In order to continue my sobriety I have had to find ways to motivate myself, even when I don’t feel like doing any of the things that I have to. – Rose Lockinger

Staying motivated has really become the name of the game for me now that I have been sober for a little while. Or as a friend put it staying sober long-term is really a battle against yourself at times. The willingness and desperation that I felt walking through the doors waxes and wanes at times as I can easily forget the hell I escaped given how different my life is today. This means that I can’t necessarily rest on the desperation of the past in order to keep me sober today. In order to continue my sobriety I have had to find ways to motivate myself, even when I don’t feel like doing any of the things that I have to.

I know it’s scary, but it’s worth it. Don’t give up. Take it one day at a time. This is the first day of the rest of your life. – Kelly Fitzgerald, a.k.a. The Sober Senorita

My blog definitely plays a part in keeping me sober and allows me to pass on the message of recovery to others! When I started it I was 8 months sober and it was therapeutic for me to get my feelings out in writing. Then I realized there are people who can relate and benefit from just hearing my experiences. I started writing for selfish reasons and now I write to help others. It’s a two-way street and it’s awesome! I know it’s scary, but it’s worth it. Don’t give up. Take it one day at a time. This is the first day of the rest of your life.

I had always been trying to escape it. And now each day, I just try to work through the complicated feelings that I have as a result. One day at a time. – Anonymous

As I grow up and I have more distance from our relationship, I realize more and more how so much of what I experienced as a child was just not okay. It wasn’t normal and it makes me so mad at my mother. Even though I understand that addiction is a disease and that co-occurring disorders are very common, it’s still hard not to feel resentment and anger.

I also often feel guilty about allowing this distance to grow between us, both literally and metaphorically. It was purposeful on my part. I had always been trying to escape it. And now each day, I just try to work through the complicated feelings that I have as a result. One day at a time.

Write everything that you’re feeling, everything that you’re afraid to feel, and everything you can’t say out loud. – Tawny Lara, Sobrietea Party

Write about it in a journal. And be honest with yourself. Write everything that you’re feeling, everything that you’re afraid to feel, and everything you can’t say out loud. If even the smallest part of you thinks you might have a problem with addiction, it’s worth looking into. Tell someone you trust. If you don’t have someone you trust, email me. Life is so freaking wonderful. I want you to be awake and actually, LIVE it!
