Talk About Recovery and Sobriety
There is a huge stigma out there about recovery and sobriety. One of the best things you can do to help celebrate National Recovery Month is talk about sobriety. Write a blog, participate in a podcast or even put together a YouTube video. The more people talk about their road to sobriety, the more people can get past the stigma associated with recovery. Speaking out is also an excellent way for people to realize that they are not alone on their journey to sobriety, which can be comforting and reassuring.
