: I really want to get sober, I know I have to detox and do meeting but how long does it take?

Theres not really an answer to that. Like we can guess how long detox will take but the other stuff is on you. How fast you are with your steps, how honest you are willing to be with yourself. That’s all really big factors in the time line.

All sober means is that you dont have drugs in your body when youre tested. It doesnt mean that youre in recovery or that youre getting over your addiction. Being sober is pretty easy if you can make it through withdrawals, its stopping yourself from using drugs that can get really difficult.

while I agree with the last person, I think you are focused on the wrong thing. Recovery is a journey not a destination. You wont ever actually “get” there. If youre asking when you can say that you’re sober, I’d say after after detox and some treatment.

Figuring out how to sober up can be really stressful. Once you stop taking drugs or drinking, it can take three or four days before you really start to feel clearer. If youre an addict, then youre going to start experiencing withdrawals pretty fast. This is where things can get tricky.
