Course Description

motivation for sobriety

Everyone struggles during their journey, and being honest about our struggles allows us to reach out to those who are supportive and willing to help. The people you reach out to might be able to help re-spark your motivation, but they’ll never be able to help if you don’t speak up when you’re in need. Next, take a little time to generate a list of more specific personal recovery goals. Don’t worry at this point about the number of goals or how feasible they may be. It is no secret that choosing to embark on the path of recovery is not easy. Whether you choose to attend a rehabilitation facility for a length of time or are choosing to go the individualized route, there will be times where you feel like giving up or begin to wonder why you are even trying at all.

And it’s like a, I guess, it’s like the unsung hero, you know, the anonymous person who gets to share, they can share their story and put it out there and then get people, you know, hyped up. It’s sort of three parts and helps me for sure. And it also helps the other person on the other end who might be struggling or just need a little bit a little bit of motivation to get another day. Yeah, start anywhere, you got to just get started, you have to get started, nothing changes, if nothing changes, right? It’s so interesting to when people reach out about getting sober.

Understanding the science of motivation in addiction recovery

Motivation helps individuals create and keep healthy habits and behaviours. When a person wants to recover from addiction, they are likely to do activities that help them, like going to therapy sessions, caring for themselves, and taking part in support groups. These not only help them stay sober now, but also create a better life in the future. Inspirational resources can be motivating. Real-life success stories remind that one is not alone. Inspiring quotes and engaging with the sober support community can motivate.

Besides a lotus, you can consider getting any other recovery symbols in this style. Ultimately it is up to the wearer to personalize their sobriety tattoo in a way that is most encouraging to them. This is a treatment that first prevents someone from using their substance of choice and then provides information about the harm of using. This past weekend, we woke up to the devastating news that beloved “Friends” actor Matthew Perry, who had long struggled with addiction, was found dead in the bathroom of his California home. Police quickly assured the public that there were no signs of foul play while simultaneously assuring the public that no official cause of death would be announced for quite some time. Getting sober may make you feel confused, unclear, and emotional at first.

It gives people a sense of control over their recovery and more likely to make long-term changes. To better understand motivation in recovery, remember that addiction itself is a behavioral motivator. People turn to substance abuse to meet emotional or psychological needs.

It’s time to level up and try again; getting back up after a relapse is like hitting the reset button on a motivational video game. Having someone to be accountable to can boost motivation. This can be a sponsor in a 12-step program, a trusted family member or friend who holds you responsible. It’s important to find the right supporters for your recovery, just like finding the right treatment.

How to Get Sober and Stay Sober

  • I mean, if you would have people might have mentioned it.
  • If a song is playing, turn the radio off, if you get a text from an old friend with whom you used to use substances, consider blocking the number.
  • Staying motivated in addiction recovery can be challenging when you feel overwhelmed by past mistakes or anxious about the future.
  • Recovery motivation can be challenging to maintain, especially during the early stages.

It was another part of like, maybe stepping towards like closing that door. And but yeah, you’re 100% right on the whole thing about me relying on motivation alone, you’re not going to get where you want to go. Even if you shower daily, I mean, sometimes you might have to shower twice, if you’re, you know, working in the yard in the sun, or stop me at any point out that that’s how consistently you have to do it.
