This podcast is all about sharing positive advice and wisdom for daily life in recovery. In this episode, I’m going to share 7 different positive things you realize about yourself when you get sober.
So, substance abuse and addiction can take a toll on the way others view us and the way we view ourselves. In fact, drug abuse itself is often a symptom of low-self esteem and self-hate. On the other hand, getting sober (and staying that way) is just as much a physical process as it is an emotional and psychological one. It’s no easy feat but the endeavor is truly a life-changing experience.
Many great things happen when you get sober and some of the best things aren’t necessarily tangible. Instead, they happen on the inside. If you are new to sobriety or you’re thinking about ditching the harmful substance abuse habits in your life, here are seven positive things you might realize about yourself when you get sober.
#1. You can trust yourself.
#2. You can be a morning person and be productive.
#3. You can cope.
#4. You have self-control.
#5. You can be a good friend.
#6. Good things can happen to you.
#7. You have interests and skills that you never knew about.
