There are some common traps that people from Great Yarmouth may fall into when they are trying to become sober. These obstacles to the path of sobriety can include such things as:
- The individual may give up alcohol or drugs but they feel to deal with the driving force behind the addictive behaviour. This means that they will only be physically sober and the chances are that they will either relapse in the future or fall into new maladaptive behaviours.
- One of the other reasons for why people from Great Yarmouth may fail to make progress in recovery is that they have failed to make use of the available addiction treatment options. Many of these people would benefit from some type in an alcohol or drug rehab as this would give them the best start they need to make a success of recovery.
- Another of the common traps that people fall into is they begin treating their recovery as if they were serving a prison sentence. This type of attitude is almost certainly going to make living sober less than enjoyable. The reality is that when people walk away from these substances they have the opportunity to enjoy great happiness, but they have to make the most of this opportunity.
- When people first become sober they may continue with their old habits. This could include things like visiting bars or spending time with drinking or drug using friends. While the individual is engaged in such activities their recovery will be on shaky ground. It is therefore vital that the individual tries to break away from these old habits.
One of the other common traps that people risk is that they become complacent and over confident. This means that they stop doing the things they need to do in order to maintain their sobriety.
