I’d consider that a change; however, I’ll always be an alcoholic and there’s always going to be a pull towards it. I can only speak for myself, but I hope this change doesn’t revert back.

The natural change we see is of behaviour and activities, otherwise that of mindset is a slow process like evolution but there are swifter methods.

I think people can change dramatically if and when they want. LikeLike Reply Everything is changing each and every second in this universe. Nothing is meant to be still. That’s why we change too. Our thoughts, body etc. We can’t choose to change or not, it’s a part of nature. Change happens even of we’re not aware of it.

Making the choice to change – not just because of peer pressure, or the weather or whatnot – that’s the tricky bit. It takes time to root out the old codes, and rewrite them or create patches to fix what no longer serves. It’s intensive, and yes, there can be some backsliding into old habits.
