Many recovering addicts will glorify the old substance abuse days, often claiming their life was more fun. But our story is that using wasn’t fun anymore. We needed a new way of living.

Expectations guide our progress in recovery, but having unrealistic expectations during the process sets us up for failure. When we set expectations so high, we add unneeded stress and decrease our chance of success.

Recently I went on vacation to Ireland. When most people think of vacationing in Ireland they think of Dublin, green landscapes, castles, pubs, Guinness stout, and Irish whiskey. This last part can be a problem for people in recovery from a substance use disorder. However, just because you are in recovery from drugs and alcohol doesn’t mean you can no longer enjoy your travels. Tonight, we talk about maintaining your sobriety while traveling. Tonight, we talk about Vacationing in Recovery.
