    What are some natural and/or holistic ways a person can achieve or maintain sobriety?

    Welcome to hubpages! You've got a great set of hubs going, showing lots of expertise. I'm curious to see the hub you'll write to answer this question smile

    BizGenGirl. Thank you so much for your interest in my hub pages. While not an expert in the holistic approach method, I felt challenged to write a hub answering your question. After doing some research, I came to the conclusion that I would be doing the online community a disservice by writing on this topic.
    As much as I wanted to step up to the challenge to prove myself, I can't lol. I have attached a link to an article I found very helpful. Please feel free to ask any more questions as I do love the subject of recovery as a whole. Sorry I could not be of more help to you.

    BizGenGirl, I'm very interested in the question that you raise. I had an uncle who was an alcoholic. And I had a wake-up call several years ago.

    I'd read about the putative health benefits of a glass of red wine with supper. I tried it, and enjoyed it. After several months of having a nightly glass of wine, I felt like having a second glass. Eventually, I had a jones for half a bottle per night. Then my inner voice chimed in, "Hey, wait a minute!"

    I was never a real alcoholic, but I felt that I was at risk. Since that epiphany, I've tried to be more mindful of how food, exercise, and everything else affects my well being in general--including my tolerance for alcohol.

    At the moment, the idea of having a drink is slightly repulsive. And I have a good idea why.

    As a person with Sensory Integration Dysfunction, I've found that my continually evolving Sensory Diet has been very helpful, in many ways. By the way, the touchy-feely, New Age, shotgun approach is meaningless for me. 

    If I wanted to get together with a friend for a drink tomorrow (which I haven't done for a long time), I know what steps I could take in order to tolerate the alcohol. Again, I'm not an alcoholic, and I'm not on any kind of bandwagon.

    I'd like to have some kind of forum where I could discuss what works for me, as an at-risk non-alcoholic, and see if I can be helpful to people who are less fortunate than I am, in that respect.
