How to get through the holidays when you’re recovering from addiction

How to get through the holidays when you’re recovering from addiction

Dealing with the holidays and being sober did not come easily to me. I really enjoyed going to holiday parties and New Year’s Eve events when I was drinking, because it helped me come out of my shell. Knowing I no longer could do that with alcohol by my side was a little frightening. I reached out to sober friends and family during these times because I knew if I didn’t, I probably wouldn’t leave the party sober.

Think the holidays are a bad time to job hunt? Think again. Most companies slow down between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, so hiring managers actually have more time to spend with job seekers. Come January, companies usually start hiring. The quicker you get in front of employers prior to then, the better your chances for landing a job.
