It's a new year, it's close to my sobriety anniversary, and it's my birthday! All these things happen within a few weeks of each other. This provides a great opportunity to evaluate my "bottom line" behaviors, or my sobriety definition, or my Level 4 behaviors, or whatever it is that you call the things you don't do anymore!
Many times, at the beginning of recovery, we're not sure exactly what we need to do in order to get sober. We're not sure what counts or doesn't count as a slip or a relapse. The reality is that you need to make that determination. As I just celebrated my 7 year sobriety anniversary, I thought it was a good time to evaluate my Level 4 behaviors. In this episode, I walk you through the tool I've created and use with my coaching clients to define my sobriety and how that has evolved over time.
