This blog is strictly intended as an outlet and should in no way replace professional help. IF YOU ARE FEELING SUICIDAL, CALL 911 PLEASE (there are more resources for help at the bottom of this page).

There’s no “right” way to get sober. Some people need different combinations of help, including detox, meetings, counselors, medication, or online outlets and resources – you need to decide what could be right for you. If you’re not sure, you should speak with your health care provider, for starters. Not everyone gets sober the same way, but it is certainly possible! Here are some helpful resources.

If you need help

Here are some of my favorite sites for help:

Mental Health Resources

There’s definitely a connection between substance abuse and mental health disorders. Everyone is mental, ya know. Some of us are just better at hiding it. Since most mental illnesses are easy enough to hide, it can seem simpler to just not tell anyone and suffer alone. The more we talk about our shit, the less stigmatized it will become. There’s no reason to continue suffering. Help is out there. Find it.

When all else fails

Google that shit and take it one moment at a time!

  1. Chrystal! I LOOOOVE your site – thanks so much for helping me feel like I’m not the only one with these thoughts about sobriety, anxiety, stigma etc, etc. I’m actually a writer for a marketing firm that promotes addiction recovery sites and my job is to seek out cook sober bloggers like yourself and collaborate. It’s a good opp for cross promotion and there’s no money involved – it’s just a swap of content basically. Would you give me a call or let me know best way to get in touch with you? It’s a little much for your form here so I don’t want to bombard you with a bunch of garble that’s easier to handle in a quick call.
    I’m at 561-455-6769 and you can reach me betw 9am and 9pm EST, Hope to hear from you!! JOY

  2. Hi,

    I’m writing to see if you are still actively updating your page:

    My name is Anthony and I work with, a free web resource that provides information about addiction and mental health issues.

    We’ve recently created a Sobriety E-Book that I think you might be interested in. It goes well as a resource with our newly added Relapse page:

    I believe this page would be a valuable resource to share with your readers. Would you consider adding it on your page to help spread awareness?

    Thank you for your time. Have a great rest of your day!
