Non 12 Step News For November 25, 2012

“Congruency,” what  it is, what it means, and why it matters to you.

One reason many of us abuse alcohol is because our lives are out of balance. Sometimes this imbalance is between work and our home life (or lack thereof), or it may be between ourselves and a spouse or partner, or it may be an internal conflict between our beliefs and our actions.

It’s not unusual for the problem to show up in every area of our lives.

Congruency, as we use it, means creating a balance where your beliefs and behaviors match.  When you do this you can stop medicating the gap between what  actually is and what “ought” to be or “should” be.

Want to stop abusing alcohol? Then stop pretending that your life, work, marriage, wishes, and so forth are something other than what they are – then learn to eliminate the discrepencies.

We’ll help you define your actual priorities, recognize new options, grant absolution for past mistakes, and provide you with the tools, motivation, and attitudes that result in a happier life.

Want to stay miserable? Then keep doing what you’ve always done.

Want an interesting research project on what’s possible? Start making changes and see what happens.

You don’t have much to lose, and you have a life — your life — to gain.

What’s that worth to you? As much as a free phone call, perhaps?

The calendar breaks down a bit differently this December.

It’s always interesting to see how many opportunities you have in December to take advantage of holidays and vacations and winter escapes to southern California to get the help you need in a very discrete way.

This year it looks like there’re even more options than usual, what with Christmas and New Years falling on Tuesdays.

That means we can work with you beginning on December 3, 10, or 17 — before the holiday — or December 31 – January 4, through the New Year’s holiday. Wouldn’t that be a different way to start 2013?

Of course most of January is still open.

The real possibility to consider, however, is that it’s a great time of year to escape under cover of a vacation, get started on the fast effective help you need, and never expose yourself or your alcohol abuse problems.

You really can’t disappear for 30, 60, or 90 days without ratting yourself out (and being labeled an alcoholic which you probably aren’t, and which doesn’t help even if you are) but a week’s vacation in southern California won’t raise a single eyebrow.

Wondering what’s stopping you?

Why not call and we’ll help you sort that out, too.
