Another New Years’ Eve has come and gone and today is the first day of the rest of your life. According to the polling firm Marist, more than 40 percent of Americans make New Year’s resolutions each year, but less than 8 percent are successful in keeping or achieving them. If you are guilty of being a repeat offender in not following through on your “New Year, New You” resolutions; this year you can change the routine.
It Starts With a Deeper Look Inside You
It never fails you make the vow to make a change and you start out on the path, but after a few months (or weeks) your determination fizzles out and you spend the next eleven months – or 50 weeks – beating yourself up. Psychologists say that you need to find out what happens that gets in the way of accomplishing your goals. Instead of making an announcement to your Facebook page your intentions for the year, take a deeper look at your goals and your reasons for the particular goal. Make sure that you are setting realistic goals. Instead of self-flagellation for not meeting the goal, try a non-judgmental approach.
Saying Good-bye to Substance Abuse
If your goal is to stop using drugs and alcohol, consider taking it in baby steps. One reason why many people are not successful in quitting their substance abuse is because when they quit using, they begin to experience withdrawal symptoms that are so painful, they return to drugs and/or alcohol to find relief. It may be that you need to enter detox treatment to remove the toxins from drug and alcohol use from your body. Detoxification is a cleansing of the body – or a renewal. Once the detox process is complete, it is a good idea to reinforce your commitment to sobriety by entering a rehab program to learn how to enjoy life without the use of drugs and/or alcohol. Many find that seeking behavioral therapy or participating in a community support group or program is very beneficial in keeping them on the recovery path and helps them avoid relapse.
