Living Sober One Day At A Time
For anyone that has an addiction to alcohol that wants sobriety back into his/her life needs to know that living sober one day at a time is a must. Take that first step to the road to recovery and take one step at a time.
You must first make up your mind if this life of sobriety is what YOU want and you are not being forced into this life of living sober. It is so important that you the alcoholic wants to change your life, and not just doing it because of a threat from someone that loves and cares for you, such as your spouse or dear friends or family.
You have to have a strong willingness, desire and determination to get and stay sober. If you are not sure whether you want this type of life, then in my opinion you may not be ready for long term sobriety. You have to have it in your heart and soul that this is what you want for the rest of your life, to be sober forever.
Alcohol addiction and stopping drinking is no game. It is the real deal. Anyone can stop drinking if and only if you want a better life, not only for yourself, but everyone else that is in your life.
Living life sober is a wonderful thing. I know that now since I stopped drinking alcohol almost three years ago, and I couldn't be happier. Your health will improve and your body will start to heal itself slow, but sure.
There is no need to rush things. This life of sobriety will come one day at a time. For myself the first month or so was torture for me because I started to doubt myself whether or not I would be able to stay sober, and that reason was, I blew my sobriety once before and I believe the reason for that was, I simply wasn't ready to change my life and live it sober without ever having another drink for the rest of my life.
There can not be any cheating when you have made your mind up to get sober and stay sober. It is either all or none my friends. I know it sounds stupid, but if you are an alcoholic, as I am, you can not even take one sip of the poison that got us all here in the first place or you will be back to square one. SO, it is NO Drinking whatsoever for the rest of your life.
If you are willing to agree to those terms and are not afraid of leaving one of your best friends (alcohol demons) behind, then you are on the right path, and on your way to recovery. Sure the urge will come and go from time to time as it did and still does for me. The trick is that you must be STRONG and have the strength to say NO to all the urges that may come over you through the years to come.
What you must do in order to have success in your sobriety is to make up your mind if this is the life you wish to have. Then take that first step, don't look back at your past and take one day at a time and before you know it you will be counting years of sobriety, as I am and many others are that have decided to change their life and live it sober forever.
Keep that Positive Attitude always, and this will help you to stay sober. Never say, "I can not do this, it is too hard to stay sober." Believe in yourself and love yourself enough to stop drinking alcohol and start enjoying your life, families and friends.
