Lake Worth, FL (PRWEB) December 16, 2014
The holiday season is a time for celebration with friends and family. While often an anticipated and happy time, many recovering alcoholics and drug addicts may find it hard to resist temptation. Millennium Treatment Group is ready to help these people by offering tips on how to stay sober during the holiday season.
Those invited to a holiday event should ask the hosts to be aware of their sobriety. If it’s a small, close-knit party, suggest that alcohol might be eliminated from the event. If the hosts are loving and supportive, then it shouldn’t be a big deal to stash the alcohol for the night.
If it’s a larger party or one is uncomfortable asking the hosts to keep the party clean, one should be choosy with their time. Stay until the alcohol makes an appearance. If it is around the whole time, stay until it starts to feel tempting. Always make sure to have an escape route. If one is driving with someone else, it could affect one’s ability to leave on their own time.
Avoid temptation by bringing a non-alcoholic drink. Or, if offered a drink, be specific and order something non-alcoholic. Be sure the host does not accidentally serve an alcoholic drink. With a drink in hand, it will be easier for one to avoid this from happening. This will also help one not feel obligated when offered a drink.
Look into attending holiday events hosted by 12 Step Programs. Just because it’s the holiday season, it doesn’t mean it’s okay to take time off from meetings. It may also help to see how others in recovery deal during the holidays.
Although the holidays may enhance temptation for those in recovery, remember that there are plenty of other ways to enjoy the season without being under the influence and still have a fun, happy, and healthy holiday.
Millennium Treatment Group offers treatment for recovering alcoholics, addicts and anyone else affected by substance abuse. For more information on staying sober during the holidays, call 1-855-522-1994 and get help now.
