What Will Freedom From Addiction Feel Like?

Many people who use drugs or alcohol love the effect it produces which makes it desirable to do over and over again. It relieves stress, fears, and worries, even if just for a moment. True freedom from addiction rests in knowing that addiction is not the end-all-be-all for your life. There is more available out there, ready for you to take hold of. Sobriety provides space to check yourself and realize being free of substances is the only way to live free.

Making the Choice

It is not an easy choice to make because many people who reach the point of being wrapped up in addiction feel that is all there is to life. They cannot imagine a life without drinking or using drugs. As real as this feeling may be, it is false and gives a sense that there is nothing more to life. Sobriety is about finding peace within yourself and outside yourself to achieve those goals and dreams which is only possible from under the stronghold of addiction.

Getting to Recovery

The hardest part of the initial journey of feeling freedom from addiction is seeking treatment. If you make it past the detox and withdrawal symptoms, perhaps you don’t know what else there is now. Being abstinent can feel really horrible because you are left without the crutch addiction provided for so long.  You are now face-to-face with yourself, warts and all. Freedom comes from knowing your true self and letting that person emerge in recovery.

Life Reimagined

Take an inventory of your life and think about what you want to accomplish. You will realize there are infinite possibilities available to you. After treatment, recovery begins. When you are ready, you can start to process those dreams and set some measurable goals to help you find success. True freedom from addiction feels like:

  • Letting go of the past
  • Healing past hurts and trauma
  • Coping with triggers and cravings positively
  • Finding new friends and spaces to enjoy
  • Creating a new life map of your sober journey

Life in recovery is not all bliss and ohm. There are challenges, relapse can happen, and yet you can still pick yourself back up and remember you are free. Free to decide addiction does not control you any longer. That you are able to make better decisions and create the life you’ve always wanted.
