The Webster Dictionary definition of sober – not drinking or using mind altering substances – is more of a definition of being dry. Mike and Glenn discuss how sober is more than not drinking, it’s the byproduct of working a quality recovery program.
So what does sober really mean? Sober is characterized by reason, sanity, or self-control; showing mental and emotional balance. Are you emotionally balanced?
Physically balanced? Spiritually balanced?
Glenn and Mike lay it out at the coffee shop like this: “We’re on the sober path. We’re not at the sober ski lodge, we haven’t arrived. Sober is the journey, not the destination.“
