Celebrating Sobriety: The Importance of Mini Milestones
I try to give myself little milestones, like days. I remember, I went shopping, I bought myself something nice on net-a-porter com- which I had never shopped on before.
In the latest episode of Seltzer Squad: Staying Sober In The City, Kate Sander and Jes Valentine discuss the significance of mini milestones in sobriety. Kate shares her excitement about hitting 1,000 days sober, while Jes talks about going to a wedding sober for the first time. Despite encountering some challenges, both hosts agree that celebrating mini milestones is a crucial aspect of sobriety. For Jes, it meant buying something nice for herself on net-a-porter.com, while for Kate, it meant doing a little gratitude prayer every night.
Navigating social events without alcohol can be challenging, but Jes and Kate offer some helpful tips for staying sober. They suggest bringing a sober friend as a plus one, and being open and honest about your sobriety with others. While some people may be curious or defensive, others may be inspired by your decision to live a sober lifestyle.
The hosts also discuss the fear of missing out (FOMO) that can arise in sobriety. While it can be difficult to let go of old habits and social circles, Jes and Kate remind listeners that there is a whole community of sober individuals who are ready to support and encourage them on their journey.
Ultimately, mini milestones are a powerful way to celebrate sobriety and all the hard work that goes into it. Whether it's buying yourself something nice, doing a gratitude prayer, or simply taking a moment to reflect on how far you've come, celebrating mini milestones can be a source of inspiration and encouragement for those in recovery. So, join Kate and Jes in celebrating your own mini milestones, and listen to the latest episode of Seltzer Squad: Staying Sober In The City, on alcoholfree.com!
