Loosid Sober Tip of The Day
Sobriety is never owned, it is rented… and the rent is due every day.
If you have been around recovery for a while, you may have heard this before. If you haven’t, it is something that you need to hear.
As discussed in previous tips, it is critical to understand that we can never stay sober today on yesterday’s sobriety.
Staying sober requires working a spiritual program every day, one day at a time.
The most important word in this sentence is ‘working.’
Working a spiritual program involves requires consistency, something we need to do for nearly anything else in life that we want to get… and keep.
The difference, however, is that for an alcoholic or addict, we need to GET sober and KEEP sober every day as our lives literally depend upon it.
Let’s look at a few things from our daily lives:
We need to eat nourishing food every day in order to GET and KEEP healthy.
The same also applies when we exercise consistently. We GET fit, we KEEP fit and if we stay consistent, we get even fitter. The more we exercise, the better we feel and the more improvements we see.
If we are lifting weights our muscles get stronger and grow.
If we play a sport, like tennis as an example, the more tennis we play, the better we get.
It is also important to note that, to continue to improve and get to the next level, we need to constantly surround ourselves with people who are actually ‘better’ than us.
Recovery is no different. It is always best to surround ourselves with people who have a recovery program that we admire and aspire to achieve.
We look for the daily things they do each and every day to remain emotionally sober.
To be clear, this does not in any way mean that we are to stay away from those who are new to sobriety or people who don’t yet have what we want.
In fact, the opposite is true. The people we surround ourselves with who are teaching us a strong spiritual program of recovery will encourage us to help the newcomer and others who need help as it is imperative that we give away what was so freely given to us.
