All around us people are celebrating the new year, and making resolutions and also breaking them almost faster than they made them. You have the chance to do something even bigger and better, though. You have a chance to change your life. Take this chance to start your new year right by beginning your recovery journey.
Time for Change
The new year is the perfect time to make a change in your life. No excuses. The calendar changes, and so do you. Procrastination is so 2019, out with the old habits and in with the new. You know you need help managing your substance use, so take this opportunity to start the new year with the new you. The old proverb, “There is no time like the present” has never been truer than at this moment. This year is a clean slate, ready and waiting for you to fill it with personal growth, progress, and triumphs rather than the regrets and self-loathing that so often accompanies substance abuse. Use January 2020 as your moment of truth, the date that you looked in the mirror and chose to do even more with your life.
More than a Resolution
Entering recovery is more than just a resolution. Recovery is a journey that you actively choose. You choose to strip yourself bare of old habits, address your “why” of substance use, then choose healing and growth. You have the opportunity of a lifetime, not just a second chance. You can face everything that has held you back – your past, your fears, your pain – and now you can look them in the eye and choose to free yourself from them and step into a life of empowerment. This is not just a resolution to break, a goal to be forgotten before February. This is your chance to seize your life and truly become the master of your own fate. Your recovery journey may not always be smooth, but it will always be yours exclusively, and you get to make all of the choices from here on out, rather than have substances dictate who you are and what you do. Whatever has held you back in the past, you now have the chance to smash the chains that have bound you and live with exhilarating freedom.
Holistic, Lasting Change
The best part of recovery is that it isn’t just about stopping drinking and using. It is a complete makeover - mentally, physically, and emotionally. It is never enough to simply stop using a substance, and it rarely works, anyway. Your recovery journey will be filled with opportunities to look at why you used substances in the first place, to heal from past trauma, and to learn new ways of thinking and build new habits for life that impact your mental, physical, and emotional health. You will get to learn new ways to breathe, move, and new ways to look at the world around you. You will get to learn new ways to look at yourself, too, with acceptance of all you have been, all you are, as well as control over what you will be. You get to learn better habits of sleeping,
