365 Challenge : Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes

How do I make major changes in my life?

I tend to go cold turkey. I’m one of those people who other people hate because I’m so sure of myself and when I set my mind on something I can usually just do it.

If I weened myself off of something then I wouldn’t think I was changing so I want to do it right away without a second thought.

Have I changed something big before in my life?

I had to give up coffee at one point. I don’t know why I started drinking it so much but it got to the point where I couldn’t live without a cup of coffee by my side, I drove myself insane with it. When I realised that my health was being negatively effected by it of course I had to give it up. The nurse and the doctor told me that I should do it slowly but I decided to just give it up right there and then. It was hard, real hard, some people that knew me well said that I made it look easy but it was so far from easy I couldn’t even begin to tell you how much it hurt me.

In the end though I think that was the best thing for it. If I had given it up bit by bit I think I would have ended up not giving it up at all. Why would I? I would have made myself think that now that I wasn’t drinking it 24/7 I’d be able to handle it.

Sometimes I think you need to test your willpower by doing things like this. I prefer that test then to kid myself that I can change slowly.
