How staying sober makes you a better person (ii)

When you decide to choose sobriety, you are not the only one who benefits from that. It positively affects those around you and improves your social life in many aspects.

Sobriety is not a loss so don’t ever feel that you will be nostalgic and ‘miss the good old days’. Rather, all that addiction does is to take from you.

On the other hand, if you are sober then you will realize the following:

6. You have more time and money

Addiction is a very expensive lifestyle. It takes from your body and your purse. However, when you are sober, you will have more money at your disposal, to use for more profitable ventures. Likewise, the time you spend drinking or doing drugs gets diverted to more productive things.

7. Your relationships improve

Be it as a partner, friend, parent, child or sibling, you will notice a marked difference in the quality of your relationships once you are sober. This is because you are more emotionally present, aware of how to maintain the relationship and selfless in your dealings with the people around you.

8. People trust and respect you

Addicts tend to be shifty and are always looking for a quick buck to fuel their habits. Over time, people lose respect for them and doubt their intentions. But when you are clean, you can present a more respectable and trustworthy image of yourself.

Sobriety helps you become the best version of yourself. You will feel great about yourself, have the most (clean) fun than you ever thought was possible and see for the first time in a long time, all that you had been missing.

It essential that you know these because they can serve as motivation to choose a life of sobriety and if you have already chosen that life it reminds you of why it is all worth it. 

Say ‘no’ to substance abuse and alcoholism today!
