— Life in Early Recovery
When people first become sober they can feel a bit overwhelmed by their new reality. They now have to face life on life’s terms, and they will no longer have the option of running away to their chemical refuge. Life can be tough initially for people in recovery, but the situation can be improved if the individual develops some type of routine early on. This will provide them with a bit of structure and that can be comforting. So long as the individual does not become too obsessed with their routine it can be a wonderful asset.
