Why is this important?

Recognizing your sobriety date can serve as a reminder of when your life started improving compared to its previous state. Sobriety means more than giving up drugs and alcohol. It is an ongoing process that requires a commitment to a substance-free life, which can be difficult at times.

However, the significance of this date is a personal choice, and the decision is entirely yours. To learn more about how to prevent a relapse, check out our relapse prevention guide

Do I need to stop drinking and/or using drugs?

The decision to stop drinking and/or using drugs is a personal one and depends on individual circumstances. If substance use is negatively impacting your health, relationships, or overall well-being, it may be advisable to consider seeking support to address the issue. Consulting with healthcare professionals, therapists, or addiction specialists can provide valuable insights and guidance tailored to your specific situation, helping you make informed choices about whether abstaining from alcohol or drugs is the right decision for your health and happiness.
