3 Proven Tips for Staying Sober

Rebuilding your life once you become sober can and will be trying. Life and everything it throws in your path can be challenging for even the strongest human beings. With negativity coming from every angle, it can be hard to stay positive. Misery may love company but negativity does too. It spreads from person to person and tries its best to get under your skin.

Taking the path to sobriety is like being reborn. You finally get to see the world through clear sober eyes. No more waking up dreading what may or may not have happened the night before. There is an entire new world out there waiting for you. You just need to take the sober bull by the horns and ride off into the sunset.

Take It A Day At A Time

Every rising sun brings you a new day full of possibilities and opportunities. You can bet some of these opportunities will tempt you and some of them will test your strength. It is important to remember to take things one day at a time and focus on all of the positive things that can and will happen in your life from this point on. Focusing on the negative aspects will only make things much worse for you. Shrug them off and enjoy the good times.

Get A Strong Support Team

Making it through the first few months of sobriety on your own will be one of the toughest things you will have to endure. Having a strong and plentiful support team on your side will make things much easier. It could be friends or family members or it could be a group of people who have just come into your life. Support helps. Use it.

Keep A Journal

Very few people like the idea of keeping a journal, but a journal is an excellent way to keep track of your progress. It gives you a look back in time to see some of the obstacles you have already overcome. Being able to see and relive those trying times can give you the extra strength to stay clean and sober.

Each and every day that you stay sober gets you one step closer to achieving the life you deserve to live. Five years down the road and your drinking days will be nothing more than a blurry memory.
