Sobriety is a difficult challenge for everyone. If you’re new to sobriety or have been sober for years, there are many daily challenges, anxieties, and fears that can threaten long term recovery. Prayer and meditation are simple, reliable and time-tested methods that can help you improve your chances of staying sober and living in peace and joy.
Whether you’re sober ten days or ten years most alcoholics, addicts and problem gamblers are often in bad financial shape. Once we get sober, many of us are dazed by the financial devastation of our lives. One of the most difficult challenges you will face in recovery is establishing a stable and healthy financial life. Even people who have been sober for decades sometimes have serious money management problems that keep them from enjoying life more fully.
A healthy body is an important part of sobriety. Your body takes a beating as a result of addiction to alcohol and drug abuse. But there are simple ways to repair and rebuild your body, mind, and spirit so you can lead a healthy, successful life in recovery. Do you struggle with anxiety or depression? Do you feel flabby and weak? Are you sleeping well every night? Do you feel out of shape and weak? Do you ever wish you were in better physical shape now that you’re sober?
