that you may have forgotten about.
We all know a hopeful drunk who does.
We all know someone who is searching for the right path to sobriety.
We all know someone who is following the path and learning the route.
We all know someone who is sober but believes it has to be a lifelong struggle.
And you know at least me that has got to the Holy Grail of freedom in sobriety.
So you have at least six choices when it comes to over-drinking (or over-anything).
Six realities that you can choose.
What are you choosing?
If you have a look at the picture below of the lanes of traffic; to have a safe and effortless journey you have to choose a lane to drive in, right?
We all know that!
So why don’t we apply it to the decisions that we make.
Why would we say,
“I want to stop drinking”
And then allow a voice in our heads to say,
“Go on have just one”
When we know full well that the ‘just one’ leads to the ‘just the whole bottle’.
It’s like driving in between two lanes of traffic, with two wheels in each lane, not committing to either one:
AND WE WONDER WHY WE ARE STRUGGLING!
Freedom in Sobriety is all about full commitment to the decision to be sober.
No second guessing.
Both wheels / feet.
And it is ONLY with full commitment that FREEDOM can open up.
And dare I say it, it becomes easy….
