Sober Living

Copper: The Documentary

Have you ever wondered how some addicts get money for their addictive habit? With many addicts so deep in the grips of addiction, it is difficult to hold down a job. Due to such some have taken to scrapping for metal such as copper in order to fund their addiction.  Film makers in Denver, CO are just about finished with a documentary that shares real life stories of addicts who are addicted to heroin and scrap for copper in order to make money.  Be sure to tune into this eye-opening film this fall.

Drinking Around Someone in Recovery

You are having a great time at the party gulping down tasty mixed drinks and suddenly an old friend of yours who has quit drinking appears in sight! What should you do now? Should you hide away your pleasure of drinking your cocktail so that they aren’t tempted or should you continue to behave as if they never drank and were a teetotaler by birth? What about if you are having a family get together and someone from your family is in recovery? Do you refrain from drinking and tell the other guests to do the same?

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.

Dating & Sobriety

Dating in recovery can be fun. Trust me, I know. When I first got sober, I thought I would be single for the rest of my life. Who would want to date an alcoholic? Who would accept me when I couldn’t even accept myself?

Medical Marijuana Dispensaries & Your Sobriety

If medical marijuana is legal in your state will it have an impact on your sobriety? In particular, will access to a medical marijuana dispensary mean you could jeopardize your recovery? It’s a question to think long and hard about if you have struggled with addiction. As we all know, laws have little to do with the realities of our addictions.
