The first thing you need to do achieve in giving up alcohol for good is to just arrive at the decision that you do really want to give it up. This is in fact the most complicated part and then it’s just plain sailing if you really do feel that you are ready to do it. You need to have a really positive attitude towards your own goals of quitting alcohol for ever. Once you have come to terms with your new mission in life, it is time to chuck out any alcohol left in the house as there won’t be any room for that in your new life.
Battle relapse by being strong willed. If your goal is clearly defined from the beginning, you will have less chance of allowing that goal to slip away. Know that if you give in and do relapse, you are not just cheating yourself out of dreams, but your loved ones also.
If you do fall off the band wagon you now it means you are doomed to another bar lifestyle with no real friends and no real future. You will be subjecting your family to a life of sadness and they are the only people that still love you in the whole wide world. You will be forcing your partner to earn more cash just so you can finance your addiction, so make the right decision while you still can.
Another obstacle when living a life based on alcohol are the problems that arise at work as it gets more and more difficult to hide and people will soon begin to notice your change in character. Believe me your days will be numbered and what are you going to do when you get fired? How are you going to support your family or are you more bothered about the alcohol? Sometimes this is the point when people realize that it’s time to give up, but why not avoid all that suffering if you can.
You will soon start to notice that even your best friends are suddenly not answering your calls and it has been known that school teachers notice an alcoholic in the family just by the way the children behave. You whole social status will take a turn for the worse and you will slowly feel isolated from everyone who once felt important in your life.
It is all a question of mind over matter when dealing with cutting alcohol out of your life. You need to change from just staring into a bottle to more meaningful activities such as sport. You could even dedicate more of your time to your children and get on with things that have been on the to do list for way too long. Even try doing a bit of housework or cooking which will not only help your partner but also keep your mind well away from thinking about alcohol.
