How to improve your chances at staying sober? Journal your sobriety.
One major problem with post addiction recovery is feeling very awkward and extremely uncomfortable around sober and normal people in social settings. Social awkwardness can be as painful as entering into addiction recovery. Not knowing what to say, how to feel and how to act in front of others in a social environment can throw you back into a relapse. Meaning in a social situations you might feel dizzy, disorientated, sweating of your palms and forehead, anxious and sometimes frightened as well as hyper sensitive and vigilant. This happens because all the years of isolating from social situations and people and addicts lose all his or her social skills.
