Living Sober: Getting The Best Out Of Life Living sober is really about getting the best out of the life that you have. When you drink or abuse drugs the days tend to blur into one another. Waking up sober means your entire day is ahead of you to do whatever it is you want to do. You can be a better person. You can develop a hobby that you’ve never had before. You can take up sailing, or fishing or hiking or jogging or playing tennis. You can take martial arts classes or kickboxing or Tae-Bo. You can take up cooking. Addiction Treatment Services: Using Them To Get You Better Addiction treatment services are there at your disposal to help you understand and battle your drug or alcohol problem. Since you have decided to check into a rehab facility why not make the best of it. Some people check in and immediately want to check out. It’s kind of like agreeing to a job overseas and then getting there and realizing that it’s not what you signed up for. However, once you are over there you might as well adjust to the situation and make the most of it. Sure it’s not easy but if it were easy you wouldn’t be in rehab. Addiction Therapy: Whatever Works Even if you don’t agree with everything that addiction therapy has to offer you should try and find something that you did agree with in the program and focus on that. If there is a program that seems a little nutty but you respond to it don’t listen to what the outside voices say just go with the program that works for you. Everyone responds to therapy differently and some people respond really well to one kind of therapy while another person responds differently to a different kind of therapy.
