Your Worse Day Sober Is Better Than Your Best Day High or Drunk

Updated on May 28, 2014

What Is Worse?

Have you ever heard the saying, "your worse day sober is better than your best day high or drunk."

Now being clean and sober since 2009 I can assure you that there is no better day high or drunk that can beat your worse day sober.

Granted, I have had many bad days sober that I was completely miserable and depressed wondering if I drank alcohol again would this bad day sober be better?

When you stop and think what you are about to do by drinking again, you admittedly stop in your tracks and say to yourself, "there is no way if I drank alcohol right this moment things will get better, and all will be okay."

Everyone that has been sober for some time like I have been often gets those urges or temptations to drink alcohol again, but we all have to be strong enough to say NO to our past demons that are still inside our bodies waiting for that special moment we break and start drinking and using again.

We can not ever let ourselves be less strong than our demons. Once you back down, and give in, you are doomed and the cycle of drinking and abusing alcohol and drugs will be your way of life once more until you decide to stop and start your sobriety back once more.

So in your opinion, what do you think is worse? I my opinion, a bad day sober is far better than any day high or drunk.

We All Face Our Demons Once Again

We all face our demons sooner or later once we have stop drinking or using, but our job is to never let our demons back in our life again, even though they are pushing us to start our addiction back up again. They are lost in our bodies, and are starving for drugs or alcohol that we once fed them.

Even though many times we think while being in recovery, living life sober sucks, but does it really when we truly think about our sobriety?

I can tell you from my experiences of drinking and abusing alcohol, to being clean and sober for almost 5 years now, that there is nothing more greater than living a sober life. There is no comparison whatsoever, even though many times we make think that while we drank or used, life was much more fun.

That is not true at all, and for anyone that drank or used can honestly say that sobriety rocks. You have a life that so many alcoholics or drug addicts wished they had, but the problem with those folks is that they haven't got that courage yet to stop their addiction and start a new life as we have. If they only would want to change their lives, and get out of denial, their lives will be like ours, the one that made it.

I'll Take All The Bad Days Sober Over The Good Times Drunk Or High

You can throw all the bad days sober at me all at once, over any good day drunk or high. If you are like me, and thought about this, can you honestly say drinking and using is better than a sober day in your life?

I bet you would never say this to yourself or anyone else, even though sometimes you may feel it inside you. If you have pushed away the urge and temptation to drink or use again as I have many times during this process of being in recovery, you are doing a great job of keeping those demons away.

We all have bad days while living a sober life, and believe me, any bad day sober is better than any good day high or drunk.

Life will always have it's ups and downs, but no matter how hard life gets, or how bad your life is, it is very important not to let your guard down and start abusing drugs and drinking alcohol again. Our inner demons are just waiting for us to break down and drink and use again, so stay as strong , if not stronger than you are right now.

Life Is Beautiful

      I think the message you wrote is abslutely right. I am not an alcoholic, but I have lived with them. My father was sober for 40 years before he passed away, and he was surely a changed man.
