Because we are living in a time where most things come to us almost instantly, we want to give up or quit on things which take the time, energy and effort of learning and practicing until we get the result we want.
The truth is alcohol, for most people did not instantly gain control in our life. This reversal of control happens gradually over time. The ability to gain control back will take learning and practice doing things differently. This is where the skill of decision making and constraint come into play.
Up until now, we trained our brains to expect alcohol. So urges and the desire for a drink are going to be like second nature for us. The main obstacle experienced on this transformation flight is your primitive brain.
My hunch is many of you who decided to take action upon what I shared last week and make a drink plan of some sort experienced so push back from your brain.
This week I'm sharing some hacks to help you be able to decide to put the skills into practice easily.
