Sober Living Starts At Home
Everyone knows that some people that have entered a Rehabilitation Center for the treatment of an addiction sometimes have to enter into sober living thereafter.
This is to help the individual to stay sober if they or the councilors feel they may relapse after treatment in a Rehab. Center. Many people do very well in sober living and their lives change all for the better as each day and week passes.
For myself, being addicted to alcohol for so long and now in the recovery process I was fortunate enough that I did not need to enter a Rehab Center. I took upon myself to just try this sobriety on my own with no help, but my mind and my God.
With these two things I was able to achieve what I thought was the impossible for me. I got myself in a position to try to figure out and prepare for my sobriety.
The very first thing was to set my mind into a positive attitude and tell myself that I must surrender to my addiction and say to myself, I may never ever pick up a drink of alcohol again. When I was okay with that decision I then started to plan my attack on my demons that controlled me as well as everyone that has any kind of an addiction, whether it be drugs or alcohol.
When I finally realized where I was in my life, it all could of been avoided only if I had the willpower and the strength to not abuse the alcohol as I did.
I thought to myself that sober living starts at home and I didn't let that happen. We are sometimes too weak to stay sober and then realize that our addictions that we created and chose to do, started at home, rather than being clean and sober starting at home and staying at home.
