We hear all the time, "It doesn't matter what you think, it's how you act." That sentence is very important especially in early sobriety. When we first get sober, sometimes the obsession to drink will still be there. When talking about thoughts and actions, we need to not listen to what our minds are telling us. We can not drink, and not drinking is the action we need to take.
Alcoholism and drug addiction are described as a physical disease of the body and a mental obsession of the mind. After we have overcome the physical part and we are sober, we have to begin to live our lives productively. It doesn't matter what we think it matters what we do.
