Using Your Unique Talents & Gifts to Find the Motivation to Change Your Bad Habits

Let me ask you this – what talents and gifts were you born with? How many of them are you actually using? My guess is that if you were really using them the way you think they were intended to be used, you would be living a much more fulfilled life, and probably not turning to “bad habits” such as overindulging in alcohol to feel better. According to Brian Johnson from “Philosopher’s Notes,” our talents and gifts are our own unique genius. And I believe in order to feel truly complete, we need to use our genius in our daily [...]

Having Something to Look Forward To & Alcohol Control

You have to have something to look forward to. It involves hope and the positive expectation of something good or joyful to come. (Here’s another article on the topic in the Non-Consumer Advocate website). It’s why it’s so important to create goals and always be striving towards something better.  Way too often we get stuck in a rut and get complacent. Our situation may not be ideal…but we drink or eat or turn to other negative habits to cope with a less than fulfilled life. If you’re drinking too much in order to tolerate a mediocre life, I can’t stress [...]

So What is Moderate Drinking Anyway?

If you’re reading this blog, it’s probably because you or a loved one drinks more than they think they should….maybe even a lot more. And if you have a problem with alcohol, usually you just want to be able to “drink like a normal person” – whatever that is. We usually don’t want to give up drinking entirely, and we sure as heck don’t want a negative label such as “alcoholic.” I became aware of the concept of moderate drinking about 8 years ago when I heard about it on the news. As an ex-AA member, I couldn’t help but [...]

What Void Are You Trying to Fill by Drinking Too Much or Eating Too Much?

When you’re reaching for that bag of chips or popping open that “cold one,” do you ever stop to ask yourself what void you’re trying to fill? Next time you blindly start to indulge (or overindulge) in your “escape” of choice, ask yourself what hole you’re trying to fill up by using food or alcohol…or whatever your vice may be. You may be surprised…and it may be easier to fix than you think.  It could be that you are hungry, but reaching for numbing liquid to satisfy the feeling. Or you could be thirsty, but instead of getting a big [...]

Find Your Passion & You’ll Find Your Motivation to Control Your Drinking

Do you want to know the first step to really getting control of your drinking or bad habits? It’s finding your passion.  Ok..so before you roll your eyes and click the X to close this blog, listen to me just a little further. By all statistics, opinions of addiction gurus, 12-step’ers, etc., I am an alcoholic and can never drink or else it will turn into a binge and I will drink uncontrollably. After all, if you don’t know my story, you can read it here, but basically I was programmed to self-destruct.  One minute I was President of Student [...]

Study Shows Drinking for Emotions Leads to Addiction

I know it’s easier said than done, but a new study further supports the notion that turning to alcohol in order to deal with negative emotions can be risky business.  “Oh really?” you say sarcastically…  Well a recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Psychiatry titled “Using alcohol to self-medicate increases addiction risk” confirms what we already know…that drinking in order to self-medicate increases the risk of addiction. So if you are used to drinking because you feel sad, anxious, lonely, angry, etc….or if you are stuck in a negative situation and you continue to drink [...]

Getting Control of Your Drinking – Focusing on the Solution

Do you remember the stereogram craze from about a decade ago or so where there was a hidden 3-D image embedded in the 2-D picture and you had to just sort of let your eyes go out of focus in order to see the hidden 3-D image? You basically had to stop focusing on what was in front of you and let the other image emerge. The more you relaxed, the more the hidden image would come into focus. I created this stereogram on easystereogrambuilder.com just for fun in order to illustrate this point. The 2-dimensional image is a bunch [...]

How Committed are You – REALLY – to Controlling Your Drinking?

If you are reading this blog, it's probably because you have told yourself that you’re tired of drinking – tired of feeling hung-over - or tired of having your friends or loved ones nagging you all the time. Maybe you’ve even been confronted by your boss or your doctor about your drinking. But until you really decide to do whatever it takes to get control of your drinking, it’s really just another “good idea.” So let me ask you right now, how committed are you – REALLY – to getting control of your drinking? You’ll know because you’ll feel it [...]
