Its going to take work, to have discipline, its just important to realize that most good things, in life, take work, and sacrifice. It took discipline, when someone was a baby, because every time a baby tries to walk, at the beginning, they fall on their butt. Finally, one day the baby gets up, and walks across the room, because they try and try again. when they fall, they get back up, and try some more. It is the same with sobriety, sometimes someone may fall but as long as they are putting in the effort and actually trying. It is important to realize that if someone falls they need to be like the baby and get back up.
excuses are like giving up, i was full of them in the past, and i just wish someone had told me these things.

He gets the players to believe in themselves and they go out and play at 110 percent. Think of breaking bad habits as a football game. I am the coach and I am telling you that you can do it. You will give 110 percent because you believe in yourself. Your speech is that you can have self discipline and you will be motivated. Stay positive when the dealer says you can not quit. Stay positive when others tell you you will never make it, because you will. Stay positive and you will learn discipline I know you will I know you can.
