Changing Your Life? It’s Time for a Fresh Start with Stairway to Freedom Sober Living.
Whether it’s alcohol or drugs (like opiods), if these items are being abused it will inflict pain upon yourself and the people you love. It’s an addiction and a problem. Most people look for a bottle to find some sort of solution to their temporary problem. But in reality it’s their temporary solution that leads to a life time problem.
A fresh start is a beginning to a whole new life. It’s not easy to give up on something that you’ve been so dependent on. It’s also not easy to start right now! Most people that have an addiction abuse tend to procrastinate. We can all find guilt in that, even if it’s not drugs or alcohol. Finding a substitute for the substance is not healthy either. One of the best methods are to write down your goals and have someone help you stick to them. Start off small. Start by staying active. When you get that urge to take a sip, transition that feeling to a goal that you wrote down. It may even be going outside for a walk, or mowing the grass. You might be liking this idea or hating it, but it’s worth a try right? It’s the self-motivation that keeps you moving forward to a fresh start.
Writing down goals isn’t for everyone though. There’s always other methods of advancing to overcome this obstacle. It’s not only a physical struggle and a major health issue but there’s also a financial aspect of it. How much do you spend a month or even a year in substance abuse? Think about the money you will have now that you are changing your life around. Use that as an incentive to keep going. Use that to represent and to physically remind yourself of how hard you’ve worked towards getting your life back. You have to come up with a positive attitude each time, knowing that temptation is right around the corner. You know there will be times you’ll fall off track, but you need to prepare yourself and create a safety net to protect yourself in the future. It starts with disposing all harmful substances in the house.
No matter what age you are, it’s never too late to start trying for a fresh start. You’re going to look back on your life and start trying to find the good things and major accomplishments you’ve done in this world. This could be your chance to change that. Set an example for the younger generation. Tomorrow’s generation is the future. There is a lot of hurt in this world. But they only follow by example. “When I grow up, I want to be just like you.” Words are everything and only time can heal that. It’s the mistakes we make in life that make us better people. It’s time to move on and enjoy life in happiness.
