How Can I Get Sober?
That’s the million-dollar question, isn’t it? First, do you want to get sober? The reason why you want to get sober is not as important as knowing how to get sober – but it is still important. You may want to get sober because your life is a wreck, you’re in pain, everything is a mess.
Maybe you want your family or your job or even yourself back. If you are considering getting sober, odds are that you may be an alcoholic or an addict. This diagnosis must be self-made. Only you can answer truthfully whether or not you’re an alcoholic or addict.
You can seek help to get sober for any reason. So if you’re asking yourself “Why get sober?” then finish reading this when you’re asking yourself “How can I get sober?” It doesn’t matter what your motivation is for wanting to get sober, but you really do have to want it. More than that, once you find the people who can show you how to get sober, you still have to be willing to do the work towards sobriety.
Jaywalkers Know Your Struggle
You presumably didn’t end up in the place you are now overnight. More than likely, you’ve tried to get sober before. Maybe you’ve tried many times. Well, so did we. We are named Jaywalker Lodge after the anecdote of the jaywalker in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. It likens the pain and insanity of alcoholism to the life of a chronic jaywalker who can’t stop breaking all his bones.
We were those people, we’ve been where you are now, and now we’re here in this unique position to help you get sober. So, why get sober? Because you are a valuable, useful, and necessary person and your life can be filled with hope, purpose, and joy that you can hardly comprehend right now. If you don’t believe that yet – well, that’s what we’re here for.
Build the Life You Deserve
How can you get sober? The same way we did, complete with personalized treatment for whatever your specific issues may be. Technically, the 12-Steps of recovery are what will get you sober, complete with access to a higher power that will change your life. Once you’re physically sober, detoxed, clean, that’s as physically sober as you’ll ever get – and it’s not enough. Abstinence has to be the start, and the 12-Steps are the best foundation to build upon. But the real “how” of sobriety is the pursuit of a full and meaningful life.
We won’t just help you get clean and sober – we will show you how to build a life in recovery that rivals your wildest dreams. We don’t believe that getting sober is a punishment for our “bad behavior,” and we don’t believe in punishing people who have a disease. Alcoholism and addiction are diseases. Getting sober and beginning a life in recovery is not a consequence of your alcoholism – it is an invitation to experience a life full of joy, fulfillment, community, and belonging.
How you get sober is becoming physically separated from your drink or drug of choice, and there are tons of places that can help you with that. The “how” that interests us the most here at Jaywalker Lodge is how to stay sober once you’ve gotten there – and that is exactly what we focus on at Jaywalker Lodge. We know that a life in recovery must be flourishing one if we are likely to stick around.
We Are Just Like You
You may be asking yourself, “How could a person like me ever get sober?” Well, we are someone like you, and we’re sober now. How we got sober differs in the details from person to person. Some of us have slipped many times, some just a few, and some had all but given up hope but decided to give ourselves one more shot. That’s how anyone can get the opportunity to stay sober – by just having enough hope to give it one more try.
When you take that shot with us, you get the benefit of being helped by people who know the struggle firsthand. What we didn’t know at first, and what you don’t know now, is that you are an amazing person with a ton of unique things to offer the world. You probably don’t believe it, but we know it’s true. So, how do you get sober?
By giving yourself permission to be hopeful. By being willing to entertain the idea that even you can get sober, stay sober, and learn how to live a happy, joyous, and free life in recovery. Do you believe you deserve a life filled with joy? We do. Let us prove it to you.
