Living in the Depths of Despair

Updated: Jul 30, 2020

In my opinion, one of the worst spaces to be in mentally is when you feel like there is no light at the end of the tunnel and you'll never be able to control your drinking. 

Your life may be pretty amazing and you're functioning at high levels throughout the day but come the end of the day you find yourself right back to drinking and looking for relief in a drink (or 2 or 3).

You just want to have a life where alcohol is not the "solution" to feeling better because right now alcohol is creating more pain and discomfort and is not working for you anymore.

You might think that you'll never find an answer and your drinking habits are never going to change. 

I'd like to offer to you that thinking such large over arching thoughts like, "I'll never get this under control" or "What's wrong with me and why can't I change and get control", are too big for your brain to answer and that's why you're stuck. 

Start the change by looking for all of the little seemingly harmless thoughts that percolate in your brain throughout your day. 

Ask your self smaller questions that your brain can can search for answers. 

  • "What thought was I thinking right before I opened the bottle to have a drink?"

  • "What happened to me today that made me feel like having a drink?"

  • "What seemed like too much to handle today that made me think a drink would help relieve the uncomfortable feeling?"

Big questions that seem overwhelming will only keep you where you are.

Small questions will help you see the pattern in your thinking that keep you in a drinking cycle. When you ask smaller questions your brain has an easier time finding the answers.
