Catchy title? Good! Now that I have your attention, let me explain. Drinking alcohol is physically addicting, but it is also a habit. Think about it. You go to the store, open the beverage, drink, pass out, wake up hungover, repeat. Alcohol abuse is just as much a habit of oral fixation as it is a physiological “habit.”

You also have to replace the drinking with something healthier. I have worked with a lot of people who start drinking a lot of sugary drinks, juices, and cola’s once they stop drinking alcohol. With the summer and warm weather creeping up on us, I encourage you to make some alcohol free beverages, keep yourself hydrated, and keep on keeping on in your sobriety! Here is a recipe for a sober spritzer:

Recipe- Blueberry Spritz

1 Can of plain Seltzer Water

Add 1/4  cup of crushed blueberries (or strawberries)

Add a splash of cranberry juice

Mix, and serve over ice
