The Power of Acceptance: Embracing Change for a Brighter Future
It seems like everyone is getting sober these days. There is a long list of celebrities that are very open about their sobriety, including Jamie Lee Curtis, Bradley Cooper and Craig Ferguson. There is a swelling recovery movement that is celebrating clean and sober in a lot of fun ways, including films, rock and roll, and weekend conventions. “How do I know I am ready for getting sober?” Good question.

There is a saying in AA about getting sober and staying sober: You alone can do it, but you can’t do it alone. Statistically it is almost impossible to get and stay sober on your own. You may have tried it yourself thousands of times. People are often successful at not drinking for a number of days, weeks, even months, on their own. But inevitably, if there is not a program of recovery in place, an alcoholic will drink again. That's the very nature of alcoholism. It is baffling and powerful. The alcoholic needs help in stopping, and staying stopped. Recovery doesn't’ make any logical sense to the alcoholic trying to stop on their own, proving to themselves over and over again that they can stop. That is one reason why it is so difficult for intellectual alcoholics to get and stay sober. The alcoholic is often trying to figure out why they start drinking again, over and over. In recovery you will be encouraged to stop asking ‘why’, and start asking ‘how’. Let’s face it, if you were getting sober and staying sober on your own, you wouldn't be reading this article.
