Don’t be afraid to ask for help. There are alcohol and drug detox centers just waiting to help you. There are all kinds of things you can do to quit smoking too.

Deal with Stress, Negative Emotions and Thoughts

There are many successful people who are glad to help those who ask for it and will be more than happy to take you under their wing.

Even if there were bad things that happened, you can generally find a way to put a positive spin on them or turn them into good things. In other words, don’t dwell on the negative. Be thankful for everything that happened today and make a vow to yourself to be a better you tomorrow.
