Loosid Sober Tip of The Day
We don’t know what we don’t know.
Much like anyone who does anything for the first time, everyone comes into recovery knowing the same thing. Nothing.
- We have no experience of what it is like to be sober.
- We have no experience on what it takes to get (emotionally) sober.
- We don’t know what it’s like to stay sober.
The next 3 days are going to concentrate on these 3 aspects of sobriety.
If you are starting your journey, you have not experienced any of these 3 parts of sobriety.
If you have been sober a while, while this may not be new to you, it is equally as important as the people with the strongest recovery programs know that when we find ourselves ‘off the beam’, we need to go back to the very basics that got us sober in the first place.
It is equally as important to remember what it felt like to be sober for the first time.
So what does it feel like to be sober?
Being sober for the first time may feel very strange. This is because we are living life on life’s terms for the first time. We used to live on alcohol’s terms, or whatever our drug of choice was.
We feel the pain without numbing it. We feel the joy without trying to accelerate it. This can be very uncomfortable at first.
Here’s the good news… the ‘getting sober’ part will make you feel better than you ever imagined. It’s called recovery.
Tomorrow we will discuss getting sober, which must happen in order for us accomplish the third part… staying sober.
If you are experiencing ‘being sober’ for the first time, know that it is completely normal to feel discomfort. You are in the right place.
Remember, we avoid discomfort at all cost but we are avoiding the very thing that will set us free
