Finding Your Purpose and Meaning in Sobriety with Alex McRobert 

Finding your purpose and meaning in life will help you transition to a life-long recovery and sobriety. A purpose might be an activity, self-improvement goal, or an impactful pursuit, and it’s a great way to avoid a relapse. Addiction is a symptom of something wrong and a lack of purpose in life. It is an attempt to fill the void with something that makes us feel alive.

Anyone who has gone through sobriety breakthroughs can attest to that. Finding out why you’re here is the key to overcoming addiction and living a sober life. Anything is possible when you are sober!
