If I Was Thrown Into Rehab…Posted: February 22, 2011
This is one of my all time favorite quotes and I wanted to share it with you (as StumbleUpon wanted to do with me) Side note: If you’d rather I keep my SU obsessions/finds to myself – please leave me a comment and tell me so! I understand that it may seem like a little too much too soon. I love quotes – but I love you more 😉
My morning’s workout was all about legs & back, baby. I was doing squats, lunges, skaters and wall sits all over my room this morning. I threw in some moves with the resistance bands for some back work and called it a day!
Breakfast was Nutella and PB oats. Mmm, good! 😀
And like any normal, well-adjusted 23-year-old, I drank my milk out of my cow mug
I know, it’s a slightly graphic mug – but I enjoy it 🙂
Okay – I need your opinion. I’ve mentioned before that I’m currently taking a Substance Abuse class (for counseling, of course). We have been assigned a two-week project that involves ending/stopping/quitting an activity or habit that that can be defined as a negative behavior or “addiction”* that we enjoy (i.e. speeding or drinking 3 sodas a day) – and replacing it with something healthier. The main idea is: How are we, as counselors, supposed to be able to tell substance abusing clients to just “cut it out” (which we can’t!) if we have never given up something that we enjoy.
I don’t have too many habits that negatively affect me, but I do have some “addictions” that would be seriously difficult to give up if I was thrown into rehab. I toyed with the idea of taking away cereal, but my professor advised us not to do anything too drastic or life altering 😉
So, here’s what I’m thinking:
1. Give up PB (AH!) and replace with Greek yogurt
2. Give up Facebook and replace with phone conversation
3. Give up technology after 8 PM and replace with reading for pleasure or journaling
I know they sound semi-lame, but I’d truly have a tough time giving up anything of these things. (Remember it’s only for two weeks.)
Which one should I choose?! I’m open different ideas, too. If you had to do this project, what would you choose as your problem behavior and your treatment?
Enjoy your morning, friends!! Catch ya later 😀
*Please note that I’m using the term “addictions” in a colloquial manner. Not as it is defined in the DSM-IV-TR
