Do you find yourself see-sawing back and forth in your addiction and sobriety? How deeply committed to achieving long-term sobriety are you? If you give yourself a way out, your mind will find it, exploit it, and get you into a loop of Day One’s until you seriously commit.
Are you interested in OR committed to your sobriety and recovery?
Your level of commitment to yourself when you step into sobriety is going to determine your resiliency significantly when your mind plays games with you and uses its cunning and mental gymnastics to pull you back into behaviors you have already decided you are sick and tired of having in your life. Being sober curious is dabbling, and being interested is slightly more into it, but gathering up your momentum into passion is the throttling into the commitment that’ll fuel you during those darker times when the 50/50 of life seems compelling enough to dive you back into that which no longer serves you.
