If you’re the black sheep you can find others just like you and get positive connection
Today’s black sheep sober quote is about how we often feel like outcasts as addicts and alcoholics. Constantly feeling there is something different or wrong about you is a recipe for isolation. When we go into recovery we find our people. When we find our people, suddenly we know we’re not alone anymore! This is the beauty of the recovery community. It doesn’t matter what works for you whether it’s 12-Step or SMART recovery or anything else! As long as it provides healthy, safe support and community.
You don’t have to be a black sheep forever
How to quit drinking or drugging is not a one size fits all recovery. Everyone has to find their own way to do it and how to do it. But, without sobriety, there is nothing to build on. Nothing to rely on and no end to the suffering for yourself and others.
Give yourself the gift of sobriety and get to know the real you
Making the decision to get sober and stay sober leads to a new life with new feelings, newfound self-esteem, and new opportunities. It’s impossible to think about the future or goals, or anything important while in active addiction. In active addiction, we can’t see the world straight, much less ourselves. Once sober though, we can see things clearly. We can locate the issues and create solutions. Sobriety is the key to self-acceptance and self-understanding.
