The First Step: Make a Decision

deciding to stop drinking - Reset My Future

If you find yourself scrolling through sober blogs, chances are you're swimming in a sea of information, maybe feeling a tad overwhelmed about what change really means and what a new future could look like. It's a lot, isn't it? Facing the prospect of altering your relationship with substances can conjure up a whirlwind of thoughts about what's next.

Here's a gentle nudge: you don't need to leap into a completely transformed future today. The only thing on your to-do list right now? Get real with yourself about where you stand and decide whether change is something you need or want.

Decoding the Overwhelm

Acknowledging that you're even considering a change is huge. It means you're aware, maybe for the first time, that the path you're on might not be where you want to end up. It's normal to feel like the idea of change is a mountain too steep to climb. But every journey starts with a single step, and in this case, it's making a decision.

Facing the Facts

The hardest conversations are often the ones we have with ourselves. Admitting that your substance use might not be serving you well anymore is challenging. It's like turning on a light in a room that's been dark for a while—suddenly, you see everything for what it is. But in that clarity, there's also hope. This is your chance to look your situation square in the eyes and say, "Okay, what's really going on here?"

The Role of Honesty

Honesty is your best friend on this journey. It's about acknowledging the good, the bad, and everything in between. How has substance use impacted your life? What are the good things you're missing out on? What are the not-so-great things that keep happening? Getting clear on these points can help you understand what you're really deciding about.

You're in the Driver's Seat

Making a decision to change is empowering because it means you're taking control. You're the one in the driver's seat, deciding which road to take next. And remember, deciding to change doesn't mean you need to have all the answers right now. It just means you're open to finding them.

Lean on Support

Contemplating this kind of decision can feel lonely, but it doesn't have to be. Whether it's friends, family, or a professional, having a support system can make all the difference. They can offer perspectives and encouragement that light the way forward.

Taking That First Step

So, here you are, at the crossroads, contemplating a significant shift. Remember, all you need to do today is make a decision. Do you want to explore what change could look like for you? If the answer is yes, that's all the commitment you need to make right now.
