I’m reading “Unhooked, How to Quit Anything” by Woolverton and Shapiro and thought I’d share my favorite bit so far.
When you banish a toxic habit from your life, you are making room for something beautiful to take its place.
I love this! It affirms that sobriety is a life improvement and gives you something to look forward to – something beautiful!
I also love the power behind the word banish. Not quit or give up – those sound like losses. Instead – banish! Banish is what you do to someone who won’t behave in society. You chase them away.
I am banishing a toxic habit from my life in order to make room for something beautiful. The next time someone asks me why I’m not drinking, that’s what I’m going to say! 🙂
I’m also banishing Wolfie, The Voice, And the Wine Witch. They have all been behaving quite badly.
Happy sober day to you all,
Jen without wine (because it’s been banished)
