The 3 D’s of Drinking

What are the three of the most important areas or aspects of your life? Do you know? And more importantly does drinking or drugs have an impact in those areas of your life?

When you talk to many people about what keeps them up at night, there are many answers, but I find there are 3 that often rise to the top of most lists.

  • Marriage/Relationships – A core need for all of us is to connect/love others.
  • Finances – Money might not make you happy, but it certainly can remove many challenges from your life.
  • Health – When you are not healthy nothing else matters. Do you remember the last time you were really sick. You might recall that it was even hard to enjoy TV.

So what does this have to do with the 3 D’s of Drinking & Drugs.  Pretty simple actually.

  • Divorce – Marriage is one of the greatest relationship commitments you make in your life, outside of having children. How has drinking or addiction affected your relationships?
  • Debt – Most Americans have debt, and many have a lot of debt. Has your drinking or drug use affected the amount of debt you have?
  • Doctors – Health concerns are rampant, and in America we are plagued by obesity, cancer and heart disease. Does your drinking or drug abuse affect your health?

Why to stop drinking

The simple and undeniable truth is that over time excessive drinking and/or drug use is going to affect 1 or all 3 of these. It only takes stepping into 1 Alcoholics Anonymous meeting to hear countless stories of loss that was a direct result of alcoholic drinking.

My story was much the same, but thankfully I was able to stop before it was too late. But how did my drinking impact these areas of my life?

  • Divorce – My wife had contacted a divorce lawyer and had all but given up on us.
  • Debt – I estimate that my drinking cost me somewhere in the neighborhood of 300,000 dollars. If you want to read more on the math I did to come to this visit my blog on that here.
  • Doctors – My doctors told me on several occasions that my blood work was a significant concern and a liver biopsy might be necessary. I also was told I had an enlarged heart and got an echocardiogram, which I found out later was also related to my drinking.

The good news is I kept my wife and kids. My health has COMPLETELY rebounded. And my finances are back on track.

Usually the damage you have created can be reversed if you commit to making a change, but doing so without help is hard. This is why I founded this site, and The 30-Day Sobriety Solution.  Don’t wait to get started as it only gets worse – trust me. Share your thoughts in the comment section below – I would love to hear what you think!

Here’s to your success thriving in sobriety!

Your Sobriety Coach, Dave Andrews

    boca y limpiar los restos que quedaban en sus dedos, nunca había probado el
    semen, he de reconocer que me encantó, devoraba la mano, chupaba
    los dedos uno a uno tal y como si fuesen pequeños falos, incluso hacía ruiditos mientras chupaba, esos ruiditos que tanto me excitaban cuando era el que recibe una felación. Mi polla
    no menguaba, seguía alta desafiando la gravedad. http://forum.covecube.com//profile/curtisvinter77
