There is no one way to get sober because everyone’s road to recovery will be different. While most people do not come on their own accord, some will arrive on a recommendation from a friend or a family member, and some will come as part of their court orders from the judicial system. If you started coming to recovery meetings because you need to get your court card signed, here is what you can expect.
Change is difficult, and you may only want to hang around others who drink and use drugs because that is what seems comfortable. Once you see the glow that sober people have, you may decide you want what they have and ask for help. Even if you are not ready to get sober, at least you will understand how wonderful people in recovery can be and know where to go when you are ready.
Recovery meetings are based on recovery unity, which means that people will want to assist you in staying in meetings and getting sober. You may be overwhelmed with the kindness that you are experiencing, but you will understand it better if you stick around for a while.
Most things come with instructions, and recovery is no different. Staying sober one day at a time takes suggested efforts and actions that are meant to stop your obsession with drinking and using drugs. If you open your ears and your mind, you might hear exactly what you need to relate and start bettering your life with recovery.
Although you may not think that you need to be in these recovery meetings, you will be amazed at what you can discover about your drug and alcohol problems. Heck, you may even concede to your innermost self that you are addicted to drugs and alcohol and find your way around these rooms. The answer is short and sweet that yes, you can get sober on a court card. You just have to be willing and ready to take the necessary actions, which will be more effective than just trying to get a signature.
