Approximately 14.4 million people in the United States struggle with alcohol abuse, and only 7.9 percent receive treatment.
If you're someone who has worked hard to overcome addiction, then you know how challenging recovering in isolation can be.
Everyone has an addiction to something. That addiction may be videogames, collecting food, or alcohol.
When you crave something, it is hard to quit. Still, when you want it bad enough, you somehow do it.
At some point, most people in recovery will face the challenge of staying sober at a party.
If you're early on in your process, it's best to avoid parties completely. After all, sobriety is hard enough as it is without being surrounded by alcohol. If you've been sober for a few years, though, you should be more comfortable with parties.
