Ep. 244, Easier Not Better
One of my amazing clients shared that she turned to her journal when she was having some chatter instead of pouring wine.
She wrote it would have been easier but not BETTER.
And I couldn't agree more.
We are programmed for easy.
But easy isn't better for most things.
Our society wants now, fast, and cheap, and if we don't get things now fast and cheap, we don't like it.
But the growth that needs to happen when you change your relationship with alcohol is a process that takes time and concentrated effort so that it can be EASY after you have established new patterns and behaviors.
Be willing for it to take some time.
Easier is definitely not Better in this case.
