Living a Sober Way of Life – Recovered 1220

150 150 Mark S

Sobriety can have different meanings to different people. For some, sobriety is the condition of not having any alcohol or drugs. Some in 12 step recovery fellowships, they define sobriety as achieving good mental health. To many, this seems like a more fulfilling approach to sobriety, rather than just avoiding drinking or using drugs.

Living a sober life is better than one spent fighting with addiction. Living a Sober Way of life will provide more clarity, focus, drive – and you’ll slowly start to build your relationships back up to go on living as a productive member of society. To those on the outside, you will become much more interesting.

At first, it might be challenging to see the real value of living a sober life. Many recovering addicts will glorify the old substance abuse days, often claiming their life was more fun. But our story is that using wasn’t fun anymore. We needed a new way of living.

Tonight, we talk about Living a Sober Way of Life.

Escape Suffering – Recovered 1216

150 150 Mark S


By giving back to others, you give yourself a purpose. It’s a constant reminder of the fact that you are worthy of life, that you have something to offer, and that you deserve love just as much as everyone else. There’s nothing quite like feeling needed, and people who are fresh into sober living can certainly benefit from the lessons you have to teach them after you’ve walked the path for a while yourself. There’s also nothing quite like the satisfaction of talking to someone when they are suffering. Sometimes what we need most is just a friendly ear. Never doubt how much you provide just by offering someone a friendly ear.  We find that when we support someone who is suffering, our own suffering is eased. Tonight, we talk about Escaping Suffering.
