The months of December through January are a hectic time of year that are chock full of stress, expectation and temptation. It can be a particularly challenging time of year for people in recovery, especially early recovery, as we can feel vulnerable and be blindsided by triggers and cravings. Even people with long term sobriety can find themselves susceptible to the pressures of this busy time of year. It is a time for us to prioritize self-care so we don't become complacent. Preparedness is the KEY to surviving the holidays with our sobriety (and our sanity) intact!
On this week's Bubble Hour, we will be discussing the difference in strategies required depending on one’s stage of recovery.
