Alcoholic Anonymous encourages its members to take things one day at a time. Otherwise, attempting too much too soon can interfere with achieving sobriety or any major goal.
It’s natural to become overwhelmed if you try to imagine giving up alcohol or any powerful habit on a permanent basis. It’s less distressing to think in terms of drinking just water for the next 24 hours or skipping a single happy hour.
Similarly, if you expect to go directly from being a couch potato to running a marathon, you might give up before you even finish your first mile.
With any goal, you’re more likely to succeed with a gradual approach that allows you to boost your confidence and motivation. See what happens when you keep your focus on the present.
