I Can Remain Sober If I Know I Can

“The Law of Sobriety”, my latest book, puts the importance of positive thinking front and center in recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. If you can’t see yourself as a sober person you will always see yourself as a person with an addiction. This is never a positive self-image. It is negative, harmful and highly counterproductive in your recovery efforts.

Seeing yourself as sober starts with envisioning your life without an addiction. Ask yourself:

  • What do I look like as a sober person?
  • What do I do as a sober person?
  • What are my goals as a sober person?
  • Who are my friends and supporters as a sober person?

By developing a self-concept of yourself as a sober, positive and successful person surrounding by supporting, caring individuals you literally create a mental reality that is positive and meaningful. This is far different than that negative image of the addicted you that you have harbored in your mind for years. Opening up your mind to the positive you allows options in your life that you simply couldn’t see before. You negativity and looking back was blocking the positive energy from the world around you literally trapping you in that dark, gloomy place.


I firmly believe that everything you need to be a sober, successful person is already in your world. All you need to be able to do is change your negative thinking and positive energy blocking to open up your heart and mind to what the universe is providing. This transformation is possible for anyone; but it isn’t easy work. Talk to an addiction counselor or therapist that uses the Law of Attraction and positive energy to make changes and you will be amazed at how wonderful the world will be to you.
