hi Moon, if you were with a group of friends, say at a party and someone
offered you a drink, the temptation would be so high for you to 'have
just one drink', as they say
'it won't hurt you, look at how you are feeling, you feel like crap so
one drink will help you, you know that, so come on and have a sip', the
urge would be so high, 'will I or won't' but you are forgetting about
what one drink will do, it will take you back to square one where the
alcohol will take control of you, so your plight to stop drinking has
Unfortunately all our problems will always be with us,
pay bills, don't have enough money to pay for rent or groceries but what
about buying milk, 'I need milk for coffee and hate drinking it without
milk', so these are what will tempt you back to alcohol because then I
won't need milk when I drink.
You have to look at the future, not now
because that's easy, but what will happen to you over the next 10 years
if you continue to drink, because your problems will still be there,
but you might need someone else to control your finances because the
grog has caused you to have a medical condition that will stop you from
functioning, I'm sorry for pointing this out, but that's what my doctor
always told me when I was drinking, everytime I saw him.
temptation can always be there, on any day whether it's a celebration
or when you are sad, but to be strong enough to say NO on everytime is then a fantastic achievement.
I think that you are very capable to have this strength, because you have the want to say NO.
It would lovely to hear back from you. Geoff. x
