forgive yourself

Forgive yourself first

Forgive yourself first is about how in sobriety, often the most important person you have to forgive is yourself. It’s close to your first step after getting sober. Addiction is a disease. That does not mean we aren’t accountable for our behaviors, but we have to learn to let go of the shame and guilt around them.

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 the life you always wanted

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.
