3 Great Ways to Stay Sober In 2015

The New Years celebrations have now become history. For many, ringing in the new year is nothing more than an excuse to overindulge in alcohol or drugs. Some may even wake up the next morning swearing they will never touch alcohol again. Most of the times this is nothing more than a thought and the partying starts all over again as soon as the sun starts to slip below the horizon. The new year is also a very difficult time for anyone struggling with alcohol. Everyone will be drinking at all of the great social gatherings and the temptations will be lurking around every single corner. Here are a few tips for avoiding a relapse during the upcoming year.

Go To More Fellowship Meetings
The start of a new year is an excellent time to kick the habit and start staying sober. One of the biggest problems addicts face is thinking they are all alone. This could not be further from the truth. Join a local recovery fellowship and attend meetings as often as possible. This is a great way to learn that you are not alone and talk to others who may be in the same exact situation as you.

Can You Remember the Bad Times?
Sobriety can be tough. Going through all of the bad times all over again can be even tougher. It is never a good idea to focus on all of the bad things that may have happened in the past, but remember those bad times can definitely help you avoid repeating them in the future.

Do You Keep A Journal?
Keeping a journal is not for everyone but it can be an excellent way to stay sober. Many people who choose to keep a journal quickly learn just how powerful it can become. It introduces great attributes like strength and motivation. It also helps you reflect on past situations that may have been good or bad. Old journal entries can also be an excellent way to track your overall progress during the long road towards sobriety.

The coming year does not need to be full of challenges. It is really full of countless opportunities for you to make yourself a better person and sobriety is just the first step.
