Inspiring Sober Living Quotes From People Who’ve Been There

Living A Life Free from Addiction…

 

Whether you are just embarking on your recovery journey or you are years into a sober life, making the daily commitment to a life free from addiction is a challenge worth taking. Sometimes, when the struggle is particularly difficult, it can be helpful to lean on the support of others who have walked the same path and can provide insights into why recovery is so worthwhile. We’ve compiled a list of sober living quotes meant to inspire and support you wherever you are on the path:
 

 

Brian_Welch_SQ“We’re all the same. We’re just trying to make it through this journey. None of us knows all the answers.”
Brian “Head” Welch, Korn Lead Guitarist
 

 

 

 

 

Anthony_Kiedis_SQ“Being a drug addict in recovery is actually a great place to be because you’re forced to be looking at the rancid layers of the onion that you’ve been carrying around for a lifetime. Whatever degree of struggle it offers me, I’m actually grateful for. It keeps me working towards change, it gives me the desire for change. I like to get rid of the things that truly don’t work for me – psychologically, spiritually, mentally or whatever it is that’s blocking me or bringing me down. It’s real freeing. The alternative is bollocks. You get to a certain amount of pain where you realise you’ve been doing the same stupid things for your entire life but because you’re in such a rut, you forget it’s possible to change. Then one day you realise that you will do whatever it takes to get rid of this stupid feeling that you’re having. I know what my sobriety date is, so it’s easy for me to add up the days and months since then. Sometimes it seems like a lifetime ago and sometimes it seems like yesterday. Sure, I could go back there but I’m not interested in doing it though.”
Anthony Kiedis, Red Hot Chili Peppers Front Man
 

 

Colin_Morrison_SQ“I just want to be clean and sober and show people that if Scummy can change his life around, anyone can. I just wanna be a good role model and kind of just change my whole outlook because I want kids to look up to me. I’ve noticed that since I’ve cleaned my act up, so many opportunities have fallen on my lap and so I’ve got a lot of good things in the works.”
Colin “Scummy” Morrison, FMX Innovator

 

 

 

Art_Alexakis_SQ“It’s all about choices. Don’t put yourself in places you don’t want to be. If you can’t make good choices in those places, don’t go to those places. You have to find that desire to be clean and sober and to be in recovery.” 
Alex Alexakis, Everclear Lead Singer

 

 

 

 

Russell_BrandBrian_Welch_SQ“…I have freedom now and you can have freedom too. We can change ourselves, we can change everything…”
Russell Brand, Actor/Commedian/Activist
 

 

 

 

 

Andre_Agassi_SQ“But I got to a point where I realised that just because I didn’t choose my life doesn’t mean I can’t take ownership of it. That was the epiphany. But epiphanies don’t change your life. It’s what you do with them that changes your life.”
Andre Agassi, Tennis Champion

 

 

 

 

Robert_Downey_Jr_SQ“Job one is get out of that cave. A lot of people do get out but don’t change. So the thing is to get out and recognize the significance of that aggressive denial of your fate, come through the crucible forged into a stronger metal…” 
Robert Downey Jr., Actor

 

 

 

 

Bradley_Cooper_SQ“I would never be sitting here with you, no way, no chance [if I hadn’t gotten sober]. I wouldn’t have been able to have access to myself or other people, or even been able to take in other people, if I hadn’t changed my life. I never would have been able to have the relationships that I do. I never would have been able to take care of my father the way I did when he was sick. So many things.”
Bradley Cooper, Actor

 

 

 

Josh_Hamilton_SQ“There’s always thoughts about doing something I shouldn’t do. But that’s going to be rest of my life. Surround yourself with good people, people who love you and people who want you to do good, and now I’ve become a good contributing part of the community.”
Josh Hamilton, MLB, Texas Rangers
