Celebrate Jesus’s Birthday Sober- 5 Reasons to Get Sober Before The Holidays


The holidays are supposed to be filled with memorable moments, joyful events, and family fun, but if you are drunk or high off of drugs, you are not able to enjoy them to the fullest extent.

Don’t wait another moment; if you enter a faith-based residential addiction rehab now, you could be sober in time for Christmas.

Why You Need to Get Sober Now & Not Later This Holiday Season

While many people may simply delay recovery until the New Year, why wait? At Faith in Recovery, we are giving you a list of five reasons to get sober before the holidays.

The Holiday Could Make Your Addiction Worse

For many people, the holiday blues are real. This time of year can be stressful and filled with impossibly high expectations. One survey found that 66% of people felt lonely, 63% felt a lot of pressure, and 55% were focused on happier times in the past instead of enjoying the present.1 These bad feelings are often the root of an addiction problem and can quickly lead to more drinking and drug abuse.

Waiting Could Lead To A Serious Problem

The longer you wait to get drug or alcohol abuse treatment, the more likely that your problems get more serious. DWIs are common this time of year and can cost you more than just a lot of cash. You may think your addiction isn’t that bad, but don’t wait until legal problems, major family blowouts, or getting fired proves otherwise.

Your Family Will Thank You

Chances are your substance abuse problems have been a burden for your family and may have put a strain on your relationship with them. Give them the greatest gift of all this holiday season, your sobriety. They will be so thankful to spend this time with you.

Enjoy the Holidays (& Remember Them)

If you get sober before Christmas, you will be able to enjoy this day without the haze created from being high or drinking too much. You will be able to spend quality time with your family and remember the true meaning of Christmas. Your family will appreciate you being fully present, and you will actually be able to remember these fun times for years to come.

The Holidays Are A Good Time To Strengthen Your Faith

The holidays are not just about spending time with your family and getting presents. It is important to remember the religious significance of this time. Faith is a wonderful thing to lean on as you begin your quest to get sober. As a Christian rehab in Pompano, we believe that there is no better time to start your sobriety journey because of the powerful religious significance that comes with this time of year and the frequent reminders of God’s strength that can help along the way.

There are so many reasons to get sober that you shouldn’t wait.
