Getting sober is undoubtedly one of the biggest hurdles a person can overcome in life. But once an addict is in recovery, they’ll realize that it’s actually the beginning of a continual journey of self-improvement. We have to relearn social skills, gain our independence and create a new sense of purpose.
It's important that, through all of this, we remind ourselves of what we need to incorporate in our lives in order to build resiliency. To help you out with that, we've created a playlist to help you push through when the going gets tough.
Whenever you feel down or tempted to use, think about your journey and the positive aspects of your sober life. Have you started a new job or career that helps pay the bills? Have your relationships with yourself and others improved for the better? Or perhaps, do you have a new perspective on life? These can be strong motivators to keep treading on.
