For the addict and alcoholic, getting sober isn't just about quitting drinking and drugging; it's about getting to the root of our problem. . We started using because it solved all of our problems, until it didn't. When it stopped working our lives became unmanageable. . For the alcoholic and addict, to use is to die and we had to find another way. As we started working the 12 steps we began to clean up the wreckage we had caused, we started keeping our side of the street clean and we helped other alcoholics and addicts who were still suffering. . Through living with integrity, and practicing these principles in all of our affairs, we began to build ourselves back up. As we focused on what we could do each day to be the best version of ourselves, we started to love the person we were becoming. . The goal of sobriety isn't to stay sober. The goal is to love yourself so much you don't have to drink and use.
