Hello, why do you think some addicts/alcoholics manage to get sober, while others can’t seem to make it to the other side. I feel like the stars literally have to align in order for someone to get sober. In my case I had to hit my rock bottom while remaining open and willing and get treatment when I was infact ready for treatment. Like I had gone through treatment 3 other times before I got sober but...I wasn’t ready to quit, I hadn’t lost enough to my addiction to want to give it up. I barely got sober by the skin of my teeth, like had I made one wrong decision in that first year I would have gone right back. I hope this question makes sense, I’m curious what other people think? What has to happen or what change has to occur for someone to get sober?
