Sober Living Tips in Coral Spring     

One of our first suggestions and “Tips for Sober Living” is avoiding triggers and apply the acronym “HALT” which stands for: Hungry, Angry, Lonely, and Tired. If we let ourselves get too hungry, angry, lonely or tired, we are headed for problems. Nobody can be useful to anyone if they are dragging, cranky, uncomfortable. And addicts are likely to get a craving for a substance of choice if any one of these basic necessities isn’t cared for.    

The reason we bring focus to this is that “Triggers” and cravings are a very real part of addiction recovery. We can all proactively prevent relapse by taking care of ourselves and recognizing certain signs. The key to maintaining healthy sober living is a combination of self-care and self-awareness.    

Taking things day-by-day, hour-by-hour, or if necessary, minute by minute is crucial to your early success in recovery.
