Clean & Sober: The Best Gift this Holiday Season!

Getting sober is a major life altering change and staying sober or free from an addiction is a life journey. But it is one that has many benefits for both you and your loved ones. It is easy to get swept up into the buying element of the holidays. But during this time, you want to stay focused on your sobriety, rather than worrying about spending money you may not have or dealing with the stress of shopping at crowded malls or waiting in long lines. Instead of worrying about tangible gifts, give yourself and your loved one the best gift of all this holiday season; the gift of sobriety. Here are a few of the reasons why this is a great gift for both you and your loved ones.

Why Sobriety is the Best Gift for Yourself

Sobriety is one of the hardest things to achieve, yet is well worth the effort. This is because there are many benefits to becoming sober. When you become sober and stay sober, your life changes. One of the changes is to your health. You will steadily become healthier as the substance you were addicted to detoxes from your body and you stay away from it. You also become healthier mentally. Many addicts make decisions based on their addiction, not based on what is right for them. You mentally become more aware of yourself, those around you and make better decisions. Lastly, your relationships improve as you get sober and remain sober.

Why Sobriety is the Best Gift for Your Loved Ones

Being an addict takes a huge toll on your loved ones, including your family and friends. Any parent with an addicted child will tell you the greatest gift is recovery for their child. They constantly are put in the position of wanting to help you, but feeling taken advantage of, used and lied to. They also must worry about horrible things happening to you when you are impaired. Staying clean and sober helps to lift this burden off your family and friends. They get to enjoy your presence without the stress of worrying about your addiction.

Sobriety is one of the best gifts that you can give to yourself and your loved one’s this holiday season.
