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.”
There comes a point in sobriety where you have to force yourself to confront difficult emotions without any crutches. These are not easy moments, nor are they completely unfamiliar to you. In fact, these are the same thoughts and memories that would, in another life, drive you to open the bottle and get blasted. But now that you’re sober, there’s a new, naked vulnerability invading your inner world and it’s going to get harder before it gets easier.
