How to Achieve Sobriety

Sobriety is a journey and there are many who have achieved a long period of sobriety. Basically they have learned to face all challenges by seeking out the right types of help and support.  As the months and years in sobriety accumulate, dealing with life becomes a lot easier. It is important to realize,  thoughts, situations, or smells can trigger your desires to return to a love of a substance or actions, but you have to remember your "why" and the "promises" you told yourself and others in order to reject the calling. Plus speak with someone to process your inner core frustrations, disappointments, or angers to help you get back in a peaceful place. Take time to mediate on how you can please your creator (God) by rejecting the call of your addictions. Today let go of any fears of going back to your old ways and focus on the fun of life is to be found in the journey of remaining clean forever. (Written by Nancia Leath after speaking with Jane, R.
