Having a calm, peaceful mind is something that eluded me most of my life. Before I stopped drinking, I led a lifestyle that was chaotic at best and dangerous at worst. The idea of serenity was a joke. I lived a fast life, filled with bad choices, cheap thrills, and pointless pursuits. There was very little meaning to my existence, as far as I could discern, and serenity certainly played no part in any of it!
Unfortunately, many of us rely on alcohol to bring a false sense of serenity, peace, and comfort into our lives. Only when we’re able to break free from the cycle of drinking and bad decisions will be able to pursue, and hopefully achieve, lasting peace.
If you haven’t been able to stop drinking yet, make it a point to create as much serenity in your life as possible. We can’t expect a life without some turmoil. In fact, life might feel a little boring if we didn’t have some drama. But we also don’t need to live a life dominated by angst.
