Have you ever stayed in a relationship that you knew didn’t serve you but it was easier than dealing with a break-up? My sis and I have. More often than I’d care to admit. It was the same with alcohol before we quit. It never treated us the way we deserved to be treated. Our intuitions screamed at us to just be DONE. Our friends and family hated it. We’d lie about what we were doing and where we were going just to get them off our backs. We’d make a final decision to dump it and break our promises to ourselves. Over and over and over again. It’s not easy to say goodbye to anything or anyone that you’ve spent a lot of days, weeks, and months with. It’ll try to come crawling back. When it does, remember this. Anytime we tried to get back together after a break-up (with a person or alcohol) it ended worse than the original break-up. If it’s not good for you, you already know it. We’re all too bada$s for anyone or anything to dim our sparkle. Happy Saturday, sober family! Keep it simple today.
