Congratulations on making a wonderful decision to remove alcohol from your life. Remember you are a unique and wonderful person and believe in yourself.
As adults we often believe we must continually
justify our place in the world, that we have to somehow prove to other people
that we are, extremely self-confident and worthy of their esteem. We will spend excessive amounts of time
feeling anxious and afraid that we won’t meet other people expectation and we
lose sight of the basic fact that we are usually all right just as we are, in
spite of the fact that we are not perfect.
You have recognized what is not good for you and that takes tremendous willpower. Keep on putting one foot in front of the other. If things get tough or you are tempted to go back to the drinking remember you don't need the alcohol, it will not make your problems or fears go away but instead it may cause you to make bad choices. After the fact you will feel worse so talk yourself out of picking up that can or bottle.
Please be very proud of yourself and know that we are here to support you.
