Have you ever made a significant change in your life that doesn’t affect anyone else negatively and been questioned about it? Last year, actually 466 days ago, I made the decision to stop drinking alcohol. My beverage of choice was red wine and I started having a problem because of stressful things coming up in my life. It was easier to pour another glass and fade away then think about everything on a nightly basis. It wasn’t long before I knew I needed to make a change, so I did. I joined a 21 day reset online and the rest is history. I’ve highlighted this entire journey here on my blog back in July and I have been so happy with my new, healthier life. Unfortunately a lot of people want to throw attitude at you and even push you to explain yourself and your teetotalling lifestyle. I have become used to this and it doesn’t faze me at all but I’m starting to hear from others on this journey that are having a real hard time with the peer pressure. When I hear about this it makes me so upset because people who judge others on their own choices are usually the ones who feel guilty about their own actions. In the 12 or more books I’ve read on this topic it’s always the same thing… people who become sober are the ones who get questioned relentlessly about it. Why is that? If true friends really cared about you, why would they act like this personal decision should become a debate? I’ve never understood this and I’ve lost friends over it. And after all of this time, 466 days, I’ve never questioned my decisions, or even missed that old, tired habit that I used to have. And I also don’t miss any of those people who dropped me like I had the plague. Not one of them. ~ If you are on your own personal journey and need a friendly ear, reach out to me. I’m always available to cheer you on!
Enjoy the day…. Jana
