Holiday Tips - Live in Today

Dealing with the Holidays


Updated February 08, 2014

Visitors to the About.com Alcoholism Forum were asked to share their personal experiences in maintaining sobriety during the holiday season. Their replies provide helpful tips for those who may be struggling to stay clean and sober through the temptations of the holidays.

Leo's Holiday Tip

This is the day the Lord (read higher Power) has made, rejoice and be glad in it.

If we live one day at a time and stay in that day we need not worry about holidays. Many people seem to give them to much power by talking about holidays like they were some sort of evil thing waiting out there to get them.

The only way the future can hurt us is if we rent it space in our today. Look to this day for it is the life of life. Do today's work today and you need not dread the future (read holidays).

-- Leo
