In this book, it states, “Sister Ignatia gave each of her newly released patients a Sacred Heart Medallion, which she asked them to return before they took the first drink. Sobriety coins themselves do not necessarily help the holder stay sober, but studies have shown a connection between the visual presence of the coin and the holder's self-resolve. There are fourteen basic coins that are given to members within their first year of sobriety.The coins are meant to motivate the holder to continue their abstention from the subject of their addiction. Generally coins are given at one month, three months, six months, nine months of sobriety the first year. I’m not talking so much about dealing with the desire to drink, which is an animal in its own right, but more about all the other stuff that goes on in early recovery (and throughout our entire sobriety). Everyone who’s tried to get sober or managed to put together some time knows how freaking hard it is to stay sober, especially in the beginning.It is traditionally a medallion the size of a poker chip 33 mm (Standard) or 34 mm in diameter marking the sobriety time achieved, awarded for abstaining from alcohol while with the program.

Because we think we’re different or the rules don’t apply to us, and we can’t take anyone’s word for it. As soon as the novelty of physical sobriety wore off, I was hit with a ton of anxiety, fear, and negative thinking.The urge to move, marry, create or change is just our way of trying to RID ourselves of the feelings. The waitress drops an appetizer on the table and says “this is the spiciest thing you will ever eat.” How many sobers pick of their forks and take a huge bite immediately? No matter how hard we try to be different, or think we’re the exception to the rule, we are not. It was so bad that I found it difficult to do much of anything.
