Learn to Value Yourself


 

"Let alcohol in, and often, procrastination follows. If you want to shut the door, then learn to value yourself. Then you will value your time. Do that and procrastination can't get in." Lee Davy

 

In 'The Road Less Travelled' by Scott Peck, he writes about the importance of learning to value yourself and the compounding effect, if you don't.

There are some things we should think about that relate to alcohol.

Learning to accept that we are valuable is the cornerstone of self-discipline. We need the self-discipline to delay gratification.

I WANT A DRINK, AND I MUST HAVE IT NOW!

We learn these skills when we are children, and our parents are our teachers. If alcohol has a grip on you, then you're not going to be teaching your children to value themselves, in addition to showing them that it's acceptable to drink a drug and a poison that kills 3.3m people per year. 

Make the 1000 days sober journey about you and much bigger than you.
