When I used to plan quitting drinking, I’d think about that “one day at a time” motto. And by afternoon, I’d decide today’s not the day to start. Tomorrow for sure.
A day can feel really long when batting cravings, an obsession, or hard feelings.
One trick I used was to just find something to do for 5 minutes. And string sober time together like that.
Change is hard. Little strategies like this helped a lot.
