What Is It Like To Live A Clean And Sober Life
When someone has been addicted to drugs or alcohol for so long they tend to forget how it feels to live a clean and sober life. I was one of those people that were addicted to alcohol and even though I was a functioning alcoholic I knew that there was something missing in my life which we all call sobriety.
I speaking from my own experiences and I am sure that every alcoholic feels the same way I do. We often wonder what it would feel like living a normal life and living it sober. Yes, we wonder about it but so many of us do nothing about it. We are very content with the life style that we live, but many of us deep down inside know that drinking alcohol each and everyday of our lives is just not normal and somewhere down the road our addiction to alcohol will catch up with us and put us down faster than you can shake a stick.
I ask you, "what is it like to live a clean and sober life" and my answer to you is surrender to your addiction and try out sobriety. You will thank yourself in the end, believe me.
You will never know what living clean and sober feels like until you step out of that box, the box holding your addiction to alcohol in not allowing you to escape to freedom and find your sobriety again.

WHAT SOBRIETY FEELS LIKE TO ME
After years of drinking alcohol and never thinking about the what the future would be living as an alcoholic, I came to realize that I was basically slowing killing myself and everything around me such as my family and all those that loved and cared about me.
This brought me to a point in my life where I had to make the biggest decision of my life and that was should i stay being an alcoholic and just wait for something to happen bad to me or someone else that I may have caused harm to, or should I step out of my box and surrender to my demons and start to live a clean and sober life again?
well by you reading this I would imagine that you now know I chose to surrender to my addiction and live sober.
As I have said before, people addicted to drugs or alcohol forget what the feeling is to be sober and by forgetting this feeling we miss out on so many wonderful things that life has to offer and the sad part of it is that we the alcoholics really don't care what we miss out on as long as we have our alcohol we are very happy and content, "or are we?"
- Life is so precious so why ruin it with an avoidable addiction.
- I see much more clearer and can focus on what I truly want out of my life.
- i now love and respect myself more than ever.
- I appreciate everything I have in my life more than I ever have.
- I am so much closer to my wife and children and now spend quality time with them.
- I am up for anything at the spare of the moment instead of putting the addiction before all.
- I am making those dreams and goals I had a reality now.
- I am not embarrassed or a shamed of myself anymore.
You may ask, " what is it really like to be clean and sober" and i am here to tell you, being clean and sober and having sobriety back into your life is the most AWESOME FEELING in the world. Try it, you might just fall out of love with your addiction and fall in love with sobriety!
