A Safe and Sober Holiday

We at Hope by the Sea would like to wish everyone a safe and sober holiday. It goes without saying that the holidays are difficult for those in recovery. During this time of year it is crucial that you remember where you came from and how important your sobriety is, stay close to your support network.

Before everything else, your sobriety must come first! Listed below are some reminders that you may find useful:

Support Network:

If you are working a program of recovery, then you know how important it is to stay connected to the people in your support network. Never hesitate to pick up the phone and call someone, even if things are OK. You never know, maybe your phone call will help someone. We cannot do this alone!

Meetings:

Right now there is a 12-step meeting taking place, and there will be one every hour until the day is over. The same goes for New Years Eve. If you need to talk to someone in person then get yourself to a meeting. Even if you have nothing to say, it is always helpful to hear what others are going through.

Give Thanks:

It is important to keep in mind those who have helped you throughout the year. Without others you would not have gotten to where you are today. Let them know how important they are to you and your sobriety, it may be the greatest gift you give this year. Be grateful for the blessings you have.
