Thankful for Sobriety on Thanksgiving

Holidays are difficult for many who are addicted to drugs and alcohol.
For most, Thanksgiving is a time of intense reflection about the past and introspection on how far they might have come in the last year. This type of thought can often be a joyous event that a person celebrates with friends and family. However, it’s no secret that the holidays are known for being a difficult time for many people addicted to drugs and alcohol. With the copious amounts of opportunities to drink or use, the financial, familial, and traveling stress, and the general pressures that come at the end of the year, the chances for relapse seem endless. Not to mention the fact that many people addicted to drugs often feel stuck in a place where they might only be seeing the things they’ve done wrong, or view another year as a failure as they attempt to get clean. It can sometimes seem like having a year filled with active drug addiction and feelings of happiness, gratitude and peace at Thanksgiving are mutually exclusive.
