Getting sober and staying sober could be one of the most difficult tasks that you will have to endure in your recovery. You must learn how to get from point A to point B without knowing how to navigate the bumps in the road that come your way. Without hope that there is something better for you in your sobriety, you will aimlessly wonder why you were victimized by drugs and alcohol. The starting point of your recovery should start with hope. Many assume that abstinence will do the trick, but hope is a cornerstone in recovery that is the key to help you to remain sober.
Finding hope in a hopeless situation, such as addiction, can seem rather oxymoronic for anyone who has no optimism left. Hitting rock bottom, or hitting close to it, will leave you with the choice to either keep getting loaded off fear or to find another alternative in recovery. If you choose to get busy in recovery, you may finally find the light in your life that promotes the changes you should make. Understanding that sobriety is possible may give you the glimmer of hope you need by taking some action.
Hope does not necessarily begin by thinking about it. You need to see it before you can believe that hope is there. Find a support group that can offer you hope by listening to what they have done to get sober and what they do each day to be proactive. Listening to others who have the the same issues share their experience, strength, and hope on how they turned lemons into lemonade can give you the inspiration that you need.
By laying out a vision for what you are planning to achieve is the fundamental to gaining hope. The possibilities are endless when you have a precise purpose to shoot for and can give you motivation to do what is necessary for your sobriety.
Until you acknowledge that your situation, you will stay in denial as to what is actually going on with your addiction. Considering that you are exactly where you are supposed to be will make life much easier than trying to continue fight everything that comes in your way.
