What does living a life of sobriety mean?

We barely talk about it but drugs have been ravaging a lot of people. 

It is not just teenagers or those in the university I am talking about. Some people start it while very young and go well into their fifties with the habit. For others, it is not drugs but alcohol, something that many of us might assume is not such a big deal. 

But if you have seen first-hand what substance addiction can do to a person then you will know why we should sustain conversations around this. 

The truth is that most of us assume that being sober is a boring way of life, especially when it comes to alcohol. Alcoholism commonly viewed in society as normal. It is evident that you are ‘living your best life’ and it is viewed as a necessity when having a great time. If you say that you don’t drink, then you are seen as the oddball. The one who acts like he/she is holier than thou but then sobriety transcends being a bore. 

First of all, it is actually evidence of self-awareness. Only someone who is aware of her weakness around drugs or alcohol will choose a life of sobriety. It is a show of strength and self-restraint because you have an understanding of the devastating effects of hard substances and alcohol. 

Secondly, it is self-acceptance; an understanding of who you are, your limits and putting measures in place to be a better version of yourself. 

Therefore, the next time you go out with friends and they single you out for being the only one who does not drink, don’t let it get to you. You are stronger than they will ever be (and you probably need a new set of friends).

Coming from a place of addiction, sobriety is the only way to live your best life!
