The 'Rock Bottom' Sobriety Myth

One of the biggest myths about sobriety is that you need to hit rock bottom to quit drinking.

To ruin relationships, lose a job, destroy your health, or do something regrettable. 

I'm now 575 days sober and I never hit bottom.

I felt fat, broke, and sick, but it wasn't rock bottom. 

You don't need to reach a low point to make a change. 

It's okay to change a habit whenever you're ready, and under any circumstances you choose.
