Optimistic Friends

Leaning On My Optimistic Friends 

While on my journey to sobriety, leaning on my optimistic friends has taught me a lot of life's lessons. Most importantly, lean and lean often. While it's really nice to say "I have friends", it's also paralyzing because I know that I am routinely letting them down. I feel as though I am always taking and not giving anything back to my friends. My therapist and members of my group are telling me that it's okay and it won't be a permanent thing. The support that my friends give me sometimes feels like it comes with a price. As much as I want to deliver "great news" about my recovery, more days than not, there is nothing to report but the reality of the challenges that I face. Having this "crew" in the wings waiting for things to happen in a really quick fashion places a lot of pressure on me, self-inflicted pressure.

Some Days When I Wake Up

There are some days when I wake up the only thing that gets me through the day is knowing that my loved ones and friends really do care and love me. They want me to succeed and find happiness. I am getting better at finding the courage to talk honestly and openly about my challenges and the struggles I face with my friends. Sometimes all need to hear is "you're doing an amazing job, keep going, you've got this."

While I've come from such a lonely and quite place of isolation, I'm learning through teachings about self-care that I have come a long way. The all-around support that I receive each day is helping me to break down the barriers that have always kept me from sobriety.

Your Great Value and Worth

It might appear as though I don't always value my friends and loved ones as I continue to try and isolate myself, but please know of your great value and worth!

Community in Sober Living

Community in Sober Living

John Donne once wrote his Meditation, “No man is an island…every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main”. A man or woman who is on the journey of treatment and recovery for addiction cannot travel alone. This season of life is not a solitary, isolated one, but rather an opportunity to form real, intentional relationships. Who we surround ourselves with can make all the difference in the healing process.

Being Honest

Being honest with ourselves

During the course of our life, we have all at some time encountered someone who was not completely honest with us. In fact, if we are being truly honest right now, lies are a part of every addict’s life. Lies are a way to avoid reality and keep our true selves from coming to the surface.

Success in Chaos

Success in Chaos, Learning to Deal with Stress

Dealing with stress when you’re in recovery is more difficult than anyone else dealing with stress. You have to struggle with your own issues while at the same time having to navigate through the rough waters of outside dilemmas. You can learn to deal with this stress during recovery and achieve success in chaos without losing the place you’ve worked so hard to get to. With a few simple tools, you can relax when everything around you is moving faster than you can manage.

Finding New Friends

Finding New Friends During Your Transition to Sober Living

When you make the transition to your new sober living community, finding new friends is a crucial part of discovering how to move forward. You’ll understand new things about yourself and about living your life that may not be easy to get used to right away, but with a few friends in your corner, it won’t be as difficult as it seems.

Beating Addiction

Beating Addiction When the Holiday Blues Are Getting You Down

Whenever Christmas and New Year’s come around and all the other holidays that surround it, it’s easy to get bogged down in feeling alone or depressed. This is especially true when you’re in recovery and struggling to keep yourself together. Beating addiction when those holiday blues seep into your being is possible, and it doesn’t have to be as difficult as it seems. As the holiday season ends and Valentine’s Day comes around the corner, you won’t feel so lonely with just these few tools to help you get past it all.

Safe Environments

Living in a safe environment while working through addiction recovery is a critical part of this successful process.  These environments serve as an interim facility between in-patient rehab and a return to the person’s normal living situation.  The goal is to provide a living situation that also offers the support and structure that recovering addicts need to continue on their path to sobriety.  Many of these environments incorporate 12-step programs, which, if started in a rehab facility, help the person, continue on their path.

Living a sober life means different things to different people. At its core it means to maintain one’s recovery while making life affirming changes.  By living a sober life, we lessen the likelihood of a relapse.  Using a 12 step program to get sober is one of the many methods for achieving that goal, maintaining the sobriety can be done with the support of meetings and counselors as well as residential treatment facilities.

Did you know that it takes more than 30 days to create a lifelong habit?  Since we know that sober living requires daily attention, this is the reason it is so important to have a structured, consistent environment during the recovery process.  Sober Living Properties is a great example of this and a great place in which to establish and maintain your recovery.  Typically, a 1-month stay is a great start for sober living and a longer stay can improve the success rate even further.
