5 Reasons to Choose Sobriety Over Drug Addiction

It's time to overcome your drug addiction!

It’s time to overcome your drug addiction!

Drug addiction is a serious disease that plagues millions of Americans both young and old. Sobriety is about making positive lifestyle changes that you can be proud of and that will continue to help you in the fight against relapse. There’s many reasons to choose sobriety over drug addiction, besides the obvious fact that sobriety is better for you physically. Here’s a look at 5 reasons you should choose sobriety over drug addiction.

Family Relationships Improve with Sobriety

Drug addiction can have a lethal effect on your relationships with friends, family members and loved ones. Sobriety has a way of allowing your relationships with friends and family members to improve and rebuild. There may be more damage than you may think and your drug addiction has likely resulted in failed relationships along the way but sobriety offers a new light with hope for stronger relationships in the future. Healthy relationships that are built on trust and understanding are just one of the many positive signs that sobriety is the way to go.

Building Purpose in Life One Sober Day at a Time

Drug addiction not only ruins your relationships with others, it can equally ruin your relationship with yourself. Addiction sucks that purpose out of your life, makes you feel like nothing and leaves you with an empty feeling inside. Sobriety on the other hand can offer a new way to make positive changes in your life and find meaning in the things that you do. Every day that you spend sober sheds new light on the perspective. You are worth something, your life does matter and with sobriety you do have a purpose!

Euphoria – The Enjoyment of Life without Drug Addiction

Drug addicts lose their ability to enjoy life without drugs. Addiction makes it chemically impossible to find enjoyment in life, causes a lack of interest in the things that were once most important to you and causes a chemical imbalance that takes having fun out of the equation. Sobriety can help you to regain your enjoyment in life, start having fun again and do the things that you love to do such as play sports, read a book or spend time with friends and family. Over time, that euphoria that you once had from doing drugs is now similarly felt as a result of the appreciation you now have for daily life enjoyments such as listening to your favorite music, kissing your child goodnight or watching the sunset with a loved one.

Sobriety Saves You Money

Drug addiction is one of the most costly diseases known to mankind. It’s very easy for drug addicts to overspend on drugs and alcohol, especially when the individual has already taken some drugs and is not thinking straight. Sobriety allows you to keep a clear mind when it comes to your financial spending habits and you are thus less likely to overspend on unnecessary items. Additionally, drug addiction can become costly in terms of trouble (bail, attorney’s fees, time off work, probation, court costs, etc). Sobriety means you won’t get in trouble any more for your addiction and you won’t have all those costly expenses associated with getting in trouble.

Physical Health Improves with Sobriety

The longer you are sober the healthier you may become. Physically, drug addiction takes a huge toll on the body, the organs and your physical health. Recovering from drug addiction allows the body to regenerate, repair itself and rejuvenate. Tissue damage, chronic health problems associated with drug addiction and other disorders that have resulted from long term drug addiction can begin to diminish with sobriety. Although some physical damage that is caused by drug addiction can not be repaired, there’s no better time than the present to begin living sober and to allow your body to repair itself to the best of it’s ability.
