Using Alcohol for Stress Reduction
Most bars and taverns are at their fullest during the hours of 3-8; basically, after work. Itā??s a proven fact that many people use alcohol as a way of unwinding after a long day.
When I first quit drinking many of my friends were in disbelief. I was often asked ā??How can you relax without alcohol?ā?
It surprised me that people couldnā??t conceive of enjoying themselves without the involvement of alcohol.
Itā??s a common misconception that there is only one way to achieve a particular desired effect. For example if you want to get fit and healthy, how many different ways are there of achieving this goal?
Think of a few – yoga, jogging, weight training, aerobics, martial arts, rollerblading, soccer, gymnastics, hockey, etc.
There are a variety of options available and you undoubtedly will need a combination of these to achieve the desired goal. Still, for the sake of argument, letā??s say you relied on only one way of getting fit e.g. jogging.
If jogging was your only way to become fit what would you do if you were injured, if you got bored of it, or it becomes too cold?
