Holiday Tips - Give of Yourself

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.

Thea's Holiday Tip

Just some food for thought, in our fellowship we strive for gratitude, and we know our healing comes from giving, so what better times (if we can't do it on a daily basis yet) to chose Thanksgiving to feel gratitude (not altitude) and Christmas season to give like we have never gave before.

All of us have something to give in and out of the fellowship even if all we can afford is a smile. Who knows one might be very surprised, that this is so much fun (and fulfillment) that they may incorporate into one's daily life.
