Dealing with emotions Alcohol Free

My Year No Beer (Week 5)

This week I reflect how dealing with emotions alcohol free forces you to discover healthier coping strategies to process and deal with the emotions instead of using alcohol to numb feeling negative emotions. I have to become more emotionally resilient.

The one thing I always remember is however bad things feel at any moment in time, life is transient and you won’t always feel that way.

By sitting with, accepting their presence and processing the emotions, I find they are much easier to let go off and since I’ve not drunk I don’t have those emotions exasperated by any effects from alcohol.

I believe when you become alcohol free you are forced to become better equipped and resilient when dealing with your emotions.
