In this episode, I share practical tips to navigate a world filled with alcohol after quitting drinking.
Although it can be challenging to be surrounded by alcohol, especially in social settings, there are strategies to help. Rather than trying to avoid alcohol entirely, I’ve learned to accept its presence and focus on what I can control: my reactions and approach to situations involving alcohol.
Initially, I used to stress about saying no or explaining my choice to not drink anymore. Seeking advice from others in recovery, I received valuable tips which I share in this episode.
By accepting the presence of alcohol, preparing ahead, asserting my choices, building a support network, and prioritizing self-care, I’ve been able to navigate a world filled with alcohol successfully.
Remember, it’s about taking control of our own journey and making choices that align with our sobriety.
If you have ever asked any of the following questions this would be a good episode to listen to:
How can I be around alcohol after I get sober?
How to say no when someone offers you a drink?
How do I tell people I work with that I don’t drink?
