What’s the difference between willpower and sober supports? Well, the difference is night and day. To me, willpower is too much like white-knuckling ...
If you think that willpower is required for being sober, you’re probably closer to day 1 than further along. To me, willpower is thinking: “I’m not doing it, I’m not doing it.” In this audio we talk about how to look away from the temptation, put strategies in place, and make it more likely that you’ll be successful.
It’s hard to ‘hold your breath and wait for it to be over.’ It’s easier to put bring in external tools and supports.
This audio was recorded with a live audience and the unedited version is the one you must listen to. At the end there are two stories that are not in the edited version. There's a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff that's particularly useful in this episode.
