What Does Emotional Sobriety Look Like?

You achieve emotional sobriety when you have:

  1. A sense of being fully present in the moment and able to face your reality, no matter how uncomfortable or challenging it may be.
  2. An overall experience of your life as joyful, interesting and optimistic.
  3. A sense of ease and comfort in your relationship with yourself and your primary partner, family members, friends, and coworkers.
  4. A feeling of belonging in the world — of your connection to something greater than yourself — a sense of direction and purpose.
