Using Twelve Step recovery principles, My Sober Life, created by Hazelden Publishing, provides several valuable tools to help young people stay clean and sober in their recovery from alcohol and other drugs.
Celebrate your growth as your days, hours, minutes, and seconds in recovery add up on the Sober Counter, located on the home page.
Receive guidance, challenges, and inspiring thoughts with 365 days of unique messages that help you work through essential topics such as relapse prevention, peer support, spirituality, managing emotions, and other key life skills. If a certain daily message isn’t what you need that day, simply swipe forward to the next message or hit “search” to find topics by keyword. Save your favorites so that you can return to them later or share them with a friend.
Never miss your daily practice again. Chose a time of day to receive a reminder with a teaser of each day’s motivational message.
STOP CRAVINGS. STAY MOTIVATED.
Combat cravings and stay focused on your goals by uploading and storing up to five images of friends, family members, passions, and aspirations with small captions that you can view anytime to remind you of what keeps you motivated in your recovery.
Track the obstacles (stress, anger, anxiety, etc.) you face each day, as well as power-ups (meditation, honesty, exercise). View your trends over time to easily see where you need to work and where you are excelling.
COMMUNITY SUPPORT SYSTEM
Designate three key supporters—your sponsor, family members, or sober friends—who will respond to a quick message when you feel your sobriety might be in jeopardy.
RELAPSE PREVENTION TOOL
Learn about preventing and dealing with relapse and create your own personalized relapse prevention and response plans.
Quickly access a list of the Twelve Steps. Click on any Step for more information about how to work that Step and understand when you are ready to move to the next Step.
Find a meeting near your current location with links to the AA (Alcoholics Anonymous), NA (Narcotics Anonymous), and Al-Anon/Alateen websites.
