What is Guest Blogging?

For some time now we’ve enjoyed reading posts from some very brave Addiction bloggers out there in the online blogosphere. Some of the journal entries we have come across detail the struggles addicts (and their loved ones) come across so clearly that the sharers have created online pseudonyms to keep their identity anonymous. This got us thinking about sharing some of the addiction blogs we are partial to; for your journey to Sobriety. It doesn’t really matter where you are in that journey or if you’re just here to support someone else on their journey.

What to Expect in Early Sobriety

Thinking about getting sober? Maybe you’re experiencing relationship troubles, failing health, trouble at work, or legal problems like DUIs due to drinking. Or maybe you’re just sick of hangovers.

Whatever your motivations, we have answers about what you can expect in the first few days, weeks, and months living clean from booze.

 

How to Tell a Close Person They Have a Drinking Problem

 It’s not always easy to approach a loved one with concern about the possibility that they may be an alcoholic. You run the risk of evoking a negative and sometimes angry response from them if they are in denial. For this reason, it is wise to learn a little bit about how to approach such a person. Tune in for some tips on how you can tell a close person if you think they have a drinking problem.

Addiction in Popular Media

Alcoholics and addicts often feel alone in their experience. The notion that no one understands the pain, fear, and shame they experience can preclude them from admitting defeat or seeking the help they need. Popular media serves a powerful role in this context. It can create an open dialogue about the horror of addiction and provide a way for those suffering, or the people that love them, to know they are not alone, and that there is help if they ask for it.

Celebrities Journeying the Road To Recovery

Alcohol and drug addiction is rampant in our society and celebrities are not exempt from such. I’m sure you’ve heard about various celebrities caught in the grip of addiction. While some do get free, others continue to struggle. Being in the spotlight does not make it any easier for them. Good news is that there are plenty of former addicts who have kicked the addiction to the curb and have created a life that they love, so if you happen to be struggling, read on for some inspiration and hope.

Explaining Sobriety at Social Events

One of the hardest parts of early sobriety was learning to navigate familiar social events as a sober person. In my party days, whatever the occasion–wedding, work happy hour, baby shower, you name it–if there was booze, I was drinking. Then, sobriety came along and smacked me upside the head, and I had to figure out who I was and how to go about living my life without liquor.
