Never Give Up Hope On Finding Your Sobriety

Updated on August 12, 2013

Never Give Up Hope

There are so many people that are addicted to alcohol in this world that want to be clean and sober and be able to find sobriety in their life, but many things in their minds hold them back from getting to that stage in their life of being able to surrender to their addiction.

Never give up hope on finding your sobriety because if you do and think there is no hope for you whatsoever, then you my friends are facing and long battle with your demons and your addiction to alcohol.

If you truly want to be clean and sober you must never give up hope on yourself in finding your sobriety,

Remember, sobriety will not come to you. It will not just fall into your lap. You must go after sobriety and never give up until you achieve it back into your life, that is of course if you truly want to be clean and sober. Without the true feeling of wanting to surrender to your alcohol addiction, than you are just, as they say, beating a dead horse, swimming against the tide, or sailing against the wing. However you want to call it, the fact is that you will be continuing down that path of self destruction and down to rock bottom.

Not Dangerous at All - Try It !

Some Tips That Helped Me Find Sobriety

Here are a few Tips that helped me find my Sobriety and hopefully some of these tips will help you in the quest of finding a new found LIFE!

  • First of all, I had to want sobriety back into my life and I knew that this was the main thing in order for me to change my life around.
  • I began to think positive and not negative anymore.
  • I gave myself more credit than I did in the past.
  • I weighed the pros and cons of drinking alcohol and came up with nothing good at all.
  • I began to get excited about my new found decision to get sober and looked forward to my new life.
  • I was proud of myself on the decision I had made to change my life.
  • I began to announced to my family and friends that I was surrendering to my alcohol addiction and was no longer embarrassed of my life.
  • I told myself that I will never give up hope on myself and respect myself and my body enough to go after what is rightfully mine - (my sobriety) and not let anything or anyone stand in my way to becoming clean and sober.
  • I started to think of all the happy things I would be able to do in a sober state of mind and to be able to enjoy my family like a Husband and Father should. This excited me to no end because I will now be sober and not under the influence of alcohol.

Go Get Your Sobriety Back

So, hopefully one of the above will help you get a positive attitude about finding your sobriety and a start of a new ahead. Believe me, you will never be sorry you decided to get clean and sober. Don't ever give up hope on yourself and tell yourself you CAN and WILL find sobriety.

All you have to do is want it so bad that you would be willing to do anything to achieve it. You're not alone if you think you are, and there are so many great Rehab.Centers all over the world that would be more than happy to help you. All you have to do is to Ask!

      @ Mark - Thanks so much for your comment. It really means a lot to me. Yes you are so right, writing does help me to stay sober, plus I love to write about my experiences in hopes that it will hit home to someone that had or has the same past problem we've have had. Life is great now Mark and it's really great to know people like yourself.

      We are not alone that's for sure. If we can spend the world that sobriety is very possible, you just need to want it.

      Thanks again Mark and it's a pleasure to put your book on my hubs.

      Mark, keep on writing. It clearly is of help to others and most importantly it is of help to YOURSELF. It's nice to hear that you are proud of yourself and what you have done. Anyone can be a drunk, but it takes a strong person (like you) to turn their life around and learn to enjoy sobriety.

      Mark Tuschel.

      P.S. Thanks for placing my book on your Hub page.

      My Stories, thank you so much for your comment. It took me a long time to finally realize something had to be done and fast, before it is too late. Sometimes it takes people awhile to realize that they must want to be sober and not forced into it from other people. You need to want it first before it will happen.
