sobrietyThe effects produced by drugs and alcohol can lead people right into addiction. Being able to forget about past trauma and daily stressors for a time can cause consumption to increase as tolerance builds up. Those who are addicted have no problem listing all the reasons why they keep using drugs and drinking alcohol, but we want to list some of the best reasons why you should get sober. 


You never have to feel that way again

Plain and simple, enduring addiction is painful, mentally, and physically. Drugs and alcohol can cause damage to the body and create wearisome consequences. The amount of wreckage that piles up can be overwhelming, but once you see the light at the end of the tunnel of recovery, you never have to go back to that dark place again. 


You show what you are made of

Keeping up with a drug and alcohol habit takes a lot of effort. Recovering from addiction takes an immense amount of strength. Adopting recovery as a way of life takes courage in admitting that you are powerless over drugs and alcohol. Taking the necessary steps to surrender shows that you are stronger braver than you think.


You realize you do better with support

Until you get into recovery, you can never understand the power of unity that is generated from staying sober one day at a time together. The support that you will get in a recovery program is undeniable. The kindness and genuine care that you will receive from the people you see in treatment and in recovery meetings are invaluable. They want nothing more than to see you get the help you need to stay sober. 


You are the example you always wanted to be

If you have struggled with a less-than-stellar reputation from the choices you have made under the influence, recovery can give you a second chance. Working a recovery program will instill the morals and principles that you never thought you could develop. Becoming the person you have wanted to be is realistic once you start changing everything. Your shining example will be a reality when you put down the substances and pick up the tools of recovery. 


Rather than believe sobriety is lame, you should try it before you knock it. There is nothing lame about living the life you were intended to live. Take into consideration the best reasons to get sober, and you will be pleasantly surprised how well recovery will work for you.
