This cracked me up. Then I thought more about when I was drinking, even an unanswered text could send my anxiety into overdrive. Had I offended them? Said something wrong? Disappointed them in some way? Most of these fears I had were irrational and induced by alcohol. Since getting sober my anxiety has improved SO much. I thought for sure the opposite would be true. I thought alcohol was helping me cope with the anxiety I felt, but it was actually making it so much worse. Iโ€™m grateful to have a clearer head and the ability to recognize that now. ๐Ÿ’ก

Donโ€™t leave before the miracle happens โœŒ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ˜€

The great thing in this world is not so much where you stand, as in what direction you are moving.

For many people getting sober is tough, it is not easy. I tried countless times to get sober and know what it is like. It took determination and strength to finally get sober. Now that I am sober, I do feel like I am on top of the world.

...Treatment should also be both integrative and comprehensive, meaning that virtually every needed service can be offered under one cooperative โ€œumbrellaโ€. Medical doctors, mental health professionals, nutritionists, specialized therapists, and every other member of the treatment teamโ€”from the interventionist to the aftercare staffโ€”should be working as one unit.

Did you wake up free today? Freedom from alcohol, food addiction, or drugs? The best reason to quit drinking alcohol is how remarkably refreshed you will feel the morning after not drinking. You immediately begin to think more clearly and deeply, and your body feels invigorated with natural energy.You simply FEEL better and LOOK better in the morning when you havenโ€™t drank alcohol the night before. Itโ€™s a automatic anti-aging, immune boost for you system as well as saving you from fatal health complications and DUI! Saving you pain, agony, and financial damages. If that isnโ€™t enough then your addiction has a self destructive nature and you will be on a highway heading nowhere. Eventually it will catch up with you. If the thought has ever occurred to you โ€œmaybe I should stop drinkingโ€, then that is it and itโ€™s your subconscious trying to reach out to you! Take the first step and say โ€œ yes, I will stop drinkingโ€! Hypnosis is an amazing way to help you cope with cravings and pain relief #soberupbuttercup #suckitup #alcoholismrecovery #behonestwithyourself #soulsurgery #scottsdaleaz #addictionrecovery #clinicalhypnosis #hypnotherapy #hypnosishelps #stopdrinkingalcohol #liverfailure #kidneydiseaseawareness #opioidaddiction #drugaddiction #addictionfreepainrelief #soberliving #soberlifestyle

My dad reluctantly prayed this prayer 24 years ago today. I was only ten years old. It changed our lives. Thank goodness for #AlcoholicsAnonymous they saved my dadโ€™s life. .

*Plot spoiler*
Last night, we went to see ๐ŸŒŸA Star is Born๐ŸŒŸ...and boy, did it make an impact. Aside from how beautifully we thought it was shot (and major props to first time director, Bradley Cooper), the heart-wrenching storyline of alcoholism & childhood trauma, woven into this movie, was particularly poignant for us. Having all been deeply affected by addiction, either our own or a loved oneโ€™s, watching such a crippling addiction presented on the big screen really made us appreciate how far weโ€™ve come on our own journeys; all that weโ€™ve achieved through Edit Sweet & the exciting new projects weโ€™re working on to support others in their recovery. So, todayโ€™s #tuesdaymotivation is definitely this. โ˜๏ธ

This is one of the most important essays Iโ€™ve written, especially about #recovery and the #soberlife. I was reminded of it this weekend when talking about my anxiety and how it related to my alcoholism during my โ€œSaturday Scariesโ€ takeover for @thetemper.
Hereโ€™s the truth: My ambition, anxiety and alcoholism didnโ€™t get along. My ambition and anxiety fueled one another until it got to the point that the only way I could quiet them was with alcohol. I didnโ€™t know I had anxiety at the time and I didnโ€™t know that there was something ELSE that I could do besides get black-out drunk to โ€œturn off my brain .โ€
Since I quit drinking, Iโ€™ve had to deal with my mental health and every day is a journey in improving it and doing whatโ€™s best for me. Itโ€™s sometimes difficult, sometimes easier. Iโ€™ve learned strategies for taking care of my anxiety and sometimes have to re-learn them. Itโ€™s hard to put some of them into practice and Iโ€™ll admit that I sometimes lean on emotional eating as a coping mechanism โ€” which as far as Iโ€™m concerned, isnโ€™t any better than using alcohol as a coping mechanism. But Iโ€™m learning and Iโ€™m growing and Iโ€™m moving forward *without* alcohol.
Probably one of the worst things I heard back then was the whole โ€œyou deserve a drink after a long dayโ€ thing... Well, we donโ€™t. We deserve better working conditions, more work/life balance, treatment for mental health... but we do not โ€œdeserveโ€ alcohol as a โ€œtreatโ€ for overworking ourselves. Itโ€™s precisely this kind of thinking that led to my ambition and anxiety going into overdrive and ultimately costing me my dream job. It wasnโ€™t just that I was an addict, it was that I was hearing the wrong message.
Read more about how my ambition, anxiety, and alcoholism affected my life โ€” and how I eventually got out of this cycle and sought help. #linkinbio #linkinprofile .
