How You Deal with Your Day Starts in The Morning – From The Addiction Treatment Specialists in Palm Beach.
“I just want to be humble at all times.” Mike Tyson
Because addictions are really attachments, we know that we need to do the following:
- Detach from One
- Replace it with something else
- Embrace the new attachment
- Reflect on what work and what didn’t
Without following this format, it makes things a lot harder. If you’re coming from a bad place, remember you don’t need to be there. Reaching out to someone you can trust is important and if you aren’t seeking the health care needed by a qualified professional, your path to recovery will be delayed.
You may not be in at the level where this information makes sense to you yet, but when you get there you may find this important to remember.
Detaching from your attachment or addiction is a difficult time. Even the strongest people undergo struggles, but there is a way to get help.
Be humble in the morning when you first wake up. Give yourself credit if you’ve made it through another night of being clean and working toward your goal to be free. Why not make your first re-attachment be Grace or Humility? Are you grateful for the help of someone recently? Did yesterday work out better than you thought? Did you have toilet paper? Be grateful for the things that are going your way, no matter how miniscule.
Believing in a higher power is a very effective choice for many individuals. Spiritual belief can be a strong re-attached when replacing addictions.
Once you’ve found a positive attachment to replace the old one, embrace it. Love it, hug it, grab a hold of it and don’t let go. Make it belong to you. Try to get a hobby like music or art. Some type of outlet for you that’s inspirational. Many of us feel that we need to take our world back, but many people think that this is the first time they’ve taken over their world, whoever you are, it’s time to fight that attachment and replace it with waking up in the morning and feeling humble, because you’re grateful for you.
