How To Stay Sober When You Think Your Life Has Turned Upside Down
Getting Sober And Staying Sober
Here is how to stay sober when you think your life has turned upside down. So many people that have become clean and sober have had many things happen in their life to make them want to drink again, and to make things all better, but you know as well as I do that alcohol fixes nothing.
No ones life is perfect, and all of us have things that happen to us, some good and some not to good.
The things that are good, ex-alcoholics want to celebrate because something great has happened in their life. The not so good things that happen in an ex-alcoholics life is they want to drink in hope to drown the problem, or simply make that problem disappear out of their life.
It is so hard to stay sober when someones life has turned upside down. I know because a few things not so good has happened in my life since I have been sober. To be perfectly honest, the first thing I thought about when these bad things happened was to drink alcohol.
Staying As Strong As You Can
When your life is turned upside down for any reason, you need to stay as strong as possible so that your past inner demons will know that no matter what happens you will not allow them back into your life again.
You need to have a complete positive attitude and not let anyone or anything stand in your way of your sobriety. Believe me, I know how hard it is to stop the urge and temptation to drink alcohol when things are not going the way you would like them to go.
Trust me, my demons have knocked on my door more than one time since I have been sober, but I refuse to let them back in. I have worked very hard to get and stay sober just as many of alcoholics have to find their sobriety and to keep it.
Just because you may think your life is turning upside down, that is no reason to turn back to alcohol, because alcohol will not help as you all know.

I Write To Stay Sober
I write to stay sober, and to feel as if I am helping someone out there in the world that is struggling with an addiction.
I know what pain they are going through, and I write to try and ease that pain, and to let the world know that they are not alone by any means.
Never give up trying to get and stay sober, because anything is possible in life if you want it bad enough. I realize how hard breaking an addiction to alcohol or drugs is, but I did it when I never thought I could, and so can you my friends. all you need to say is "THAT'S IT, i AM DONE DRINKING!"
When you drink alcohol, you never realize that it makes you depressed more than you might be before you started to drink. I never thought it would effect me in that manner, but it did. Watching all these latest deaths of celebrities makes me realize that I stopped drinking and changed my life before something drastic would of happen in my life.
Depression and alcohol do not mix and it is a recipe for self destruction and possibly death. get help for your depression and help for your addiction. Never be embarrassed that you are depressed or you have an addiction. Help is out there for everyone. You just need to ask for that help!
If you are sober, and think your life is turning upside down, and you are thinking about going back to drinking to ease the pain of what's going on in your life, think twice before you pick up that drink of alcohol. If you do it will be the worse thing you could ever do to yourself. So, think before you drink Please!
Think before you drink and remember what kind of life you had when you drank and abused alcohol. Think back of what you put your family, spouse and friends through while you drank. I am sure it wasn't pleasant for them to see you drinking your life away and abusing alcohol.
I know I put my wife and family through pure hell when I drank, so when I think my life is turning upside down and things are not going the way I'd like them to, I think back at those years of abusing alcohol and that alone stops me right in my tracks for touching a drop of alcohol.
