First, let me start by saying that I am in no way a perfect example of what I’m about to preach to you all today, but I am trying! And that all I want you to do for now. Start trying to make good nutrition a priority in your sobriety.
No matter how old we are, peer pressure can still have incredible influence over our lives. Our friends put pressure on us, and we do it back to them. It can be pressure to have a piece of cake when we’re trying to eat better, pressure to stay out one more hour even though you have work the next day, or pressure to drink alcohol when you’re trying to stay sober.
When you first get sober, it can be difficult to know what you’re supposed to do for fun. What sober activities are available beyond binge watching Marie Kondo’s Tidying Up on Netflix while you determine whether or not this old sweatshirt sparks joy?
In yesterday’s post, I introduced to you the idea of emotional sobriety. Today, I really want to focus on how you get there so that you can avoid becoming the dreaded “dry drunk.”
Now that you’re nearly a week into Dry January, it’s important to take some time to reflect on why you drink in the first place and the effects alcohol has on your body when you do.
Have you ever bothered to think about this?
I’ve written before about how to get people to support your sobriety, so today I want to tackle how to handle people who either don’t support your sobriety or aren’t taking it seriously.
