I will quit drinking tomorrow….
Tomorrow is going to be THE DAY!
Can anyone relate? Every single day I would say:
I will quit tomorrow!
Tomorrow never came…..
The obsession would set in and I would drink.
Just like Dory… I would forget and get distracted by that shiny, pretty bottle and I would drink it.
I would forget the pain that alcohol inflicted on my life – both emotionally and physically.
I was stuck in a vicious cycle that I did not know how to get out of.
Today, instead of embracing my ability “Dory like” ability of forgetting the consequences,
I choose to embrace her motto of: “Just Keep Swimming”.
I have broken that brutal cycle and turned my attention away from the shiny object and towards moving forward with my life, without alcohol.
