Joie de Vivre

Some people can drink alcohol moderately and manage to maintain a happy, balanced life.

Some people cannot.

Alcohol can make you feel happy, sexy, confident and full of joie de vivre.

Alcohol can make you feel desperately unhappy, full of self-hatred, anxious and sick.

Drinking is a social event, a ‘thing’ that seems to be all around us.

Being teetotal can make you feel somewhat left out.

Nobody can make you stop drinking, so if you choose, you can continue to drink until you die.

Nobody can make you continue to drink, so if you choose, you never have to drink alcohol again.

Some people can take or leave alcohol.

Some people can’t seem to stop drinking once they begin.

Some people want to reach self-fulfilment.

Some people are happy to drift along as they are.

Alcohol is marketed in a way which can make it appear to be sophisticated and cool.

Alcohol is the root cause of thousands of deaths every year.

Alcohol can negatively skew your vision of your world.

You possess the ability to choose what works best for you in your life.

You are the master of your own destiny.

  1. Love this…just love this. The simplicity of the whole “devil vs. angel” tug of war. Interesting how as I look back over the last year and see myself on the spectrum. I was SO on the “keep doing whatever you’re doing”…and slowly but surely found myself WANTING the change. And making small changes. Then bigger changes. Then the ultimate change. My work is FAR from over…it has only just begun. But I was so incredibly happy to follow the YES path on your flow chart this time whereas up until about a month ago, it would have been NO…Do you want to be happy…YES…Change something. By making this one change, I have altered the course of my entire life. Thank you for a beautiful treasure!

    • Hi there, thank you for your comment. It is amazing how making that one change alters everything isn’t it? I had no idea how much my world would change but everyday it gets better and I, like you, have noticed that it has been a journey, one step at a time, but eventually – wham! A massive difference. Thanks again for your lovely comment. Lucy x
