“Having made what you know to be the correct decision, never ever question that decision.” – Alan Carr
It’s a cruel irony that the 10-15 years of regular drinking that's generally regarded as necessary to build an alcohol dependency is the same 10-15 years required to build mastery in a career or profession.
Just when you finally become good enough to start building something greater than yourself, there's a good chance it's at the same exact time you've built up a strong dependency on alcohol.
Well, a few years ago I started feeling like that situation described me pretty well, and one of the things that helped reprogram me into a happy non-drinker was Alan Carr's The Easy Way to Stop Drinking. And I want to do whatever I can to try and spread that to others.
So I designed and minted these sobriety achievement coins – starting with Year One – that celebrate the long, never ending path we all have in front of us… while also looking gorgeous and celebrating life outside away from the drink!
I’ll end with another Alan Carr quote, “What you really enjoy in an alcoholic drink is not the drink itself, but the ending of the irritation of wanting that drink. Non-drinkers enjoy that all the time.”
Celebrating your sobriety milestones is important. It keeps you motivated. It keeps you humble. And I hope this coin helps you or a loved one continue on the path towards long-term, permanent freedom from alcohol.
Note: Coin is 1.5 inches around.
