When an addict decides to reform and seek for sobriety, one important thing that he/she needs to remember is to forgive him/herself first for all the mistakes of the past. It is good to leave the past on a clean slate so one could move on to a hopeful future. Forgive yourself for becoming an addict and realize that you're not the only person in this world who has committed wrong decisions in life. Forgiving yourself helps in paving your way towards your goal to sobriety because it teaches you not to be too hard on yourself every time you encounter road blocks and mistakes. Forgive yourself every time you encounter pitfalls and just keep on moving.
