To many, the terms “recovery”, “sober fun”, and “sobriety” just don’t elicit much excitement, especially from those involved in them.
Native Americans have created the term “Wellbriety” that combines the words “sobriety” and “wellness” to more fully describe the process of recovery. In addition, it avoids the stigma associated with those other words.
How about you? How do you feel about these words? Have you found any alternative terms that you feel more comfortable with?
