I used to question my decision to quit drinking all the time.
When I was hungover, I’d feel so motivated for a few hours, or maybe even a few days. Sometimes I’d stop for several weeks.
But then the doubts would creep in.
I’d start to wonder whether I really needed to stop. Would it even be worth it?
When you’re questioning your decision to quit, managing your mind becomes really important.
This video is all about what to focus on when you’re on the verge of giving up.
Doubting your decision to quit
Most of us accidentally give a lot of energy to our doubts and fears. They become the soundtrack to our lives. Change is hard when our focus is always on why this won’t work and whether it’ll be worth it.
Switching your focus
A belief is just a thought you’ve practised over and over again. You can choose to continue practising the old, unhelpful thoughts that have you constantly doubting your decision to quit… or you can consciously put your attention on something else.

See which ones resonate with you the most and then write them down. Put them on sticky notes, on your phone screensaver, or set them as reminders to pop up at different times of day. Make sure you see them often!
You can go to bed tired because you’ve spent the day recovering from a hangover and questioning your decision to quit drinking. Or you can go to bed tired because you’ve been practising some different thoughts and trying out a more empowering set of beliefs.
