Gray had a long history of drinking that started at a young age. She believed alcohol was cool and grown-up. Over time, her drinking habits worsened, leading to blackouts and increased consumption.
The Turning Point
Gray’s turning point came when she realized how often she was buying alcohol during the COVID-19 pandemic. She would make weekly runs to replenish her supply and planned her meals based on what mixers she had available.
The Decision to Stop
Gray had attempted to quit drinking twice before, but it never lasted. However, after a night of excessive drinking, she knew it was time for a change. She wanted to take control of her life and stop drinking for good.
The Journey to Sobriety
Gray’s niece recommended a book called This Naked Mind, which she found extremely helpful. The book provided her with insights into the subconscious triggers that create a desire for alcohol. She began to understand the negative effects of alcohol and how it had been affecting her life.
Freedom from Alcohol
With the help of the book, Gray has found the freedom to live her life without alcohol. She no longer wakes up with a dry mouth or a desire for a drink. She is grateful for the lessons she learned and feels happy to be getting drunk on life instead.
Alcohol can be insidious and pervasive, and it can be challenging to quit. However, Gray’s story shows that with the right mindset and support, it is possible to break free from the addiction and start living life to the fullest.
Getting drunk on life
There’s a lot that must be accomplished to shake up the world and get it out from “below the affect”. Alcohol is insidious, pervasive, and adored. I don’t want it anymore, and with the teachings of This Bare Thoughts, I can resist wanting it. As for me, I’m getting drunk on life nowadays. I can see clearly now, as you understand! Brilliant sunshiney days forward.
