Addiction Doesn't Fill The Time. It Steals The Time.

The other day I gave a presentation to a class of students. It was my best one yet! I felt motivated, inspired and determined to perfect my craft!

I was excited about the possible opportunities that lie ahead. Excited that all my hard work might actually pay off.

However, I couldn’t help shake this feeling that something would prevent me from accomplishing my goals. I felt as if something was holding me back.

So, what was it?

Well, I’ve been struggling with alcohol for the past 7 years. I know how it started, but the reasons it’s continued is a different answer.

We reach a point in life where we can no longer blame our tragedies and life experiences on our addiction, bad habits or reasons for self sabotage.

There are things that wreak havoc on our minds and soul. It’s our responsibility to recognize it and make a change.

If we talk ourselves out of everything, then everything will stay the same.

We can’t achieve anything without a healthy mind, and we cant achieve anything without the help from others.

Giving up something is scary because it has become such a huge part of your life. It’s easy to develop a habit, but it’s harder to break.

As scary and bored I might become without alcohol, I remind myself of all the things I can do with that time…I might just save the world! HA!
