Sobriety gives the body time to recover and recover from the damage caused by drugs and alcohol. By detoxifying your body of these substances, you'll feel better physically. You'll wake up with more energy and, in turn, be more productive throughout the day. You may also notice physical differences.
When you suffer from addiction, you become so obsessed with getting more alcohol or drugs that you stop investing in your relationships with other people. In fact, the selfish behaviors that often come with addiction often break the relationships you have with others. One of the major benefits of sobriety is that you'll regain the patience, time, and capacity you need to build lasting relationships. Once sober, you can use this skill to make up for lost time and make new friends.
Sobriety has pushed me to be creative. Do and see things differently. It has helped me to discover new activities that enlighten me and to discover new and beautiful connections. Since then, I have created a rich tapestry of a life, a life much more satisfying and rewarding than I ever imagined.
Sobriety for me now isn't about living without alcohol, it's about really living.
