Here at the DUI Foundation, we’re excited to partner with Carrie Armstrong, with the How To Be A Sober Girl blog. You can check out her blog here. Over the next thirty days, she has committed to a How To Be A Sober Girl 30 Day Kickstart campaign and we’ll be sharing her stories right here.
And without any more time, here’s Day Thirteen:
To shock our brain into new ways of thinking, there needs to be as much change of routine as possible when we stop or cut down on drinking. Old routines are one of the biggest obstacle anyone can face. Habit is the destroyer of new intention.
Today I would like you to research something new to try in the coming week. It can be an exercise class or a night class. A new restaurant to go eat in or a film genre you’ve never taken an interest in before at a cinema you’ve never visited. But it has to be a face to face real life encounter. Not online and not in your own home.
It can be meeting someone for coffee you’ve never been out with socially before. Making a new friend. Going to a party or social gathering that the old you would have said no to. You only have to do it once. Bu you do have to do it and i must be done before next weekend.
It’s really important you make this a priority and give it a go. I can’t emphasize this enough. Sobriety is not an adjective. It’s a verb. So go do it.
