Getting sober is just the beginning. Life rolls out the red carpet when we fully step into recovery and let it be our permanent mindset. Let the fun begin and let it continue! What can you add to this list?
We give much attention to getting sober from drugs and alcohol but emotional sobriety is something that, in alcoholic or dysfunctional families, everyone loses. And everyone needs to get back. The essence of emotional sobriety is good self-regulation… when we can’t bring our feeling and thinking into some sort of balance, our life and our relationships feel out of balance too. The ability to self-regulate, to bring ourselves into balance, is key to emotional sobriety.
