Tips For Alcohol Sobriety While Celebrating


Tips to stay sober while celebrating
It can be difficult for many people to practice alcohol sobriety while attending celebrations. It may seem that no matter where you look, you will find people drinking and celebrating with various types of liquor, and you may feel the familiar sense of temptation to have a drink. However, if you are a recovering alcoholic, it is important to remember that even one drink can send you on a slippery slope down the road of alcoholism.

However, as a celebratory or sobriety survival guide will tell you, the important thing about staying sober during a festivity is to simply follow a few easy tips, each of which can help you fight away temptation while still celebrating with your friends.

Tips To Stay Sober 

 
Reconnecting with an AA group or its former members is an excellent way to get and provide much needed support during this difficult time. Invite each other over and share stories and talk about your personal successes over temptation. Even if you find yourself struggling just a little bit, you can call an AA friend and know that he or she will be there for you. There is no reason to feel alone while attending a party, because for as many people that will be drinking, there will also be those who will not be.

Depression is not an uncommon symptom of past alcohol abuse. Even a recovering alcoholic may feel depressed, and for such times, it is important to keep your spirits up without resorting to alcohol. This involves starting a hobby, finding an interesting television show, or grabbing a new book and immersing yourself in the story. If the depression becomes too severe, then it is a good idea to speak to your doctor about the possibilities of an antidepressant.

Offer to be the designated driver for people during the party. This helps in the tremendous way that it gives you an important sense of obligation to stay sober for the safety of your friends and family. By assuming responsibility for getting them home, you will be able to hold off on drinking.

Treatment For Alcoholism

 
Treatment for alcoholism can be as simple as living one day at a time. Even if you go one day without a drink, you have made an important improvement for that day. The days will continue to add up, until you will have gone a week without alcohol, and then a month, and then a year, and the feeling of pride and self satisfaction will be more than worth it.

  2. I have had friends that have suffered from alcoholism. It is really sad for me to see them struggle because they have so much potential but at times, they have given in to their addiction. I always try my hardest to always be there for them and help them when they are struggling.

  3. I need to show these tips to my friend. He's been trying to stay sober for a while now and it's really hard for him, especially at parties. I don't drink, so I try to help him as much as I can. I'm just glad that he's trying to be sober. He has decided that if his problem doesn't get better that he'll go to a rehab center, probably Health Recovery Center.

  4. I imagine having a support system and friends through the AA program would be the most beneficial factor. Having a friend who can understand what you're going through is the most important tool you can have. My brother networked in his AA meetings, and he said it was the thing that helped him quit once and for all!

  8. I feel like celebrations are the main reason that people go back to drinking. It's really hard not to drink when everyone around you is, especially if you've had alcohol problems in the past. I've heard of short-term rehab before though. It seems like a good way to just kind of get yourself started on the addiction recovery path.

  11. I guess addiction and depression goes together, but, it has to be cure cause you might lose your value as a person. People suffering from depression might get be addicted because they are looking for a way to escape it. In a drug treatment center the source of depression is being determined before it truly heals the addiction. Addiction is social epidemic that is destroying the lives of millions of people.

    Addiction of everything is bad. Many people are addict of Alcohol, Smoking and many substances. I am very glad to see that Rehabilitation center perform a good role against the drug. In rehab centers, they purify the patients, treat their withdrawal symptoms and they also perform psycho-emotional treatments as part of the all-inclusive treatment approach.
