Supporting Your Journey Toward Sobriety This Year
While many people think of affirmations as being some mystic and magical practice, positive self-talk has been proven to yield positive mental health benefits. The experts at North Georgia Recovery Center are here to share some tips to help you to introduce positive affirmations into your everyday routine.
What Are Positive Affirmations?
Have you ever heard someone tell you to be careful what you say because you’ll speak it into existence? There’s actually some weight to that, especially when it comes to how you speak to and about yourself. In fact, research has shown that practicing positive affirmations helps you to:
- Maintain a sense of integrity.
- Build self-confidence.
- Helps you to process information about yourself.
Affirmations are positive statements that help you to overcome self-sabotaging, negative, and overly-critical thoughts. The idea behind practicing positive self-talk is that the more you speak highly of yourself, the more you believe these statements to be true. Subsequently, this encourages you to make positive choices that help you to emulate these characteristics in your everyday life.
Examples of Affirmations
For those embarking on the journey toward a sober lifestyle, a positive affirmation can help you to combat negative thoughts and feelings you may have developed during your struggles with substance abuse.
If you’re interested in practicing positive self-talk, but you’re unsure where to start, here are simple affirmations that you can tell yourself or write down in your journal include:
- I am not my addiction.
- I am strong.
- I am worth believing in.

- Recovery is possible.
- Healing is possible.
- I am loved.
