Not returning to what you were before

Not returning to what you were before is your chance to reinvent yourself in recovery. There isn’t other kind of recovery that opens the door for living better than we had ever dreamed possible. When we get sober, we don’t simply return to the person we were. Changes have happened, and that’s OK! In fact, it’s better than OK. The exciting part is reinventing yourself in your new sober life. Dealing with addiction issues can make you so strong and powerful as a person. In sobriety, you can look forward to being better than you ever were before.

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 begin that change to be your best you

Not returning to what you were before will give you the life you want. Really. 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.
