Why Did You Get Sober?

The answer to this question may seem obvious; it could be that your life was a mess, and you lost your job, or maybe your partner was threatening to end your relationship. Maybe you sobered up because you were just sick and tired of feeling the way you were, day in and day out. No matter what the reason was that brought you to recovery, what matters most is that you stay.

Some of us came to sobriety kicking and screaming, whereas others were willing to do anything to stop feeling the pain of addiction. In meetings, you may hear someone say they got a nudge from the judge, but ended up staying because of how their life had changed. If you are considering treatment, your life can change, too. You don’t have to wait until your life is so miserable that you don’t want to wake up in the morning. If you’re already there, you’ve come to the right place.

Checking-in to treatment can be first day to a wonderful new life. Sobriety gives us the opportunity to live freely, and with choices. Those of us in recovery wouldn’t trade anything to go back to the prison of addiction. We have the choice to do and achieve anything we set our minds to. Regardless of the reasons that brought us here, it is the joy and freedom of sobriety that makes us stay. Until you’ve felt recovery, there is no way to describe how precious it is to those of us who work so hard to keep it.
