Are There Any Places That Tempt Me to Drink? What to Do About It?
Today's video is based around a question from YouTube: are there any places that tempt me to drink?
The thing is, no matter what habits you are trying to quit, most of the behaviour is controlled by subconscious mechanisms.
So, it's your job in the early days to bring those parts of your behaviour to the surface where you can deal with them.
This is not as difficult as it sounds. Your mind is going to do most of the work for you. This comes in the form of cravings and temptations.
There will be so many reminders of alcohol around you because of the nature of your habit. But that's all they are, reminders. Temptations and cravings are the labels that we give to these reminders that prompt us to do the behaviour.
Your conscious mind is fighting against it. Your subconscious mind is trying to get you to do it. It's as simple as that.
The solution, the perfect solution, is that your habit is built on repetition… It's also broken down through repetition. The more refuse to indulge in the habit, the less power it has of you, the less temptation craving you will feel.
I hope you enjoy the video :-)
