Bring the Body, and the Mind Will Follow

Just keep putting one foot in front of the other, and the rest will take care of itself. This is a solid piece of advice in recovery, especially when you’re newly sober and you’re fighting to stay that way. After detox, our minds are a battlefield of what we knew and what feels comfortable—drinking and using—and what we’re being told to do and how to do it—don’t drink or use, no matter what. Not drinking and not using is a foreign concept, but if we keep doing the next right thing, it gets easier and more familiar.

People in recovery may suggest that you to go to at least 90 meetings in 90 days. If you follow their advice and commit to going, even when you don’t want to, you may just hear something that resonates. All of us have those moments when we’re just not feeling comfortable or motivated in our recovery, but it is in these moments that putting one foot in front of the other is imperative. If you keep doing what you’re supposed to in your recovery, those moments will pass and you will hold onto all the hard work you’ve put into getting sober. There is a reason we focus on “one day at a time” in recovery. Life can only come in day long intervals, from one moment to the next. We take life as it comes to us, unable to go back in the past or jump ahead to the future.

If you’re not sober, but want to be, it’s the same idea. You have to take action toward getting help, even though your disease is screaming at you to stay loaded. It’s just one foot in front of the other: pick up the phone and call us. After that, everything will take care of itself. We know how powerful the voice of addiction is. It tells you one thing, while your heart tells you another. People who are successful in their recovery listen to their heart, and will do absolutely anything to stay sober, even when they don’t feel like it.
