How to stay Sober this festive time!

Addiction

Hey it’s December. It’s party time! Stressed ? Anxious?…. Might be….. Yes, December is known for parties and holidays, along with the joy comes in the challenges of finances and remaining sober especially to people who are under recovery from alcohol and drug addiction and learning to remain sober. It might become a challenge to win over the temptations from family and friends during the period of Christmas and new year and to touch January being sober. But do not worry too much we are here to help you, you can cross this and still be sober.

                                        Tips to stay sober during festivals and holidays

Here are few tips to help you to remain sober during holidays and festivals;

  1. You don’t have to go: There are tons of holiday parties, work parties, family parties, and so on. If this is your first year sober, you are under no obligation to attend any of them. If people drink a lot at those parties, chances are they won’t even notice you weren’t there!
  2. If the holidays mean visiting your old hometown, take time to see old friends you enjoy; avoid those you used to drink or use drugs with.  Make plans on how you wish to spend time when you are there and still remain sober, so you don’t find yourself with time to kill and fleeting thoughts of visiting the people who are still drinking or using.
  3. Plan your own celebrations. If you aren’t going traveling for the holidays, plan to celebrate with local best buddies. If you haven’t been invited, then you do the honors, you invite guests who will allow you to remain sober and respect your decision.
  4. Don’t romance the drink or drug. If everyone starts talking about your drinking days then leave the room. You don’t want to start thinking about your drinking or using days. That can lead to preoccupation and obsession, and then to cravings. Keep your focus on your life right now, your life in recovery.
  5. Make a plan for dealing with cravings. Write up a list of what works for you: calling someone, reading recovery books, a quick workout at the gym, prayer. Think about what has worked for you in the past, and be sure you are ready for some solutions.
  6. Make a plan for staying sober at parties.  Decide in advance that there’s no way in the world that you will drink or use drugs at the event. Ask for help from your Higher Power, because you may need it. Know and rehearse exactly what you will say if someone asks, “Would you like a drink?” or “Want to do a line?
  7. Bring your own beverage.  If a holiday celebration includes the use of alcoholic beverages (such as wine at Passover), make sure in advance that there are substitutes (such as grape juice) for you and anyone else who doesn’t want to drink the harder stuff.
  8. Don’t go it alone. Bring along a friend as a sober companion. Or take someone at the party into your confidence (the host, a friend, even a waiter); candor will serve you the purpose of being sober.

This is not all of it, try to read some successful recovery stories or write your own story of your experience.
