Why Can’t I Stay Sober (part 2)

Maybe you are hanging with the wrong people. 

It could be your environment is bad for your sobriety. Are you hanging around bars for example? There is an old saying…”with whom you assemble you will resemble.” I believe that this is true.

If you want sobriety you have to find people that have it and learn how they got it. Same as making a million dollars, you want to find people that have done this if that is what you want. Sobriety is the same.  Prioritize that you have a problem and find people that have solved the problem.  There you go.

Why Can’t I Stay Sober? (Part 1)

 

 

 

The very first part of staying sober is admitting that you have a problem. If you can’t do that you are always in danger of “picking up” as they say. A point in time will come along where you play with the thought that you can still drink and if you go for it your resolve is just weakened if not just all gone.

Many people fool themselves that way. How do you figure out if you have a problem? The 20 Questions is all over the net. Take them and see but first ask yourself why would would even ask. Most people either drink or don’t and don’t worry that they may have a problem.

Another way would be to put yourself in a room with people who used to have a problem but don’t know. See what they say. There are lots of groups available, AA, Smart Recovery, educational sessions at treatment centres.  Look up Youtube videos of speakers on addiction.

First see if you have a problem then you can move on from there but you have to find out and be truthful with yourself. Either you do or don’t and chances are you do. If you do have a problem you can do something about it. Stay tuned. …….Day before New Years, good time to find out too!
