6 Mistakes that are costing you your sobriety
Sobriety is hard - there is simply no other way to put it. Finding the strength to make the right moves in your life to become free from addiction is tough enough but there some things you might be doing to sabotage your own success. These 6 mistakes are the ones people make the most.
1. Comparing Yourself
You need to understad that your path, road or progress towards sobriety is your own. Comparing yourself to someone else is the worst way to establish your own journey.
2. Friends / coworkers
Your friends and coworkers aren't going to understand what you're going through or how to help. Don't rely on them to be able to assist you.
3. Having a Crap Diet
This one is so incredibly important and we've written about it before. Diet can help you feel amazing or terrible. You have to make good choices.
4. Expecting Instant Results
Remember when we said it was a journey earlier? Yeah the journey is going to take you a while. You can't expect instantaneous results and you have to understand it will take a while.
5. Isolating yourself
While we mention friends and coworkers not understanding, it can be important not to isolate yourself either. Don't go hanging around a bunch of coworkers or friends who drink a lot but definitely don't put yourself in isolation either.
6. Being too confident
You might feel great after a couple of weeks of sobriety but this is the major danger zone. Always be on the lookout for triggers or situations that might compromise your sobriety.
