Finding Sobriety And A Positive Attitude

Updated on August 13, 2013

Have you ever just wanted to go out and find something that you knew you needed, but not really sure if you truly want it?

I have come across this type of searching many times in my life. I wanted to be happy as well as sober, but I wasn't quite sure of the best place to find such a thing as sobriety and being positive.

Negativity went strong inside myself along with alcoholism. Both going hand in hand, feeding each other with more misery day after day.

I always wondered if finding sobriety and a positive attitude would really change my life like so many people have told me.


My Homemade Video of Positive Attitude and Sobriety

Think Positive Always

5 Ways to Stay Positive

I am not real good on making videos but it does get the point across that when you have a Positive Attitude anything is possible to achieve including Sobriety if you truly want it bad enough!

If you go around in life living with Negativity, then I must say that more than likely your life will not amount to very much in the end. You MUST change your outlook on life and reach out and explore all the beauty that life has to offer.

You will never achieve Sobriety with out a Positive Attitude towards that goal. It really isn't as bad as I thought to do, when I was into my alcohol addiction. I changed my mind set and looked at things in a whole new way.  By doing so, I knew that I could beat my addiction to alcohol.

Anyone can do this if you set your mind to it and really want a better life for yourself, and also all of your family and friends that love and care for you.


So, the bottom line here is, if you really want a better life for yourself and others you have to make that change in your life. It will not be an easy thing to tackle, but anything good in life doesn't always come easy.

Set your goals high, go after those goals and never look back at your past addicted life. Give it your all to reach and achieve a Positive Attitude and to live a clean and sober life again.

Your body will thank you for the second chance you have given it, and when you have finally achieved what you set out to do, you will feel so proud and happy that you were able to beat the demons within.

      Positive attitude is a bullet heading towards the target. Negative attitude is a bullet stuck in the gun-barrel.

      Thanks saleheen for your comment. I have learned on my own just how important it was to be positive when I made my mind up to quit my alcohol addiction.

      So glad I did, I have a whole new life now being sober!
