Quitting drinking is an enormous achievement, but it does take effort to stay sober. Along with the treatment options available at Klarity Clinic for treating an alcohol addiction, you also need to make necessary lifestyle changes to ensure your sobriety.
The providers at Klarity Clinic can help you stay on track to be sober and recommend the following tips to keep you healthy, happy, and solid in your recovery.
1. Update your routine
Maintaining sobriety requires that you don’t fall back into your same routine. Hanging out at places or with other people who were a part of your alcohol addiction can quickly lead to a relapse.
It’s important that you incorporate new things into your life, focusing on increasing your daily exercise, eating healthy, and spending more time with family and close friends that support your sobriety.
2. Get on a schedule
Having structure in your life plays a large part in addiction recovery. If you remain disorganized and don’t stick to a healthy schedule, you may find yourself backsliding into depression or other issues that triggers you to drink.
Take time to outline your short-term and long-term goals and what you need to do to achieve those goals every day. Write it all out on paper, and post it somewhere you can see it often.
3. Reconstruct your social circle
Although it can be initially lonely in sobriety, there are ways to build friendships outside of your family and the bars.
You can connect with healthy people through your addiction support group, church, and other organizations where alcohol doesn’t play a role. Stay away from risky situations where your recovery may be put at risk because of the presence of alcohol or toxic people.
4. Focus on financial independence
Many people with an alcohol addiction struggle to hold a job and remain financially stable. Once in recovery, it’s important that you devote time and energy into securing a place in the workforce or taking the steps to start a new career, such as registering for training classes or enrolling in college.
When not working and continuing to struggle financially, it can be difficult to overcome the stress and anxieties of daily life. This struggle may trigger a return to alcohol.
5. Stay engaged in professional help
There’s a reason professional addiction and recovery services are available – people need them to stay in recovery. The team at Klarity Clinic offer comprehensive services to help you remain sober and healthy.
