Am I Sober or Am I In Recovery?

Which one?

What’s the difference? It’s BIG.

Is there a difference? YES.

To be sober – one needs to stop swallowing alcohol. That’s it.

To be in recovery – one needs to become a non-drinker.

These are two very different positions to take.

The first is a change in outward behavior. Don’t pick up a drink.

The second is a change in internal recognition. I no longer associate ME with alcohol. No matter what happens in life – alcohol is about as relevant to me as a dinosaur. There’s simply no connection.

🙂

Being sober or moving into recovery are both options.
