Drama Doesn’t Happen to You, It Happens by You

Sober Life Is Better

If you really think about it, how dramatic is your life when you’re sober? Do you lose your car, get into random bar fights, end up in jail, wake up not knowing where you are or who’s lying next to you? All of these situations may make for a good story, but for those of us who have already been there, we much prefer keeping our past where it is, and the drama of addiction away from our future.

The Law of Attraction simply means that we bring into our lives whatever it is that we focus on. If you’re focused on living a good life, helping others, and strengthening your recovery, you’re likely to manifest those things. If you’re living your life as a victim, pointing fingers, and constantly taking from others, you’re traveling a dangerous road back to where you started. You attract what you put out there, and victims attract drama.

It is easy to tell when someone is going to create and attract drama- they’re the “no drama” people who “hate drama” and “stay away from drama”. Drama can happen, and conflict resolution is the way healthy, mature people handle it. Those who adamantly protest the existence of drama are inherently creating it right then and there.

Accepting Responsibility

If you accept responsibility for all of your actions, and realize that every single decision in your life was shaped by you, and you alone, you will begin to free yourself from the vicious cycle of fear, negativity, and yes, addiction. We may not be responsible for our disease, but we are responsible for our recovery.

The process of healing isn’t dramatic, but the transformation is. Which would you prefer, a drama-filled life, or a dramatic transformation? Sobriety is simple. Living by the principles of honesty, integrity, and being of service may sound difficult, but it is so much easier than living in the chaos of addiction.

How Seeking Treatment Affects Your Life

Seeking treatment is the first step toward dramatically changing your life. We hope you take that first step by calling The Lakehouse Recovery Center. Instead of coming to, not knowing what you did last night, you can wake up here, have breakfast, and do yoga with new friends.

It already sounds easier, doesn’t it? We will teach you how to live your life without drugs and alcohol, and most importantly, how to have fun doing it.



You may be worried that if you get sober, you’ll never have fun again, but this is the furthest from the truth. If we didn’t have fun in sobriety, no one would be sober. Sobriety actually lets us enjoy our lives, without the drama and without the pain of addiction. If you want to get sober, call us. We are available 24/7, toll-free at (877) SOBER | (877) 762-3707. You can recover, your life can change, and you can do this.
