Tips On How To Deal With A Breakup Without Alcohol

For many people the first thing they do after a breakup is go to the nearest bar and cry their hearts out as they drink, or lock themselves up at home with a bottle of wine and drink themselves silly. The truth of the matter is that it may feel right for that moment but in the long run it does nothing to help you deal with the pain.

According to various studies, how you treat yourself after a heartbreak will determine how fast or slow your healing process will take. This is because heartbreak is just as painful as physical pain. Instead of depending on the bottle to deal with the pain, here’s how to deal with it soberly.

This is because you will need a shoulder to cry on, someone to listen and not judge and someone to be objective. Besides that you will need a team of people to surround yourself with to keep things off your mind and to simply give you a reason to smile.

5. Celebrate – Go out have fun, dance and don’t indulge in alcohol because chances are you will drunk dial or text them. Go on a vacation if you want to celebrate your single status.
