There may come a time when someone who has an addiction to drugs and alcohol must stop doing what they are doing. Most people do not come up with the idea to get sober on their own. Usually there will be a huge red flag that waves in front of them to let them know that they cannot keep going in this manner. Whether the court intervenes, a loved one threatens to leave, or an addict get sick, the time to halt in their addictive behaviors becomes apparent to keep their consequences from getting any worse. Considering putting roots into their recovery is one of the best ways they can remain sober.
Establish some solid ground
Addiction is like a roller coaster ride. Sometimes you are up and sometimes you are down with no solid ground to land on. This chaotic lifestyle can keep an addict out there doing the same thing over and over. Establish a foundation that you can build upon. Use your recovery tools to help you get your footing into early sobriety.
Construct your spiritual tool kit
Getting together your recovery tools to use in a time of need is important. You never know when a trigger or craving will catch you off guard. If you equip yourself to better fight off the nasty obsession, you will know what action you will need to take to stay sober and prevent relapse.
Being part of a 12-Step program such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA), can get you in the middle a support system to help you feel grounded in recovery. Being a part of a like-minded group can keep you accountable to others in the program.
Use the principles
Having newfound standards to live by will make it easier to keep on track. Conducting yourself with a moral compass can show you how to make better decisions and have improved relationships with others.
Self-care is vital
You probably did not take care of yourself during your addiction. Now that you are in recovery, you should participate in your self-care. Eating healthy, getting enough sleep, drinking water, getting routine check-ups, taking time for physical activity, and enlarging your spirituality are all ways that you can strengthen your mind, body, and soul.
When your world gets shook up, the first thing you may think of is to let go of it despite everything you have worked so hard for. Having roots in recovery can be the very thing that can keep your sobriety going strong.
