Today I wanted to talk a bit about an obstacle that many find either thrust into their path by their partners, family, or friends or one that they place in their own way of being happy and happy in a relationship; drugs and alcohol.
One of the best sayings I’ve ever come across is “Everything in moderation”. which is a simple statement with a heavy hammer of a message. You can do just about anything in life as long as you do not become obsessed with it. It’s when something becomes so important that you MUST do it that it becomes an issue.
You feel the way you think. When you add alcohol or drugs, you lose the ability to control your thoughts, and thus your emotional state. That can be fun once in a while, but is a real problem when it becomes the norm instead of the exception.
If our goals are to be in a happy and healthy relationship and be happy in life, we simply must make the decision to stay away from obstacles to those goals. Abusing drugs and alcohol are obstacles. If you are placing your need to do them above your need to be in a happy relationship or live a happy life, then you have only yourself to answer to. Don’t complain when you find out that abusing drugs and/or alcohol isn’t compatible to having a successful relationship or life. It’s obvious to the rest of us.
