CELEBRATE NATIONAL RECOVERY MONTH BY SHARING WHAT HELPS YOU STAY SOBER

gratitude1-1024x459In honor of National Recovery Month, AfterParty has created the “Share What Helps You Stay Sober” project. How can you participate, you ask? Well, every day of September (starting on the 1st and going—yep—till the 30th), write down or take photos of those things that have helped you in your sobriety. Could be the Big Book, your kitten, a Sephora gift card, a book on polyamory or anything else (we don’t judge). The point is that you’re doing it. Then:

Post these as Instagram photos and tweets (even go crazy and Snapchat if you want) throughout September. Make sure you tag us on Insta and Twitter and include the hashtag #APM30days so we know you’re out there and can tell everyone else! (If you’d prefer to remain anonymous, you can email us and we’ll get it out there.)

And then what happens?

We’ll feature our favorites on the site and social media the hell out of each of them. That’s right, during Recovery Month, gratitude reaps rewards (and not just in your soul).

  2. Knowing that alcohol isn’t the answer to whatever problem I’m facing (frustration, stress, loneliness, depression…). Knowing I have other tools to make myself feel better that do not carry the negative consequences that drinking did for me (yoga, meditation, socialization, reading..). Knowing that one drink will not be the last and I cannot afford to go back down that road.

    What keeps me sober is, my new found relationships with my beautiful daughter and my oh so patient and amazing wife. Writing my blog helps me by keeping my journey very public. Today I reached 293 days sober.
