If you are sitting in early sobriety, or feeling “stuck” in your recovery, this conversation is for you.

In the beginning, motivation is high because there is some event that makes you stop and analyze what you’re doing, ie. you embarrassed yourself at a party, you fell down drunk and hurt yourself, got in a fight with your partner, or got a DUI.

There is something that makes you wake up and think, “Holy crap, I’ve got to get it together.”

But, as you’ve heard me say before, you can’t depend on motivation because it comes… and it goes.

When it goes, staying sober is a challenge. Life strikes, throws you a curveball, emotions are triggered and you find yourself wanting a drink more than ever.

There are a few key skills you can start focusing on to set yourself up for success and we are doing a deep dive in this episode.
