Welcome to day 10 or my 30 days to sobriety.
One third of the way there, double digits, yippee!
Todays home work was about connecting with your core values. I could whip through this as its a thing I do/teach etc …. but like the builder with a house falling down, honouring my values is not always on track.
I was tasked specifically with considered how my core values were breached by drinking.
Clearly my value of health is not held up by my drinking, nor my values of peace/contemplation/ meaning …. that stuff after a bottle of Chardonnay, is never going end well.
Then there is all my wonder/awe/aesthetic thing … glass of wine on a vineyard in the Napa valley anyone? See here is that thing again where moderate drinking supports lots of good stuff (I know I sound like a proper alco now). The trick is moderation, because again a bottle of wine later does not make the vineyard sparkle more huh?
See you tomorrow, go well (and alone with your values).
