Finding aspects of ourselves that we love can be a challenge. When you are someone who has struggled with Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) or addiction, this challenge may become even greater.
Oftentimes, those living with addiction feel embarrassment or shame around their disease. This makes self-accountability difficult as many struggling with addiction do not believe they deserve help.
Negative thoughts about oneself are common during recovery, and it can be strenuous trying to change your own self talk-track. Utilizing words of affirmation during recovery is a beneficial way to turn those negative thoughts into positive and effective mantras that will assist you in managing your addiction and avoid relapse.
