Achieving sobriety is something to be celebrated, and a sober lifestyle can be fun and fulfilling.

Who says sobriety is boring? Achieving sobriety after struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction is something to celebrate, and leading a sober lifestyle is fun, and more importantly, fulfilling. 

Many shocking statistics focus on how many people relapse during recovery. Data cited by the National Institute on Drug Abuse notes that between 40% and 60% of people in recovery from addiction will relapse. However, despite setbacks, as many as 1 in 10 American adults overcome addiction and go on to lead healthy, rewarding lives.

So, what’s living in sobriety really like? From partying to traveling, sobriety is safe, healthy and worthwhile. Read all about the benefits of living sober in these articles.
