While I was training yesterday I realised how much I was pushing myself physically and mentally, and how much I was enjoying it. And I began thinking how we have got to at some point push through our comfort zone to get anywhere new.
With your addiction you are stuck somewhere.
Imagine that stuckness as a circle.
And freedom is outside of that; you’ve got to step outside of where you currently feel safe and quantum jump into a new reality. That takes bravery, especially the very first step and it will feel weird, uncomfortable perhaps, but you know you are doing the right thing.
Our American members celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday and some got triggered because everyone else was drinking and you can read some of the support below.
The feeling was that there was a sense of ‘missing out’ on the celebrations and the easiest thing to do would have been to conform to what you would ‘normally’ do and what everyone else is doing and remain in your comfort zone.
Step outside and experience something new.
Take that leap of faith and get uncomfortable;
KNOWING that as soon as you get used to your NEW normal then just like driving on the other side of the road when we go on holiday, it becomes second nature.
Then the magic in your life really begins to show itself.
Because you get used to flexing this new muscle and become braver in all areas of your life. You notice how strong you are and immediately have more confidence in yourself. And because you have this new belief in yourself you begin to expand in all areas of your life; it’s like a contagious new disease spreading through the whole of your life, but rather than destroy you it lifts, supports and encourages growth.
Now I can see this courage seeping into different areas of my life, like weight training, and I see how my addiction has had such a positive impact on my life. So don’t make it wrong.
Instead see that you have a chance for true greatness.
See your addiction as a stepping stone of discovery into a new world.
One of confidence, magic and freedom….

In this section you will read something that has been said by one of the Quantum Sobriety Online Programme members over on the very lively private forum:
SOME OF THE IMMEDIATE RESPONSES:
“Sending immediate support and love.
JUST THINK HOW THEY WILL BE SO JEALOUS OF YOU LATER/TOMORROW when they have steaming hangovers and you are feeling fine and dandy. Take yourself into the future and visualise yourself hangover-free and reaffirm WHY you no longer drink. You have got this and you are taking your sobriety to the NEXT LEVEL by experiencing this difficulty.”
“Get involved, without doing the drinking. It works for me and yes definitely look at the future as in no hangover tomorrow and the present blessing is you will remember everything as it really is. No memory blanks.. Xx you will benefit big style later on from not drinking”
“Visualise how wonderful you will feel tomorrow! You are going to do this!”
“You will be so happy later when you go to bed and even happier in the morning with no hangover❞
