Let’s face it, when things are going great, the chances of telling yourself to grab a bottle is very slim.
However, it’s those events or scenario that causes our emotions to spin out of control that we are tempted to start drinking again.
Thankfully, there are things that you can do to keep that dreaded bottle out of your life, and that’s what this article is about. Specifically, we are going to cover the self-talk you can do to convince yourself not to drink again.
Before we cover that part of the article, I’d like to remind you that if in any case you are doing any kind of DIY addiction treatment, I highly suggest that you first consult with a professional. What you are looking for is an outside perspective of your problem. Not just any kind of outside perspective from anyone – from a professional who have already helped a lot of people in the past (hopefully). Now that we have covered that, let’s get back to the topic on hand.
“It Ain’t Worth It”
If there is just one phrase that can help you the most if you are thinking of picking up a drink, then this should be it. It’s one of the best lines for quieting that voice in your head…
You probably want to grab a drink for some reason, and but it’s guaranteed “it aint worth it”.
For celebration? “it aint worth it”.
Because you’re pissed? “it aint worth it”.
Over heartbreak? “it aint worth it”.
If you are making a decision to stay sober, then you will most likely feel disappointed that you fell of the wagon. The worst part, you will probably grab a drink to cover the disappointment. Then the vicious cycle starts again.
No matter what kind of emotions you are feeling, you have a lot of different ways to tackle it and it doesn’t include drinking.
“I Stopped Drinking For A Reason”
Staying sober is not an easy task. It’s a continuous effort of constantly checking yourself. Yet, when things are going good, you sometimes forget that reason why you decided to quit drinking in the first place.
Hence, if that little voice in your head tells you to drink, just remember “I stopped drinking for a reason”.
Each of us has different reasons why we quit drinking. Chances are, this phrase will make you recall the incidents that led you to decide to quit.
“Do I Really Want To Deal With The Hangover?”
This is probably one of the biggest questions you can ask to yourself when you are thinking of picking up a drinking again.
Let’s face it, nobody enjoys dealing with hangovers. Furthermore, you are endangering the clear head you have cultivated from the times that you remained sober. However, there is one thing that is idea that remains true – you will never know how debilitating hangovers are truly are until you completely clear your body from it.
