1. Attend support groups often times a week.

How you find your support is your business but it has been a proven fact that organizations such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, have a much higher success rate for the early recovering addict. This is a great place to find like minded people working toward the same common goal. To stay sober.

2. Stay connected to others in recovery.

The fellowship of AA and NA is just one of the facets for remaining sober. It is vital that once you are involved in a group you find those who are supportive and are really working the program the correct way. Reach out to those who know the ropes. Follow instructions and stay open to taking suggestions. This becomes your new family. It is a great way to plug in and not feel so depressed, isolated and alone in early recovery.

3. Find a helpful sponsor or a willing mentor.

The idea of a sponsor is someone who has significant clean time under them and can guide you in the 12 steps. They provide tremendous support throughout your journey in early recovery. You learn to understand how the mind of the addict or alcoholic thinks and that those who have gone before you have tremendous knowledge and are willing to reach out and help.

4. Keep a healthy diet and make sure to get on an exercise schedule.

Addicts neglect themselves and their health during addiction. Using drugs and alcohol can do significant damage to the body. It is very important that you start to understand how certain food and vitamins can assist in helping your brain to calibrate and detoxify you body. Maintaining your physical, spiritual and also emotional health is important. Consistent exercise results in the release of endorphin’s. This is our bodies natural chemical that helps to promote a feeling of overall happiness and assist in mental health stability.

5. Find hobbies and things that you enjoy doing.

All we focus on in our active use is numbing out. There is a lot of free time in early recovery which can be scary to the newly recovering addict. We often forget what it means to sit alone and to be with ourselves. Finding something your passionate about is key. Start to explore things before your addiction you had always wanted to try.
