5 practical tips for living a great life while sober

Sobriety is often seen as a life of torment and torture because you have given up something you thought you could never live without before - drugs or alcohol.

Yes, I concede that it can be a very tough journey, but then, it is still possible to live your best life as a recovering addict. Though the journey is one that continues throughout the rest of your life, it is one that you can succeed at all the same.

I cannot say that I completely understand your experience, because each person’ own differs. However, I can give you a few tips that will make the journey easier. 

1. Make lifestyle changes

They don’t have to be drastic but a few changes in your life like where you hang out, exercising some more to get in shape, hobbies, etc. will go a long way in changing a lot. It will give you something new to focus on and look forward to. 

2. Change your circle

The chances are that your old habits ruined your healthy relationships and replaced them with toxic ones. These toxic relationships will not give you the kind of support you need and will most likely cause a relapse. 

3. Work on old relationships

Now that you doing much better, it is time to take steps to reach out to the people you may have hurt. They may not willingly let you back in but the effort matters.

4. Face the past

To move on, you have to address the guilt and shame that you feel. If you hide these emotions, they can overwhelm you. Therefore, you must take definite steps to face the past and deal with it.

5. Research

If you are going to remain sober then you will have to do your homework to learn all you can about staying sober. Therefore, join support groups both online and in your immediate community.
