The first day of the year brings an opportunity for new beginnings and to decide to make a change in our lives.  While resolutions are made with the best of intentions, sticking to them can be difficult.  Quit drinking by using these tips:

  • Be selective about the places you go and the situations you put yourself in.  If you know that a certain place or situation is not conducive to your recovery, don’t go.  If you are someplace and realize that staying could jeopardize your decision to stay sober, leave.  It is okay to excuse yourself from a situation.
  • Learn what creates stress for you and develop coping skills to address it.  Cravings are often triggered by stressful situations, which can have extreme consequences.  There are ways to address stress that you may not have thought of before such as exercise, mediation, and yoga.  By controlling your stress you are able to control many of your cravings and remain headstrong in your quest to stay sober.
  • Find a support system.  It is helpful to have people around you who are supportive of your journey and can provide support when you need it.  You can find this support via meetings, online forums, or by sharing with friends and family members that you trust.  Support can make the difference in your success.
