credibilityAddiction makes a person exhibit unhealthy behaviors, including irresponsibility and a lack of accountability. Once people decide to finally get sober, they may not receive immediate assurance from their loved ones. People close to an addicted person may doubt that they can remain sober for any amount of time. If you are expecting everyone to believe that you are a new person, you must first prove your credibility. 


Keep persisting 

If you want to show that recovery is your real purpose, you have to keep going. There will be a rollercoaster of emotions that come with your new way of life, but you will be able to get through them with perseverance. Trust the process and give yourself some grace when you think you are failing in your efforts. If you are staying sober today, you are doing the best thing for your sobriety by overcoming addiction one day at a time. 


Keep practicing

As with anything, you have to put your recovery into action. Practicing each day to prevent relapse will assist you from slipping when the obsession to drink or use comes up. Use the analogy of recovery as a fire drill. You practice a fire drill so that when a fire occurs, you have a plan in place to keep everyone safe. In that same manner, you practice recovery every day to keep from letting your addiction take over your life again. 


Keep resolving

Now that you have to keep going and keep practicing, you must give away what was so freely given to you. The solution of recovery is to be of service to those who want to recover from drug and alcohol addiction just like you. Your experience, strength, and hope are golden and can give others the answers they are looking for in their own recovery. Others will believe you’re serious about your recovery after observing the amount of time you spend helping others to also recover. 


You need to keep in mind that you must continuously show the “cred” in your ability to stay sober. Once you walk the walk instead of just trying to talk the talk, you can show everyone that you mean business. Your journey in sobriety is a beautiful thing, and others are sure to take notice once your credibility to recover shines through.
