Nurse Reveals 5 Greatest Regrets on the Deathbed & Why You Must Quit Drinking

Nurse Reveals 5 Greatest Regrets on the Deathbed & Why You Must Quit Drinking

What will be your greatest regret be when you are on your deathbed looking back on your life? Well if you don’t quit drinking (eventually) I am sure that will be one of them, but certainly not the only one.

Recently a friend of mine sent me a great article where a nurse answers addresses this important question, which I will come back to in a minute.

This article reminded me of another event that happened almost exactly a year ago. I was at my Grandmother’s funeral, the service had just ended and about 30 of us were standing around the grave paying our respects.

As I was standing there contemplating life and death I heard this crackling noise and felt the earth start trembling below my feet. Before I had time to comprehend what was going on, or even consider moving from my position, a 100 foot tree uprooted and came crashing down right next to all of us.

If that tree fell just 10 feet the other direction there is no telling how many people would have been killed or severely injured, including myself. Here is a picture I took with my phone. On the right side of the picture you can see the enormous root system sticking up.

5 Greatest Deathbed Regrets

In that moment I was reminded how precious life is and how quickly it can be taken away. I think back on that event quite frequently when I am struggling with meaningless problems at work or with family and friends. Whenever I am really frustrated I like to remind myself that in the big scheme of things most issues that come up are really just not important.

A majority of visitors to my site are looking for answers to how to quit drinking or overcome other addictions so I wanted to share this article. It is full of wisdom and really puts things into perspective.

Take a look at the list and ask yourself how many of these would be true today for you. Also if you are still drinking ask yourself if drinking makes these more or less likely to happen in your life.

Nurse Reveals 5 Greatest Regrets on the Deathbed & Why You Must Quit Drinking

From my perspective at least 4 of these 5 regrets will be true for you on your deathbed if you don’t remove excessive drinking from your life. But perhaps a greater concern how soon this event will come if you are not able to quit drinking.

I was coaching someone earlier this month and he shared with me that over the last year 2 of his friends lost their lives from asphyxiation when passed out drunk. Sadly this is not an uncommon occurrence.

One of the takeaways from this article that I always work with people on is closing your eyes and basically fast forwarding your life.

If you keep drinking or abusing drugs what will your life look like in 1, 3, 5 and 10 years out? Will you still be alive? Will you have taken a chance at fulfilling some of those life long dreams? Will you be a good role model to your loved ones?

But if you were to quit drinking what would happen? What would you do with that extra time? How much older would you live to? What dreams would you actually try to fulfill?

When you are honest with this process it usually does a great job at setting the stage for sobriety.

The quote at the end of this article captures it best.

Life is a choice. It is YOUR life. Choose consciously, choose wisely, choose honestly. Choose happiness.

The only thing I would add is choose sobriety and choose to find and follow your life purpose and happiness will follow.

Your Sobriety Coach, Dave Andrews
