The question of how to find sober living in Ela Illinois has been occupying my mind for the last few months. After moving into a lovely house on the Northside of Chicago, I really wanted to get settled and have a normal life, not having to constantly think about what I was going to eat for dinner that night or what I was going to do over winter break. It is quite common for people in transition to be a bit anxious and this can manifest itself as compulsive behavior when it comes to maintaining your stability and sense of normalcy in your surroundings. One particular night after being abruptly moved into a new house on the Northside of Chicago, I had what was known as a “Blackout”. For five or six hours I could not sleep and eventually fell asleep in my bed at around midnight.
It was pretty scary sleeping through that because normally I would have curled up into a protective ball and shut out everything around me. Eventually I was able to get up and move around, but it was a pretty scary experience for me, in terms of transition, and I thought that I would like to share with you how I learned how to find sober living in Ela. I am now settled into a house on the Southside of Chicago with my boyfriend and our two dogs, Sharp dizzy. I am grateful that I did this early on in my transition because now all my friends that are in the same boat as I am are constantly asking me where I am living now, which is great because it really helps you in terms of support and inspiration.
So I am now fortunate enough to be living in a transition zone with my best friends. As someone who is very social by nature, I didn’t know how to find sober living until I started moving back to the Northside of Chicago from the South. The Southside is a much more social place and there are more options for people who need transitional living than I had initially realized. It was not easy for me to find sober living, but I am glad that I did and now I can honestly say that it is the place for me to live.
