If you’ve ever spent time in the world of yoga, you’ll know that even the most expert yoga master comes to the mat to “practice”.
Teachers often remind us that we need to allow ourselves to be exactly where we are in our practice and that, that will differ from day to day, from position to position. I have heard it said that even if you just lie on your mat and breathe you are still practicing yoga. It is in the honouring of ourselves and our journey that we find what we need.
The idea of practice rather than mastery has always felt quite liberating to me and I have applied it to as many areas of my life as possible. Particularly around sobriety.
Words like “never” and “forever” feel mighty daunting to me. But the idea of practicing brought that terror into a more manageable perspective.
So I began to practice. I practiced spending Saturdays sober. Practiced weekends away without alcohol and found that I quite enjoyed them. Practiced not drinking when everyone else was. Always reminding myself - this doesn’t have to be every time, it’s just this time. Just for now. Just to get in some practice.
Eventually when I would return to sobriety after a period away, I would be able to draw on all of that practice and it was almost as if I had strengthened a muscle. My sobriety muscle if you will.
A question people often ask me is how do I begin? My advice would be - practice. Show up and breath. The rest will sort itself out.
I hope you are all doing well, wherever you are in your practice.
Thanks for having us @bbcbreakfast . It was a privilege to discuss Hooked and the ‘sober Christmas’ challenges to the masses this morning. 🎄
It’s wonderful to see and hear more and more conversations about addiction and recovery taking place in the public eye. We aren’t here to be the fun police - you do you huns...We’re just an alcoholic and an addict trying to do our little bit to raise awareness around what can be an emotional/stressful/busy and drink focused time of year. ❤️
The disease of Addiction will use Depression, Anxiety, Adhd and other forms of Mental Illness to fuel the desire to drink or use. The false promise the disease offers is relief from the pressure and discomfort of other illnesses. We know better. Drinking or using to cope with pain and fear is how most of us came to develop Addictions.
On 1/7/18 I decided that it was time for a change. I remember telling myself that I was going to try and go 30 days without alcohol. 730 days later I am still taking it #onedayatatime and today I am proud to celebrate 2 years being #alcoholfree. I can say without a doubt that it has been the best 2 years of my life both personally and professionally and absolutely the most memorable 😂. #sober#soberlife#RecoveryPosse

Hi I'm Mark and I struggle with an addiction to alcohol. After relapsing for two months I am currently two and half days sober and have woken back up from my self destructive slumber.
This has been the biggest challenge of my life. My current relapse has shown me who I am when I drink and how it effects the ones i love around me.
I have done things that I am not proud of and it brought a lot of shame. All I know is that I am not the same person when I'm drinking or using drugs.
Writing this is incredibly difficult but I know that I need to share my story to relate to others, create a sense of belonging and take accountability for my problem. •
This is me having the strength to start again and reaching out for help. ❤
Shame is taking an action and generalizing it into a personality trait. "I relapsed, therefore I am a failure. I don't have the fortitude to make it through this. I am weak." Shame is toxic to recovery.
