Rehab Facility California - Tips for staying sober

It's quick and easy, going through recovery, getting sober and staying that way.

We at Rehab Facility California, would absolutely love to say that that is, indeed the case. That getting clean is simple and quick. Well, it isn't. There's pain, anxiety, and doubt, the kind of thing you would expect from making such a big life decisions. But there's also a sense of direction, and, most importantly, hope.

So for those hoping to stay clean, here are some tips.

Stick to your plan. Stay the course.

You have some sort of plan, or a goal or some sort of objective. The steps aren't all there, but it can only lead to one place: being clean for life. That's good. Now stay the course, and do what you need to stay clean. Eat regular, nutritious meals, get enough sleep, get some exercise. Do whatever recommendations you've received for your daily regimen. Stick to the plan to start, and, as you become more and more attuned to the sobriety and the necessary things for it, you can do more and more.

It's a long time commitment.

Rehab can take a lot out of you. It can take a lot out of anyone. Here, at Rehab Facility California, we understand how drastic of  change in life rehab is. We know that people who recover are eager to get their life back on track. That's the goal of rehab, and it's a goal that takes a while to achieve, due in no small part to the necessary steps. Now that you're clean, leave behind the things that represent the old ways that led to your addiction, and dedicate yourself to the things that can help you stay clean. It'll take a while, but it's worth it.

Rome wasn't built in a day. It all started with bricks.

As extension to the above point, recovery is a long term goal, and a long and arduous process. It isn't easy and it isn't fast. One way to stay sober, to successfully make use of the tips given to you by rehab is to make small goals to start with. Stay clean for a day. Something to that effect and scale. Why are these important, you want to stay clean for life, after all.It's because the small things lead up to the big ones. Small, achievable goals lay the foundation for the larger ones, allowing you to learn the best way to go about achieving big goals, as well as giving you the confidence and self-esteem boost for them.

A touch of reality with tales of horror
Garden of Fiends: Tales of Addiction Horror - Johann Thorsson,Max Booth III,Glen Krisch,Jessica McHugh,Kealan Patrick Burke,Mark Matthews,Jack Ketchum

Some of these stories were unexpected. Some were actually touching considering the subject matter. Some a little creepy. I enjoyed the imagination of the different writers, the way their stories unfolded. This is not for the faint at heart with some of the endings. There were times I wanted to finish the story but I could not sit in my car all day. If you like horror with a touch of reality, this is a good place to find it.

I received this audiobook as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.

Funny

I think it's funny that whenever I think I need to take a break from reading I just end up reading something else. I read cereal boxes, newspapers, magazines, the internet, graffiti etc. I am always reading something. 

 

I'm stalling now that I'm reading Red Bones by Ann Cleeves. I love this series but I think I just need to read something else. I read the first book in a different series and now I'm thinking about going on to the second one but I feel guilty about not finishing the book that I was so eager to get in the mail. It isn't the book's fault either, I just marathoned the first two books and needed to change gears.

 * The reality of addiction is darker than any fiction. *

"Drinking and drugging provide the height of human experience.

It's the promise of heaven on earth,

but the hell that follows is a constant hunger, a cold emptiness."

 Before I read even one story in this 'reality horror' anthology - Mark Matthews had me crying so hard that I could barely see. He presents an addiction anthology with compassion, casting no aspersions on anyone. I wan't to meet Mark Matthews, and give him the tightest hug ever.

 

"Imagine yourself drowning and being told not to swim to the surface for air. Obsessions should be so mild."

 

 

I'll have the full review posted soon - I was going over my notes for this review, and I'm bawling again.
