HonestJoy: “Belle, we touched on this in our coaching call (which I really appreciated and enjoyed the mini therapy:), by the way)…
Why am I emailing you every 4 hours? Because you recommended it, and I want to stop, and what I’ve been doing before obviously didn’t work. I want to give myself every chance to succeed. It’s a small thing, and easy, why would I be against it? Its not like you are asking me to wear a sign that says “I drink more than I want.” I decided to trust you.
Why is this working for me? I want to stop drinking. It’s a reminder to myself that I want to stop. It helps to reach out to someone outside myself and to hear back from you. It works with a bunch of other small things that add up.
Why don’t other people do it if it works? I can’t really know, but I think my unwillingness to do even simple things is partly laziness, and partly anger that I have this problem that might actually take some work to resolve. I might have to accept I’m not perfect and don’t know it all, that the way I’ve been doing things my whole life needs some adjusting in order for my life to continue “working” in a good way. What worked before doesn’t work now. So I have to change. I don’t (didn’t) want to. Thank you! honestjoy”
