Happy woman

When you embark on the journey to recovery, you are actively deciding to experience the greatest pleasures that life can offer. While finding peace after substance use is a long and sometimes challenging road, it is worth the effort. Drugs, alcohol, and other substances are the source of your problems, not the solution. Therefore they hinder you from attaining true peace. Understand, there is never a moment when you overcome all the past trauma, anxiety, and depression entirely. Recovery takes being able to revisit difficult thoughts and emotions and what you value to remind you when your efforts toward sobriety are worth pursuing. When you find balance, this is when you can begin to attain inner peace. 

Surrendering to a Higher Power 

Surrendering to a higher power can take on many meanings, but it is ultimately defined as you coming to terms with the idea that you cannot control everything – that there is something bigger than yourself. It can lend a great deal of comfort.

Being Present

When you accept the past and stop trying to predict the future, you become free to live in the moment. It can allow you to connect with others and enjoy experiences together. Mindfulness can also offer you this freedom.

Accepting Who You Are

When you learn to see beyond what you perceive as being successful or a good person, you give yourself the ability to accept your shortcomings and forgive yourself for your mistakes.

Silence the Inner Critic

Recovery will help you reconnect with the things you enjoy. It will also lead you on a journey to discover something new about yourself. These discoveries breed confidence and help to silence your negative inner voice.

Finding peace means staying consistent and active with your recovery. The closer you get to discovering your true self, the more peace you will gain. You will move freely and without worry about how others perceive or define you. You know who you are, and this is a peace like no other.
