Emotional Sobriety: Finding Serenity Amidst the Chaos



So, you’ve taken the plunge and bid farewell to the booze and drugs. You've embraced the sober life, got yourself a trusty sponsor, tackled those steps like a champ, and made the meetings your second home. Yet, amidst this journey, you might find yourself wondering,

"Where's that promised serenity hiding?"


Well, my friend, sobriety isn't just about what we don't consume; it's about what we emit too.


Ever found yourself twisting someone's emotions like a pretzel to suit your needs? Caught in a whirlwind of negative self-talk that's more vicious than a pack of hungry wolves?


Or perhaps you've blown a gasket over a seemingly inconsequential mishap, like someone cutting you off on the freeway, or the dog deciding the carpet makes a great spot for a vomit festival.


These everyday triggers, both big and small, can send us spiraling if we're not emotionally sober.


Emotional sobriety means our lives run smoothly, no matter the chaos outside. It's about peeling back the layers, diving beneath our surface reactions, and facing the root causes head-on.


It's acknowledging that the kid within us still throws tantrums, and it's our job to comfort and guide them.


So, let's embrace the journey of feeling all the feels, understanding where they come from, and finding peace in the process.


Because in the end, emotional sobriety isn't just about staying dry; it's about thriving in the face of life's storms, armed with self-acceptance, resilience, and an unwavering sense of peace.


Remember, it's not the situation that dictates our happiness, but the thoughts we choose to entertain.


Cheers to the adventure of emotional sobriety – it's where the real magic happens.
