Warding Off the Holiday Blues

Tips for Keeping Your Spirits Bright

The holiday season can be an especially difficult time for those struggling with substance abuse and addiction. Fortunately, there are ways to help keep your spirits bright this time of year.

Surround Yourself With Loved Ones

For many people struggling with addiction issues, the holiday season can be especially difficult due to the fallout that their substance abuse problems have caused in relationships. This can be triggering and can even lead to isolation and relapse if you’re not careful.

Whether you choose to spend time with your family, friends, or even your mentor—surround yourself with people who care about you and support your decision to be sober during the holidays. Not only can they help you to remain positive, they can also be a shoulder to lean on while keeping you accountable too.

Practice Gratitude

Expressing thankfulness and gratitude can play an important role in the recovery process. This is because choosing to lead a life of sobriety can be mentally and emotionally taxing and expressing what you’re grateful for can help to ground you. Whether you keep a journal or express your appreciation to those around you, expressing yourself can prove to be a cathartic process.

Remember the Reason for the Season

While many people suffering from addiction issues feel as though they’re missing out on seasonal festivities centered around drinking and partying, it is important to remember the reason for the season. Take time to acknowledge how far you’ve come in your journey, the people that love and support you, and remain positive.
