Don’t make the same mistake I did.

When I tried to stop drinking in the past, I could only face taking on a month-long challenge, and that felt almost impossible.

I was so focused on what I was giving up, I couldn’t stop thinking about drinking.

I was counting down the days to the end of the challenge, when I could celebrate with a drink.

Whatever good work I’d done for my body for the duration of the challenge was drowned the moment I was out of it.

If you really believe that the sober you is a happier, healthier you, then why wouldn’t you want that to be permanent?
