I wake up every morning with a renewed energy and lust for life. I am able to accomplish tasks and goals in my personal and professional life. I have a clean home; and I follow up with professional meetings, connections, and tasks. I treat my husband and myself with respect and dignity.
**Feedback would be greatly appreciated!**

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely vision statement! This feels so authentic and meaningful!
All the best,
January 27, 2016 at 9:01 am #5994
@julie D – Great vision statement, but I have a feeling you need some more energized words included, so let me throw out some ideas. Allow yourself to think about what you really want to experience in your relationship with your husband. Do you want respect and dignity, or do you want to experience a loving and meaningful relationship, or a shared passion and joy for learning and exploring new things in life, or the feeling of knowing you are with the person you want to grow old with.
And do you want a clean home, or a home that inspires creativity, helps you embrace your feminine energy, or is a nurturing open space where you feel safe and supported to fully immerse yourself in this 30-day journey.
I would just give yourself permission to go a step further in some areas, and then tie together with sobriety.
My sobriety has awoken an energy and lust for life that has me waking up excited and full of energy every day. I easily accomplish my goals personally and professionally with my newfound passion for life, all of which carries over to creating and maintaining an inspiring and loving home where my husband and I are able to love and live like I have always dreamed.
Anyway, hope this helps you or others!

I am so proud of me. I am clear headed, energetic, and optimistic. I am spending time on things that are really important to me like sewing, beading, and house stuff. I am continuing to progress toward my goal weight, and exercise feels great. I feel loved, beautiful and healthy.
October 28, 2016 at 6:39 pm #14845Participant
@ Julie D. Yes beautifully said thank you for sharing and good luck !!!!!!

I wake up with energy and purpose, one day closer to my goal. Clarity, relief and inspiration are back in my life.
November 30, 2018 at 10:53 am #121337Participant
I wake up each morning feeling healthy, energized, and focused. I am excited about the day ahead. I feel proud of myself for the steps I’ve taken in sobriety to improve life for myself and for my family. I am especially proud to be a role model for my children and for being present in their lives. It feels good to be doing this, for ME!

It may be a bit long, but would appreciate Dave or Jack’s feedback: Vision Statement: I am much closer to God. I don’t drink for the day – taking the option off the table very morning – but just for that day. I am actively moving towards a Zen life focus. I mediate everyday. I wake up excited about my ability to work on my trading with a clear mind that leverages my intellect. I exercise everyday and have lost 25 pounds – now weighing 205 with a goal of 195 later on without dieting but living a mostly Paleo Diet with no bad carb snacking at night. My family loves me again and actively communicates to me their successes and worries.
April 6, 2016 at 2:12 am #9385Participant
I love this mission statement so much I am using much of it as the basis of my own. Sounds a bit lazy I know but completing the daily tasks is my main objective. I will revisit as my journey continues & update with more personal views when I am more fully connected with my own self & spiritual being. So thanks for sharing & the team for reviewing.
January 21, 2016 at 6:19 pm #5497
I would like to chime in too, Blackhorse. I am excited for you! This vision statement is going to lead you into a wonderful life! This looks really great and I can tell these things mean a lot to you.
It sounds like you are looking for feedback and here are some things to think about…I would just consider taking the word “bad” out of no carb snacking – maybe even instead, saying “making healthy food choices at night” instead of “no bad carb snacking at night” because, just like if we said, “don’t think of the blue elephant, don’t think of the blue elephant”, of course our brain thinks of the blue elephant. You might feel better if you didn’t even mention carbs if they are trigger for you, because your thoughts won’t even go there, or will be less likely to.
Also, I saw the part about “my family loves me again” and that is really important, I know. I just want to propose that you also focus on loving yourself. When you can love yourself, and forgive yourself, you can be more open and receptive to love from others. And, remember, you teach people how to treat you. If you treat yourself with love and are loving, people will respond with more kindness and love to you.
All the best,
January 22, 2016 at 10:03 am #5527Participant

January 23, 2016 at 5:10 pm #5608Participant
Here’s my vision statement:
Today I get more sleep and I’m more energetic and clearheaded. Because of this new found energy, I’ve ramped up my new business to help people, I’m respected and truly loved by my family and I have lost 25 pounds since I have been living a healthier lifestyle.
Anyone can feel free to let me know what you think!
January 23, 2016 at 10:51 pm #5630
Way to go Jon! I can tell you are going to feel more energized and happier than ever!
Thanks so much for sharing!
January 24, 2016 at 7:52 am #5762Participant
My main purpose in life is to reflect God’s character and love and be a blessing to others, especially those in need. I am thankful I now have over 30 days of sobriety and have started an exciting new life. I sleep restfully every night and wake up feeling great, physically and emotionally. I’ve regained the physical health, strength and fitness I enjoyed throughout most of my life. Sobriety is helping me realize long cherished dreams, achieve important goals and live a successful life that will inspire and motivate others to succeed.
I would appreciate any input you’d like to offer.

rrioscepero and eigramsmada, these are both VERY inspiring vision statements! Read them every day and keep working on the daily solutions and you will get to where you want to be!
January 27, 2016 at 9:14 am #5996
@eigramsmada – This one is soooo good. I would consider dropping “again” and I am a big fan of not assuming sobriety at this stage, even though you could make a case that to embody this you would have to be sober, but what about adding it in here.
I am full of life, love & energy. I radiate contagious enthusiasm! I am wildy-fit, self-confident, passionate and HAPPY. I am living life to the fullest and my SOBER heart is a magnet that attracts more of everything I desire.
April 7, 2016 at 12:06 pm #9422Participant

July 19, 2016 at 6:52 am #12689Participant
This one screamed at me….”this is you!”, so I shamelessly stole it and added a few things.
I am full of life, love & energy. I radiate contagious enthusiasm! I am wildy-fit, self-confident, passionate and HAPPY again. I am living life to the fullest and my heart is a magnet that attracts more of everything I desire. I am a great brother, son, nephew, friend and partner. I invest my time and energy to grow those meaningful things that are important to me. I cultivate. I relate. I smile. I give. I love.

Oh no, its on day one. Go to the daily checklist and it is at the bottom. Seems that the daily checklist is best place to find the important reminders. Best of luck to you!!!
January 26, 2016 at 12:53 pm #5935Participant
I am energetic, confident, fun loving and free. I exercise on most days and play tag with my daughter. Sobriety has made it possible for me to be present in my life. I love my husband.

My businesses and relationships are improving each day and I can feel my dreams being manifested. I am getting fit and strong running each day and feeling happy and healthy.
February 8, 2016 at 6:53 am #6859
I think the is great…the only thing you might consider is instead of “getting fit” say “I am fit”. I am not sure but I think making statements in the present is more effective, so would it be best to say my businesses and relationships are thriving instead of improving? I would like to know the answer from a coach. Good luck!
February 1, 2016 at 9:19 am #6467Participant

I modified this post to include the phrase sober. In the past I had years of success with moderation and I know I can moderate but I haven’t been doing so great with it lately. The first time I posted this I wasn’t sure I would do the 30 day reboot. I am now convinced about how important it is to spend the time sober and not drinking at all. So, I am in for the 30 day sobriety solution!!! I wanted to modify my vision to include the word sober.
March 6, 2016 at 6:10 am #8071
Okay, I modified this to be 30 Days.
It is April 4th, 2016 and I am Thriving in Sobriety. I am happy and loved and becoming more physically fit and healthy. We are enjoying a positive, loving relationship that is better than ever. l am financially free, positive and optimistic about the professional opportunities I have to choose from.
The book finally arrived!

Feedback is always greatly appreciated. Thank you. 🙂

I am enjoying purifying my one and only, precious, body of toxins and also my mind, my thought engine, of clutter and cloudiness. I feel vibrant, energized and excited about my day ahead.
I have clarity and crispness of thought and a new, eager spring in my step. I am healthy and in control. I am a new source of positive energy and inspiration to those I touch at home or at work or in the train or anywhere – old acquaintances, new acquaintances and strangers.
I have a new passion to live the second half of my life to its FULL potential and to invest in my family to help them realise their full potential…I have a new urgency to squeeze the potential out of every day, every hour, situation, moment, conversation, encounter, opportunity. It’s time to live.

I awaken refreshed every morning, excited to see what new challenges the day will bring. With close to 60 days of sobriety under my belt, I feel humbly proud of myself. I have already lost ten pounds, and I am feeling healthier than I have in many years. I seriously like the person I’ve become, which has led me to being much more sociable and outgoing. My future is very bright, yet I live each day in the here-and-now, savoring every sober second.
March 4, 2016 at 10:47 am #8005Participant
Because of God’s Grace and protection, I have clarity about my today and tomorrow’s. I am living in peace, joy and compassion because I am sober. Career opportunities are opening up and I see where my passion lies. I am healthier than I have ever been and I am having FUN!

My vision statement ~
I am grateful and accepting of being clean. I am happy that I stopped using opiates since I am now a much more content, peaceful person. I am building the wonderful life for myself that I always dreamed of.
I would like feedback. I don’t know if there is enough to this or if I should include more. It seems the guys are falling behind on this? 😉
March 7, 2016 at 6:22 pm #8149
Hi inthegap, I think your vision statement is great – there is a lot of meaning and feeling behind it. The statement is important all the way through the program (I’m on day 27) and you’ll have a chance to make it even more powerful as you go along. I made mine too complicated, I think, so it is a bit unwieldy now – your’s is more focused. The only thing I would consider is the negative phrase “stop using”. Is it better if the whole thing is positive. The ‘happiness’ message is lovely – it is not one I included, but it has been an unexpected gift of these past few weeks. All the best for your journey!
March 13, 2016 at 12:50 pm #8370Participant
Thanks Deena. I guess you are done by now so wishing you success on your continued journey. 🙂 It is really hard to make that into a positive statement. The closest I could come, after much thought, is “I am happy without mind altering chemicals and am a content, peaceful person.” I know it still uses ‘without’ but that’s the best I could come up with. You are right that it should be positive focused.
March 7, 2016 at 4:35 am #8136Participant
Evenings were a difficult time for me, so I crafted my vision statement to to support the changes I want to make and how evenings can become “my friend”….
I end each day reflecting on my accomplishments and grateful for the abundance in my life; knowing that I’ve lived each moment to the fullest, that I’ve given my best in every situation, proud that I’ve consistently made decisions that are aligned with my values and goals and knowing that I’ve positively touched others lives

Thank you for sharing, the late afternoon and early evenings are a natural time for me to reflect, and i am not a morning person!
March 8, 2016 at 10:49 pm #8199Participant
Okay… Feedback please? I know this is prob a little long. Should I put it in one paragraph? I’d like it to be shorter, but dont know what I’d cut.
I feel so happy, hopeful, and EMPOWERED living a sober life. It’s effortless to stay sober because EVERYTHING is better this way. #winning
I’m vibrant, healthy, and super fit…I feel AMAZING!

I awaken each day clear-headed and energized to enjoy all the wonderful things life has to offer – such as travel, hikes in nature and swimming in the sea! Self-love and self-acceptance is my #1 priority! Therefore, I have a new dedication to taking time for my own self-care – whether it be movement, preparing healthy meals, reading self-help books, journaling my feelings, and so much more.
Felt good to write this!!!

Very seldom do I post on any forums or social sights, I was just never a fan… but I feel compelled to do so now son here is my Day 2 vision statement after 35 years of daily drinking… let me know what you think.
“I have emerged. I have found the inner me that was lost so long ago. I can’t begin to tell you how astonishing it is to actually feel again, to love again, to live again. I bring you me. The me that has carried the burden for so long and has won, persevered to let the glow of happiness and joy shine through and to finally be seen…”
April 3, 2016 at 11:16 pm #9252Participant
I am struggling somewhat on this and if anyone wants to make suggestions that would be much appreciated. Thank you.
“I meet each day with enthusiasm knowing that my actions are congruent with my values of compassion, health, learning, and caring for others, the community, and the world. I am clear-minded and focussed on my professional life, balanced with fun and meaningful times spent with family and friends. I trust myself to find meaning and purpose every day.
April 4, 2016 at 10:44 pm #9307Participant
Today is another gift. My sobriety allows me to see the daily opportunities to improve my relationships. As a manager I focus (patiently) on teaching the “why” so my employees can grow to figure out the “how” quicker and independently. E + R = O is the first thought I have when faced with a stressful situation. As a mom I have a new-found patience with my children and there is a calmness in the house now. My sense of humor is back. I cannot believe how much fun I can have laughing with my kids and sister. My boyfriend has always made me laugh. I finally am repaying him with my light, witty comments and positive support. I am reaching out to old friends and finding catching up to be rewarding. The guilt is gone. It is amazing how clear my priorities are now. And did I mention… I look and feel fine.
April 5, 2016 at 10:20 am #9338Participant

I am CONFIDENT. My dreams are beginning to chase me.

I’m reading this book to break a different kind of addictive behavior, which is overeating. I hope you’ll accept me on this forum even though I don’t struggle with alcohol. I believe the impact of this behavior has been similar. I have white knuckled my way through 100 lbs of weight loss but have another 50-60 to go. I need help in this last stretch and I have already found this book helpful. Also, I hope positively impact my dad who I believe is an excessive drinker, even if he won’t admit it or talk about it. Maybe by addressing my own issues; I can be a role model.
Here is my Vision Statement:
I wake up excited, rested and in peak condition, ready to peacefully seize every opportunity that serves my goals. I act quickly, with clarity and courage in all circumstances. I am in full alignment with my highest self. I have released my emotional baggage. I acknowledge and honor my boundaries. I am free from addictive behavior. I enjoy my work, laugh with friends and lovers, find new adventures and draw opportunities to me. I am proud of myself and all the things I have accomplished and grateful for the wonderful people that surround me.

May 5, 2016-Vision Statement: I am a vibrant, healthy and sober 46 yr. old man who loves his family, his work and his life partner! I exercise daily to ensure that my physical body is healthy. I’m moving towards my goal weight of 240 lbs. It feels good to be under 250! I eat healthy foods…making the most healthy choices available to me. I eat organic and prepare my food to ensure my health. Fast foods and overly processed foods just don’t make sense to me anymore. I drink healthy liquids. I enjoy my morning coffee and focus on water and zero calorie drinks at all other times. I spend time in meditation/prayer daily, being thankful for the gifts that I have and also clear about my goals for the future. My fiscal health improves daily. My savings is up. My credit is up. My ability to provide for my children and save for my future gets stronger by the day. I love my relationship with Jeanne. I take time to nurture our love as we continue to get to know each other. I only look forward. My goals for tomorrow are what drives me today.

Anyway, I want to share my vision statement. It’s short and sweet.
I am living a life of healthy sobriety, full of meaning, love, joy, and gratitude.

My vision statement seems too long, but brevity is not my strength, and I find it hard to trim my vision to less than what it really is. Feedback is welcome. Thanks.
I wake up feeling excited to have another successful day and elated and celebratory about the accomplishment of a completed month of thriving in sobriety. I know I am on the right track, healthy, clear-headed, proud and normal. I am paying off my debts toward financial freedom. I am a good role model to my niece and nephews and others who look to me for leadership. I remember everything I said and did the day before. I am a responsible adult, good citizen, upstanding member of my community, stellar daughter, sister, auntie, friend, employee, coworker and doggie mama. I feel positive about the future and my place in the world and my ability to keep moving forward and achieving my dreams in life. I fall asleep at night feeling confident and proud of myself. I have faith in my ability to take good care of myself and my dogs and behave like a respectable, classy adult.
April 18, 2016 at 10:29 am #9873Participant
I love your vision statement. Mine was very long as well, however, I got no replies at all, which kind of bummed me out.
Your statement really hit home to me, I thought you were eloquent, and to the point of what was important to you. Not sure why length is such a big deal. You spoke from your heart.
In any case, I enjoyed your lack of brevity, it allowed me to get to know a bit more about you.
April 21, 2016 at 2:08 am #9982Participant
I wake up daily to that which brings me joy and purpose into my world. My horses who mutually thrive with me in our relationship. My newly and rejuvenated and athletic body exudes strength and beauty. I have a full and loving relationship with a special person who supports me and helps bring out my greatness. My body is “clean” and full of vibrancy. My dreams and passions which I have invested, are becoming reality and serves to empower children from all walks of life through music and horses.

This is day 3 for me but I’m still on day 2 exercises. Got totally hung up on the vision statement yesterday. This morning, while writing in my journal (haven’t journaled before, it’s great) I realised that I was looking for the ‘perfect’ statement. But, the perfect statement meant that I would have to be ‘perfect’ and that’s way too much pressure right now!
So my statement is:
I am successfully living in sobriety.
I am grateful for this time to learn and grow.
Everyday, in every way, I am getting better and better and better!
**Feedback would be greatly appreciated**
May 1, 2016 at 9:31 am #10478Participant
joby16 you silly person you are perfect. Already. You are exactly where you need to be right now.
Yes that is a common trap with the exercises. If you are North American then I think it comes from our terrible school system. Scared to try for fear it is wrong. I encourage you to blast through the exercises. Write them in your journal. At day 30 you can look back and slap me if I’m wrong BUT you will be amazed how far you have come and how useful those first thoughts were. Make the book your daily priority. Do the activities. Many carry on so keep them up. Yes it will seem hard but you’ll be surprised at the extra time you have in a day. And they keep you too busy to think about old bad habits ?
May 1, 2016 at 8:52 am #10474Participant
My life is a beautiful, fulfilling representation of peace and order. My career is unstoppable, the most satisfying work I have done.
My family is so very proud of me, and continue to support me on my path of sobriety.
My life is full of joy and sublime meaning on a daily basis, and I feel 100% at ease mentally, physically and emotionally. My new mind and body knows no bounds. I am truly living this life to the fullest!
May 2, 2016 at 10:47 am #10528Participant
Well I am struggling with getting my vision statment prepared. This is what I have come up with.
My life purposed is to be the best husband and father I can be. God has plans for me. The discernment of these plans will become clearer as I work through these first 30 days. I am having difficulty articulating anything more specific at this time, but I want sobriety and am committed to doing theses exercises.
May 2, 2016 at 12:16 pm #10533Participant
I am in control! I am strong. I am responsible. I am healthy. I am grateful and happy.
I know it’s pretty simple, but I think it sums up the biggest challenges I have with my current life. Right now, I feel I am the opposite of all of these things and that needs to change! I AM BETTER THAN THIS!
I woke up this morning after sleeping the first time in a long time without alcohol. I slept HARD and woke up pretty groggy. I’m sure it’s going to take some time for my sleep cycle to reregulate. The journaling exercise today really drove home why I’m doing this and envisioning the new me at the end of May gives me a lot of hope.
May 5, 2016 at 1:51 am #10690Participant
I am grateful to live an alcohol-free life, and that sobriety is easy. I set a good example for others who struggle with alcohol. I am both helpful and fulfilled in my relationships, and I am excited about a future full of love, companionship, travel, prosperity, and creativity! Feedback appreciated, thank you!
May 10, 2016 at 7:25 pm #10980Participant
It took me a few days hashing this around in my head, but here it is.
I wake up refreshed with total recall of the previous day’s events. I build on the gains of yesterday. I am confident that this day will bring joy and success.
As I lay in bed and close my eyes, I am proud and grateful for my alcohol free day. My body is calm and my brain is free of guilt or regrets. I look forward to a good nights sleep.
May 21, 2016 at 9:31 pm #11386Participant
I am bright, happy, and empowered knowing I have chosen to create my beautiful life.
I am clear and stable in my vision for my full potential and purpose.
I smile and laugh more than ever!
I continue to meditate and practice yoga every day.
I challenge myself through exercise and feel light and healthy.
I am grateful for my work that allows me to nurture myself and others every day.
I am ready to begin attracting a healthy new relationship, full of sober connection, love, fun, and sweetness.
I am in love with myself and my life again.
For me, a list seemed to create the clearest vision for me. Feedback welcomed and appreciated! Peace!

Hi silas, your vision statement sounds just right. Not too over ambitious, just straight forward and to the point. As long as you focus on achieving that goal in a sober state, all will be good as you continue to work on the Solutions ahead of you in the program. I’m doing my second go round of the program now. On Day 10, and with 54 days of Sobriety. It’s tough at times, but worth it. Good luck and stay strong! Sina

Hello, I am making my first attempt at a vision statement. I am on Day Two of this journey. Let me know how it sounds:
I am grateful for the positive choices I am making in sobriety with regard to my health, relationships, and career. I am passionate, creative, purposeful and productive. I am living the life I’ve always dreamed of and it is better than I could have imagined. I am strong, self-confident and happy again.
May 31, 2016 at 11:55 pm #11672
tiger & librarygirl . . . both of your statements are Great! Seems to me that as long as they feel real and personal to you, then that should be enough. Don’t think there is a right or wrong phrasing of such a thing . . . if that is what you were asking or looking for. I suppose the test of such a statement is when or if one feels tempted to return to ‘negative drinking’ and instead one turns to the statement and relies on it to pull one through the momentary temptation.
Best to you!
June 11, 2016 at 5:41 pm #11976Participant
I am joyful, strong, and free. I am daily becoming who God created me to be. My sobriety frees the way for my God-given gifts to manifest fully. I am thankful for the past, present and the future. I am thankful for ALL of the past, because it has brought me to this point. I take on each day in a state of excitement, energy and joy. I am physically, emotionally, and spiritually healthy. I am a powerhouse!

Here is mine:
I wake up every morning with a new zest for living and what I anticipate…because I sleep so soundly at night due to sobriety and due to my reflected weight loss.
I’m flowing with creative energy to finish all tasks I’ve started including to finish dressing our new to us historic home. I embellish it with touches that say “me” and that lend an welcome invitation of earth and comfort to all who enter. In always ready because I am clear-headed and rested and vibrant!
My husband smiles that smile that says, “I’m so proud of you!” He admires my energy and accomplishments as if they were his own…because wh is grateful we are a team in life. He sees a new found confidence in me and an integrity which stirs up trust in him. We live share our days and night together working and dreaming of a wonderful “4th quarter” in our journey called marriage.
Our children, though grown want to be around me for the joy and wisdom they glean from my story. They live what I impart to their children.they want what I have…because reek of love and vitality. I exude a passion for God, life, my husband, them and most of all for myself.
I look for ways to share my new-found hope and direction with others because I delight their success.
My outer shell glows with the vibrancy and sparkle of what is happening internally. People think I’m beautiful, classy, smart, caring, compassionate and thoughtful…for that is what is occurring within. I can hardly wait for tomorrow because I am always present, alert and ready for what ever life throws me! I am thriving in sobriety. I am grateful to my core!
June 12, 2016 at 11:58 am #11992
Beautiful! I’ve copied it and will read it along with mine each morning. I love this! Sounds like you are doing fantastic with the program. Keep up the great work. We are also in the “4th quarter” of our marriage, 56 yrs. It’s been quite a game and we are comfortably ahead, but looking forward to a fabulous finish, even greater now that I am sober.

I am peaceful and proud because I have a plan for drinking AND I am actually doing it. I control alcohol and I wake up psyched for one more day with drinking behind me. I am happier and re-connecting. I am less bloated and losing weight. I am falling in love with myself again. I know my responses direct my outcomes. I am positive about life without alcohol.
I would love Feedback! Thank you for all your support and the plan.

peaceful5039 . . . sounds pretty darn good to me.
Seems like you have it under control and are happier as a result of making the needed changes. Not sure it gets any better.
Take good care and best going forward.

“I am enlightened, inspired, and living my passion every day to the best/fullest of my abilities and potential. I have learned from mistakes and the past and now I shine bright and am happy with who I am.”
(Trying to write a good vision statement…)
Today is my “day 2” but really I have quit booze for 8 days now and i feel better and more clear yet I really want to take down a few bottles right now , I haven’t gone to a meeting yet
this is very difficult
but I have to do this
and I will
any support or feedback ? I could use just one person who understands how i’m losing my damn mind right now
i’m so used to drinking everyday
alone and frustrated
July 8, 2016 at 5:30 pm #12486
Do I ever hear you! That was me for years and years. Just hang in there; it does get better. I am now on Day 27, but with 90 days sober! I do go to meetings and that helps me, but even though I was sober, I was not happy “or thriving”! I always wanted to “take down a few bottles”! But by following the solutions in the book, on a 60-day plan, I am happy, calm, and beginning to enjoy the Pleasure in sobriety. So please, hang in there and keep doing the work…… Your “damn mind” does straighten out and become your friend again — and this is from a gal who was “used to drinking everyday” for 48+ years! Just wanted you to know you are understood more than you will ever know, and you are NOT alone! There is light ahead and it is beautiful. Good luck to you!
September 2, 2016 at 5:28 pm #13491Participant
Hi Grams8 and thank you for the post above…I hope you get this as it’s been almost 2 months since you wrote. Can’t tell you how much it meant to hear you say you drank for 48+ years. I’m on Day 2, and I drank for 47 years…that number seems impossible to believe. And for 20 years at least, I vowed to quit almost every day. I’m struggling through my 2nd day and having cravings. My alcoholic mind even got somewhat bummed out reading everyone’s vision statements, thinking, “that will never be me.” If you or anyone gets this and can give me some help, I’d really appreciate it.
September 3, 2016 at 7:52 pm #13513
Wisecats please please please, don’t get bummed out! You drank for 47 years and I drank for 20 but age is just a number. You can do this! You deserve to experience everything sobriety has to offer. Imagine yourself once the cravings are gone and you complete the 30 day reboot! Your potential for success is unlimited. You are not alone. We are here for you. Blessings on your journey. Press on!

Vision statement in the works:
I am ending my recent career and looking at ways to start my next journey in life. I am living every moment, good and bad. I am savoring time with my adult children, and I am sober and working toward self acceptance every day.
July 13, 2016 at 12:16 am #12564Participant
My Vision Statement: Day 2 of sobriety
I am extremely thankful each day that the Lord led me to this amazing tool to aid me in my committment to becoming and staying sober. Each day I feel more alive, confidant, and stronger, both mentally and physically. My self esteem and self respect has been restored. My life is falling into place and it is an extremely good place to be in. I am grateful to wake up each day knowing I have been given yet another day to get my life straight. I take my life ‘one day at a time’.
Feedback would be greatly appreciated.
July 16, 2016 at 5:39 pm #12659Participant
I am so happy to be free of that nagging feeling that used to descend on me at 5pm each day. I no longer need to detour home via the bottleshop. I no longer have guilt overshadow my daily routine. My evenings are spent connecting with my children, I now have as much energy as them, we have a fantastic night cooking up a storm. I am so grateful that i have made the switch to a vegan lifestyle, this has supported my 30 day journey. My effort at the gym is being supported by less calories consumed, and this is evident in my physique. I think of my life in full colour, full of opportunities, rather than counting bottles. My finances are thanking me, I have sold a business, and paid off credit cards. I now can see clearly what my passion for life is, and where I am going next – a life of financial freedom, and travel. I am not afraid to speak my truth, rather than making other people happy. I have moved forward with a life filled with joy, love and laughter. Life is full,of colour and energy, welcome back me again.

I am looking younger and feel so healthy and fit with a new radiance in my face that makes me smile. I am present each day for my children and grand daughter that allows me to again play and to with them whenever they need me. Joy and hope for my future dreams are now achievable and because today I have found how to love myself, I believe that I will in return be loved.

So inspired by the vision statements I have read so far I don’t know how where to start! I am waking up in the morning feeling fresh and new. Well rested and full of energy, ready to conquer the day without the anesthetic of alcohol. I am feeling God’s presence and overwhelming comfort in my life like never before as I submit each day to his loving guidance and protection. My marriage is renewed with passion and mutual respect for each other. I am successful at work and fulfilling my dreams as a yoga teacher. Each day we are one step closer to realizing our mutual dream of retirement and living on a boat full time traveling the world by sea. I am the mother, daughter and sister I have always dreamed of being. My creativity at work as a designer is more vibrant than I could have imagined. Life without the crutch/poison of alcohol is better than I could have ever dreamed. Thank you for caring and sharing your vision statements

Thank you for asking me to clarify.
My career goals are to put the gears in motion to become an independent entrapeneur and no longer work for one company providing me more freedom. My personal goals are to form strong relationships with those I love, eventually move closer to family, and become a healthy fit individual.

My weekends are more enjoyable and memorable. Everyday tasks are no longer daunting. My grandkids thrill me instead of wear me out. My marital relationship is renewed with a passion I thought I lost due to age.

I like it Ranger Rick! It’s simple and to the point. Great words to live by! Sina
October 11, 2016 at 5:36 pm #14377
Ranger-rick, I do have one suggestion to give your Vision Statement more oomph……leave out the words “want to “. It becomes your new reality Now, more than a wish, more than a want! What do you think? Sina
October 11, 2016 at 5:16 pm #14376Participant
Here is my vision statement, any feedback is welcome 🙂
My life is renewed with excitement, love & boundless creative energy! I am confidently walking this new sober path with immense gratitude and thankfulness. My continued persistence has rewarded me with this amazing transition, reawakening my true self, true spirit and passion for life!
October 11, 2016 at 5:48 pm #14379
Mitzi, the Sentiments expressed here are wonderful!!! Might you want to change the verbs to reflect the present tense, as the book suggests? Then you would have…”walking” is fine, also “walk” works. How about your “continued persistence rewards”, since it’s the gift that will keep giving!? I’m excited for you Mitzi! Sina
October 11, 2016 at 6:45 pm #14383Participant
Sina, Thanks for your feedback. It was a good to suggestion to be more affirmative. By changing “I want” to “I will” shows that I really own it and it’s not just wishful thinking.

I am healthy and happy and excited about what I am accomplishing in my life without alcohol.
November 8, 2016 at 3:49 pm #14972Participant
Reading these makes me wonder if I am doing it wrong. I did not mention anything about sobriety. I wrote:
I’m happy and physically and emotionally healthy. I am a dependable and authentic person, friend, employee, daughter, aunt, cousin, niece, and sister.
I thought of using more “energized” words but I have tried it before and it feels very cliched. For my 30 day vision, I just simply want to be a person who keeps her word, who doesn’t lie, and who is a person I can be proud of…all while being happy and healthy.
Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank You.
November 8, 2016 at 6:39 pm #14974
Hi caramelfrapp! You have written the best vision statement ever! What I like about it is that you have used a minimum of wordage to express a maximum of value. That’s a sign of excellent writing skills as well as a discerning mind. It’s perfect! Thanks, Sina

Hey wanbli, sounds good to me! I think your Sentiments stand alone without reference to the hangover part…as you’ve no doubt found out by now, the negative side which needs to be looked at and remembered, is covered in the next chapter, the Pendulum Solution. Great Vision! Onward Sobriety Seeker! Sina
February 7, 2017 at 2:49 pm #16254Participant
I will realize my life’s purpose and be able to identify the vision I have for my sober life. I will actually take steps toward living that life. I will feel healthy and be at a healthy weight. I will feel more positive and hopeful about life and I will be proud of myself for my accomplishing this difficult task of overcoming alcohol addiction. I will be able to identify my feelings, face them, and deal with them alcohol free. I live in the present and do not judge myself or others. I am strong enough to manage my feelings whether it’s sadness, frustration, anger, grief, or boredom without trying to escape by using alcohol. I will be able to enjoy and remember happy times and experiences, without trying to enhance those feelings with alcohol. I will spend my time working toward getting to know myself and what will make me feel fulfilled in life. I love myself and I show it by how I treat myself. Please provide feedback 🙂
February 7, 2017 at 3:32 pm #16256
Hi lucky lass!
I love the Sentiments expressed in your Vision Statement and they will serve you well. I identified some threads….focusing on positive feelings, the goals of finding purpose, pride in accomplishments, and self love and acceptance. This is wonderful !
My suggestions are to make your Vision Statement more compact. Maybe combine several topics under one sentence? This is so you will be able to post it where you can see it and review it each day.
The other suggestion is to write each sentence in the present tense, rather than the future. Write these wonderful goals as if they are already a reality. For example, I am a positive person. I work to attain my goal of a healthy weight each day. I am proud of my accomplishments in Sobriety….Keep up the good work! Sincerely Sina,a fellow Sobriety Seeker!
February 11, 2017 at 10:02 pm #16328Participant

Is anyone else starting their 30 days today? I’m on Day 2…here’s my vision for myself. Can you relate?
I am setting a good example for my
children. I am free of the shame, guilt, and regret that plagued me after a day of heavy drinking. I am strong enough, self-confident enough and interesting enough that I don’t rely on the crutch of drinking. I am empowered in my ability to manage my daily life and stress without drinking. Holidays, special occasions and vacations are being remembered based upon the little moments that truly matter, not based upon how much I drank. I am a more present Mother and wife.

Not sure if this is too lengthy, but here it goes. I picked up some ideas from others. Thanks. Feedback from Dave or others is appreciated.
I am a bright, competent woman and a positive role model for my children. Every day I am making wise choices that bring me closer to living the life that I have dreamed of. The life that I deserve. I love waking up with a clear head and optimistic attitude. I am thrilled to be exercising daily and look forward to running a 5k this spring and a 10k this summer. My mind, body and soul are at peace. I feel very happy, healthy and proud of who I have become. I am excited to find out what lies ahead for me.

I wake up happy, refreshed and ready to embrace the day with a smile and positive attitude and get out of bed instead of hitting the snooze button. I feel so much better about myself. I actually have the motivation to make myself look pulled together and dress with care, meditate and workout. All of this is possible because I am sober.
I would be grateful for feedback. Thanks in advance.
April 20, 2017 at 8:29 am #17403
frealgirl . . . Certainly sounds like you are on the right path. Follow through is important, as I”m sure you know. Also, even when we don’t feel all that excited, if we can keep pushing and prodding our self, it can nudge us over any negative inner humps that may still be lingering or hanging about in ourselves.
But maybe that will never be a problem. Sure hope not. Either way, being sober can make all the difference. At least it does for me.
All best going forward. And thanks for your post.
April 22, 2017 at 5:11 am #17432Participant
I am awake and alive. I feel, smell, hear, taste and touch everything around me. I experience the ebb and flow of my energy with every interaction and allow it to move and change me, but not to take from me. I laugh and sing and play piano and work and love the people in my life in healthy ways. I am excited for every second of my day, and it all belongs to me because I am in control of my emotions and reactions to what happens to me. I am alive in every way.
May 7, 2017 at 5:28 pm #17658Participant
Here is my vision statement. I just blurted it out unvarnished. I would love some feedback. Thank you!
I feel alive and excited about my life.
I wake up feeling energetic and proud of myself.
I am healthier, stronger, more engaged and connected to the people around me.
I see what I want in the future and I trust myself to get there.
I am honest and true to my own life and values.
May 7, 2017 at 5:38 pm #17659
Wow @alison202 ! You are an accomplished Blurter! Your Vision Statement doesn’t need to be varnished either! 🙂
I wonder if you even need the “-er”….as in “I am healthy, strong,” etc… That way you don’t compare the Vision to the past at all.
Your future looks bright!

I am strong, lean, and sober. I wake up with plenty of energy to handle whatever may come my way. I have few regrets from choices I make in my daily routine because I nourish myself with healthy food, fun activity, and emotional awareness. Purpose, Meaning, and Perspective are my daily guideposts.

I love this urbangirl❤️ It sounds similar to mine: “Sobriety has given me the energy and the courage to accomplish the things that I’ve always wanted to. It has brought me health and wellness beyond my wildest dreams!”
Let’s bring these visions to life my sober friend:)

I would like feedback please.
My vision statement
I am unbelievably more alert and passionate about life being sober. I sleep well and awaken with joy and gratitude each day. I laugh more, love fiercer and enjoy sharing my life with others. I have more energy to pursue the activities I love. I am more outgoing at the office and more confident in my decision making. Without wine in my life My mental clarity and my thinking is clearer. The brain fog is gone. Instead of sitting on the couch, I do projects and gardening. My relationship with Adam has become much more intimate and fun. We laugh and play. I feel like a kid again. Giddy and full of life and positivity. Unnecessary worry is a thing of the past. Thriving in sobriety I participate in activities in the evenings because I can drive. Sobriety has opened my heart and my life.
May 14, 2017 at 9:53 am #17781
Welcome @soulsearcher !
The sentiments expressed in your Vision Statement are inspiring!
I offer my feedback, based only on my own personal experience.
I would think about reframing the sentences which compare the goals and Life of the New You with the Before You.
For example, eliminate the word “more ” when possible. Also the -er. That way, you don’t have to think about wine and the “Before You” every time you review your Vision Statement. Here are a few sentences without reference to the past…”I am outgoing and confident. My mental mental clarity and thinking is clear. I do projects and gardening. My relationship with Adam is intimate and fun!
Let me know if this is valuable.
Sounds like you are really geared up to Thrive in Sobriety! Welcome aboard the Sober Coaster! Onward, Sina

I wake up each more bring excited to experience and explore the day. I’ve learned new, more healthy ways to address and even transform my anxiety and troubling emotions. I’ve restored a sense of fun and awe into my life and it has transformed my relationships, attracting more good people to me, assuring that I am valued and treated well as people genuinely enjoy spending time with me. My clarity of thought has expanded my horizons and made me more effective at work and my loss of 25 lbs. with my ongoing workouts and healthy eating has led me to feel vibrant, energetic and attractive.
June 8, 2017 at 4:05 pm #18015Participant
It took a lot of thought to create a vision statement. I tried as best as I could to see myself as I hope to be 30 days from now. So here it is:
I wake up each day feeling bright, energetic, and eager and able to accomplish, in sobriety, all of the things that I must do, as well as the things I enjoy doing.
I think that for me this captures how I want to be and feel in 30 days. There are definitely things that I must do and things that I enjoy doing. I’ve neglected these quite a bit the past 2 or 3 years and more than anything, I think this would be the best outcome over the next 30 days.
Please offer any feedback; I’d appreciate it.
June 8, 2017 at 8:16 pm #18017

Is this too generic? I also feel excited – but left out the feeling scared part 🙂
I am excited to be living up to my potential everyday as a father, husband, and human being! The freedom that sobriety gives me allows me to release my unlimited potential, as a mentor to my children, best friend and lover to my wife, and a innovator and leader at work. I am excited about the future, and more excited to explore the possibilities and opportunities that sobriety will bring me. I wake up knowing I will be present every moment of everyday – to experience the joy and excitement of engaging with family and friends, and to be present every moment to share life’s experiences.

Hello, I don’t think your vision statement is too generic; I think it’s great. I’m sure it captures what you really want. I was worried that mine wasn’t too specific too. I’m at day 10 now and when you get there you’ll have the opportunity to refine the statement. My best to you!

I’d love feedback from Dave or Jack, or any of the coaches, or really anyone!
August 24, 2017 at 7:51 pm #18871Participant
I have never posted in a forum before. Hope I am doing this correctly. I am having a really hard time making it past 5 days of sobriety (by the way I hate the word sober, sobriety etc my dad was always trying to get sober but it never seemed to work). I am starting over with the program today. Day 2 solutions are what I decided to do today. I already chose to complete the program in 60 days and journaling is easy since I was doing that prior to finding this program. Following is my vision statement. I wrote it back on July 28th. I have decided I would like feedback and suggestions for words besides sober/sobriety. I started this program because I was drinking a few drinks almost every night. My husband and I want to have another child and I am sure my frequent drinking is not helping.
I am happy, healthy, calm, focused and available for my family. My behaviors support this.
August 25, 2017 at 9:34 am #18878
@jjbear78 I really like your vision statement. You can do this! Some alternative words for sober are happy/healthy/vibrant/confident/poised/articulate/free. Hope this helps. I am on day 48 today. Keep going, it only gets better from here.
August 25, 2017 at 10:42 am #18879Participant
Thank you @sobersailor38 for your feedback. I really like “poised” I will definitely be incorporating that into my thought process and journaling especially when prepping myself for activities where i know others will be drinking and I will be poised and still having a fun time.
August 25, 2017 at 3:29 pm #18881Participant
Day 2 of the program and sobriety. I had a hard time with the Time Travel Technique, for some reason. It made me feel squirmy and uncomfortable. I guess I couldn’t (didn’t want to?) picture myself as a train wreck in 5 or 10 years with continued alcohol use, but I also couldn’t see the vision of health, happiness, energy, and freedom without it.
I’m feeling much more hopeful today. The optimism and positive energy of the program is contagious.
Here is my vision statement:
I am in alignment with my life’s purpose, facing my “true North” with courage, enthusiasm, and peace. I am strong enough to live each moment–both painful and pleasurable–fully conscious.
October 2, 2017 at 5:49 pm #19133Participant
Day 2 – My Vision Statement:

I feel lighter, happier, more confident, calmer, capable and more in control of my life. Im ready to keep discovering and learning how to be my best self.
These days actions were harder than I thought but I have written loads for my Before and New Me statements and now that its done I feel so much better and EXHAUSTED! In a good way! Thanks. x

Welcome Sarah! Sina Here!
I really like your Vision Statement. I predict a great future in store for you.
A tip, post under the most recent topic on each day’s Solution. Or start your own Topic. That way more people currently active on the site will see your post.
One thing I did was to write a very short version of my Vision and post it where I see it a lot. You could eliminate the reference to difficulty in the past and say “I feel light calm healthy confident ” as a way to streamline it for a short version to put where you see it….
Some people spend more than 1 day on certain Solutions (like Day 4!)

I’m struggling with achieving sobriety so I’ve really had to take a hard look of what drinking has taken from me and what it has given to me. It’s taken far more than it’s worth in my life. So here’s to a Vision Statement:
I walk up each day with energy and clarity, a smiling face and a renewed excitement to start my day. My interactions at work are meaningful, efficient and productive. I’m spending quality time with my family and contributing time and energy. I’m enjoying my art and painting, finishing my photography class and feeling proud of the successful creative and beautiful woman I am. I walk proud daily with the new life I’ve created for me.

Hi crusinthrulife, good job with the vision statement and good luck with your sobriety. Whilst it might seem difficult at the moment if you keep looking you will find the key to thriving in sobriety. Then you’ll wonder what all the fuss was about. My break through came when I challenged my belief that I really got a lot of pleasure from drinking alcohol. When I compared it to things That gave me real joy, like hiking in the countryside, I realised the pleasure I got from alcohol was merely illusionary. Been thriving in sobriety for over 8 months now and I’m loving it.
All the best

I am very grateful to have this amazing opportunity to overcome my addiction and live the rest of my life without being controlled by alcohol. I am ever present with my loving family and now live each day with passion focusing on personal and professional growth.

A New Vision….
Removing alcohol from my daily life, healing mind, body and soul brings a new rebirth, an awakening of energy and enthusiasm to fulfill my life’s mission, I once pursued with joy. Acknowledging the morning not hung over provides a feeling on peace and happiness that can easily radiates to others. The new days will be cherished and lived to their fullest while experiencing new places and people as I go.
Any feedback or suggestions would be helpful.

Dear StongMan … I hear you. I’ve been walking the same walk since 12/31/17. The 30DSS has really been a help. I love your vision statement. It rings so true. Stay on the path. Your energies may ebb and flow, but stay in the right direction. Learn how to surf the urge. That’s been helpful for me to understand a lot of this is physical. Maybe you could even call it body chemistries. If you were to search YouTube “surf the urge” you’d see a lot of helpful videos. My best to you! -k

I wake up feeling clear and positive about the new day. Sobriety is allowing me to take advantage of how much more time I have to work on things I actually care about. I am approaching work, BAM and job hunting with energy. I have begun to improve upon the relationship damage I have done and am enjoying time with my family. I have dealt with issues I’d been avoiding such as health insurance, bills and doctor’s appointments. I am a few pounds lighter and far less bloated, and back to exercising regularly.
Feedback is appreciated.

I wake up everyday with an energetic positive mindset and look forward to the day ahead. I feel amazing and free from negativity. Each morning I am taking the steps to be closer than I was the previous day to my dream life of freedom, love and adventure. I am happy with life

Feedback appreciated, Thanks!
The passion, drive and joy I feel in living my life grows and adds to itself with each moment I choose sobriety. Through sobriety, I long to engage fully with the people and world around me. I wake up each day excited for this. This passion leads to new opportunities and possibilities each day in my relationships, work and health that I say yes to with happy anticipation. It is a self-reinforcing cycle that is allowing me to squeeze the most out of this beautiful life, as well as discover and fulfill my purpose.

I was having difficulty writing a vision statement that inspired me. 🙁 Then I saw two of Dave’s suggestions to other participants and my soul lit up! So I combined and modified them to arrive at this statement:
“I wake up every day, with lust and energy to live life to the fullest. I am wildly fit, self-confident and radiate contagious enthusiasm!. I easily accomplish my personal and professional goals with my newfound passion, all of which carries over to creating an inspiring home where I am able to live, love and laugh with others, as I have always dreamed of doing. My sober heart and mind are magnets that attract more of everything I need or desire.”
******** Thank you Dave, for your wonderful suggestions. Feedback appreciated ********

Thanks for sharing CJB. Great vision statement – Simple and POWERFUL!

@cjb Tons of great stuff in this, and love the pseudo rhyme in the middle, but the “grip of alcohol” is powerful and something I would highly recommend changing. The main question to ask is what do you think of when you say this part of your statement? What images come to mind? I would guess they aren’t positive images.
I love the word free though and I love the start, so I might consider adding free and sober/sobriety somewhere in the last part, such as sober before example, or “of a person thriving in sobriety by Living His Passion and Purpose!
Anyway, great job!

Hi countrygirl . I love that you expressing the emotions and self love that come with Sobriety. Onward! You’re off to an exciting start! Congratulations. Sina

Your Vision Statement is beautifully and poetically expressed.
It foreshadows the Vision Solution, Day 29. I like the way you use the “present progressive” verb tense, ie, action words ending in -ing. It all adds up to you being ahead of the game! And in a very good way. I don’t see how you could go wrong.
As we all know, this Journey will test us. You seem as well prepared as the very best and brightest. Thank you! Onward, Sina
