Positive Thoughts For Sober Living

Updated on August 12, 2013

Positive Thinking Changes Lives

Having positive thoughts for sober living will make a world of difference when you are trying to quit drinking alcohol. You will so surprised just how a positive attitude will help in so many ways to get you sober and not only having sobriety in your life, but anything you have wanted to achieve in life.

How do think your life will pan out in the future if you continue to think negative and live a negative life? Do you think negative thoughts when you are trying to accomplish something you want to do? This also includes getting sober and staying sober forever. Do you think the outcome will be a good one thinking in this manner? I bet it will be horrible and than more than likely you will be upset with yourself because what you wanted to achieve never worked out.

And why do your think it didn't work out the way you expected to work? Do you think being negative had anything to do with it?

Being positive in everything in life will change your life. You may not believe it, but you should really try to take the positive approach when your out to accomplish something in your life, such as sobriety.

Sober Living Is Awesome

If you happen to be addicted to alcohol and decide to try to get sober and you succeed with the help of a positive attitude you will be so surprised how sober living is a awesome life, but you will never know that feeling unless you give sobriety a chance in your life.

Do you really want to drink yourself to death? I don't think that this would be the life you really want, is it? If you do, your are crazy. Life is a precious gift given to all of us and to destroy it with alcohol is a crying shame. I am very sorry that I was so weak to let my addiction to alcohol run my life, and I am here to tell everyone, it doesn't have to happen to you.

So wake up and live life sober. You will never be sorry you quit drinking, but don't wait until it is too late. Take the bull by the horns now and change your live to a positive thing and not negative and being drunk 3/4 of the day like many do.

Having Sobriety in Your Life

Once you get a taste of what sobriety feels like again, you will never want to be that old person drinking alcohol everyday. Imagine how it would feel to wake up in the morning with a rested body and a clear head ready to tackle the world all being sober.

It is a wonderful thing to feel this way, but you will never know that feeling unless you give sobriety a chance. Think and act positive you will be able to overcome this horrible addiction to alcohol. It is worth a try and when you see that you have made it the first, second, third and so forth days sober your body will thank you believe me.

I know by my own experiences with drinking that alcohol is a very hard thing to give up, especially when you are used to having it in your life each and everyday. BUT, it is so possible for each and everyone of us to get sober using a positive attitude and having positive thoughts throughout each day.

I did it when I thought I couldn't and you too can change your life by getting sober.

      Virtual Treasures- Thanks for your comment and I think that is a excellent idea. The job I just got hired in also offers the same thing. I think it is a wonderful thing some employers offer.

      Another great hub. I attended a conference yesterday and was pleased to find out that my employer offers services to combat drinking BEFORE it gets out of control. I had never heard of that. They do not treat alcoholics, but instead refer them for a different type of therapy. They stick with individuals who want to control their drinking before it gets out of control.

      @ Ruth- Being positive Ruth has changed my life in more than one way. I has helped me get sober as you know, and is helping me each and everyday to stay sober. I work in a job going on 22 years in November and BTW I just resigned. I work with a women The President that has to be the most negative person I have ever known. All she takes about is how she can't wait to die. Can you imagine having to work in the situation Ruth. I can't take it anymore so I quit and I am starting in a new job that everyone is so positive, nice and Happy.

      Thanks for reading and your comment !!

      Positive thoughts attract other positive thoughts. It's the law of attraction at work here, and thanks for pointing this out. We soon notice that if we are positive in our thinking then our actions reflect this, hence we have a better and happier life. We attract other positive thinkers to reinforce what we have begun in our own life.

      Negative thinkers move away from us as though they want to wallow a little longer. No one likes to hang out with negative people. I'm in the positive thinking camp. So are you, Mark.

      just keep that positive attitude and you will conquer this addiction we have one and for all. Don't let anything or anyone stand in your way for long term sobriety. i am very proud of you and you should feel the same way. Stay strong to yourself and always believe in yourself.

      All the best my sober friend !!!


      @ Michele- Thank you Michele for your kind comment :)I know I am the happiest I have been in a long time and very proud of myself for what I have accomplished over the 2 1/2 years. Thanks for being there and being a friend !!

      Wonderful advice as usual. I have been sober for four months now and I have found when I have a positive attitude I don't feel the urge to drink as bad as when I'm caught up in negative feelings. Voted up and useful.
