There Are Some Basic Rules for Achieving Long-Term Sobriety, Says Phil Lovin Overcoming addition takes a lot of work, and most people who are serious about getting sober are willing to do everything possible to avoid a relapse, says Phil Lovin . He has been working in the field of addiction recovery and ministry from the past many years, and has helped hundreds & thousands of people achieve sobriety. According to him, there are some basic rules of recovery that you ought to follow to ensure long-term sobriety.

Avoid High-Risk Situations:

Avoid High-Risk Situations Phil Lovin believes that the best way to ensure successful recovery is to create a new life where it’s not easy to succumb to addiction. Avoid high-risk situations, including people, places, or things that may trigger your addiction. Of course, you cannot avoid all high-risk situations. But if you are aware of them, you wouldn’t get caught off guard, & you’ll have a chance to prepare yourself. If you aren’t prepared, even small triggers can easily turn into strong cravings.

Think Positive:

Think Positive Having worked with so many people in addiction recovery and ministry, Phil Lovin feels that negative thinking is a major risk factor for both developing an addiction & for relapse. With a negative mind-set, you may have thoughts like – If people knew the real me, they would not like me. I’m too damaged to fully recover ever. Recovery is more work than it’s worth. My cravings will be overwhelming, & I wouldn’t be able to resist them. So, why even bother.

Ask For Help:

Ask For Help Develop a recovery circle by asking for help, suggests Lovin . A recovery circle must include – Close Family Members Close Friends Health Care Professionals Counselors Self-Help Recovery Groups
