Living a Life Of Sobriety

Updated on August 13, 2013

SOBRIETY

Sobriety, whether you know it or not is the most fabulous thing in the world. When people like myself are so used to drinking alcohol each and everyday, we tend to forget the true feeling of sobriety. I know I sure did and since I finally surrendered to my alcohol addiction I can appreciate living a life of sobriety.

Many people that are addicted to alcohol or drugs think that anyone that lives a clean and sober life is no fun, and pretty much square as you would call it. I used to frown upon those that didn't drink alcohol and now looking back, boy was I a fool to even think so badly of those that didn't drink alcohol.

Now having my own sobriety back into my life I can see how those that I made fun off because they didn't drink had such a wonderful life and now I am joining them, living a life of sobriety.



It's a Wonderful Life Being Clean and Sober

We all can have a wonderful life being clean and sober even though you may not think so. I have learned that drinking alcohol is just a crutch to lean on for the people that are insecure such as myself, back in the day. We think that alcohol makes us braver and give us more self esteem while we are under the influence, but in all do respect, it is not true at all. We tend to sometimes make fools out of ourselves while drinking alcohol and it truthfully doesn't help with braveness or really anything even though we may think so.

Even though you may think life isn't fun at all unless you are drunk or high is totally wrong to even insinuate, because your life is the best it ever will be by living it clean and sober. Just think of all the things you can do, and do them legal, safe, happy and healthy while you are living life sober and for most you will remember those fun times and not black out and forget what even happened the day or night before.

It is so much fun and life is great now living it sober and believe I was the worst in thinking that life sucks without being drunk or high. I have learned differently now and I am so glad I surrendered to my addiction to alcohol as should you be proud and happy if you decide to surrender to your addiction.

It really is not as hard as i thought to do. Believe me I thought I would never see another sober day in my life again. I really fooled myself. I didn't give myself enough credit thinking that I could get clean and sober.

Maybe you should try the life of sobriety and see for yourself. No harm in trying, but make sure you have the desire and pure determination to get the ball rolling and start living your dreams and living them clean and sober.
