There’s an old riddle that asks, “If three birds are on a wire and one decides to fly away, how many are on the wire?”
Answer: there are still three birds sitting on the wire. Making a decision to do something doesn’t require taking action. Getting sober is one of the most difficult things a person can do, but in order to keep your recovery, you must take actionable steps. Not only will this help you by staying clean one day at a time, but it will also help you repair relationships with yourself and others.
A History of Making Decisions
For many in active addiction, life is filled with making many decisions that lack follow through. Recovery from addiction offers incredible gifts and the ability to regain control of your life, but this involves changing both your thoughts and your actions. They say that the only thing that has to change in recovery is everything. How many times did you make a decision to stop but didn’t end up stopping? Now is the time to take actionable steps in order to protect your recovery.
Recovery is like going to the gym. There are many people who talk about going to the gym, but they never show up. Then there are those who go to the gym, but they don’t workout. Working out and getting in shape takes action and so does recovery. In the same way that you won’t lose weight or gain muscle by sitting on a workout bench, having a better life in recovery won’t happen without taking action.
There are various ways to stay sober, and it’s important to find which path is right for you. The assortment of 12-step programs have helped millions of people throughout the years, but some benefit from 12-step alternatives. Others may benefit more from living a healthier lifestyle through exercising and eating right. You also might be someone who benefits from individual therapy or meditation and yoga. The reality is that any of these may be the right path for you, but you need to put in the work if you want to protect your sobriety and have the life that you deserve.
