Right on @odaatclub I didn't get sober to just stop drinking and using drugs.
I got sober so that I could build the hell out of my life.
Drugs and alcohol led me to making poor life decisions therefore I had to eliminate the root cause.
The day I chose to go to treatment, I understood that drugs and alcohol were no longer an option and decided to figure out how to enjoy life from there on out.
I worked rigorously to change ALL of my habits and challenge ALL of my beliefs, no questions asked.
If I was not willing to change everything, I was not going to change anything.
The reason why I don't struggle with my sobriety is because drugs and alcohol serve no purpose in my life.
What the hell is the point of drinking when it will take me back down again? It will delay my progress on life...it's pointless for me so why waste even a split second thinking about it?
Instead of drinking on a Friday night I could be spending my time on personal development, exercise, business creating, inventing, living, caring, making a difference!
Instead of dwelling on my past, I can be building my future.
This mindset was all created by consistently creating new habits.
People who lived with the mindset I wanted to have told me to read, exercise, eat healthy, challenge my beliefs, change my routines, meet new people, reach out of my comfort zone and take risks daily.
They told me that if I decided to only pick the things that I liked out of that list, I was going to fail.
I've experienced complacency in some of those areas and it became obvious that they were right!
I am far from where I want to be in life, but I am so far from the person I used to be.
I am happy.
I am grateful.
I am ready to rock this day, week, month, year, life!
