Coping is an Amazing Ability

with one comment

A common point of view among addicts is one that suggests ‘if I can cope today, I can cope tomorrow.’ Unfortunately, a record of past success has very little to do with present or future challenges.

An addict who goes the whole day without a drink ought to be commended by making it through the day clean, but anyone who is truly in recovery knows that tomorrow will bring a new set of obstacles and will require just as much vigilance to successfully stay sober again.

understanding

Each new day, we are all confronted by new external forces that test us. An argument with a loved one, the loss of a job, a bad day physically… the number of potential ‘triggers’ for your addiction may be nearly limitless, and so your resolve to remain clean and sober must be limitless as well!

On your best and strongest days emotionally, when things go right and when you feel your best, staying sober may seem possible on your own. But what about a day of weakness? A day when you aren’t at your best or when the difficulties you face make your addiction too much to fend of by yourself?

That’s the reason why support groups and frequent meeting are so important to your success at staying sober. By supporting each other, people who all face their own addiction can share their strength with each other.

On a day where you feel strong you can help someone else make it through their weakest hours, and on a day when the bottle is calling your name the loudest, they can step forward to help you keep it away from your mouth. There is strength in numbers, get help online right now by joining a recovery community. It’s free, it’s easy… and it works!

  1. To think that 80% of addicts never seek help is amazing.
