Where is sober living
If you are like me, your thoughts run the gamut of finding an exit strategy to help you get sober, but you are also beginning to question whether you will ever be able to truly live in a sober community. You want to be successful, but you are concerned that you will not be able to. It seems to be a losing battle all around. In my own personal experience, I experienced many difficulties while trying to live in a clean community. Sometimes it seemed as if a variety of negative influences were influencing my own life and feelings in a way that was harmful to my sobriety. My first experience with an alcohol-free environment was in my early twenties, and I cannot even remember why. I know that the first place I visited was a rehab, but I can’t remember the first time I had an urge to drink. As a result, I may have begun drinking even sooner than I should have, and my alcohol addiction has been a big part of what is keeping me from being a happier person. So, for those who are attempting to find themselves in a sober environment, here are some tips for success. There are many resources out there, and most of them will offer you services for the sake of sobriety, rather than actually help you achieve sobriety. I don’t know why anyone would ever promote sober living as a service rather than a goal. Some offer so much help to sober people that they feel obligated to give out advice, tips, referrals, etc. In my opinion, these are just bait and switch tactics. This attitude has one thing in common with many living their lifelong goal of sobriety, but is something else altogether. Their attitude is based on a false premise, and for this reason, they do not succeed. If you are truly willing to commit to your sobriety, then there are other things that you need to know that can help you in your journey. Some of these tips are very simple, while others may seem to be fairly complex. The very best place to start your journey toward sober living is to make a list of your goals. Then, identify all the obstacles that stand in your way of achieving that goal. This might seem to you like you are assigning negative consequences to yourself, but it really is quite simple. Look at your list of obstacles, and ask yourself if they are capable of impacting your sobriety, and if they are, how many? This is the foundation on which you can build the rest of your sobriety journey. The list of obstacles you face can be in your head, or it can be in reality.
