Recovery is a journey, and it can be encouraging to know that someone else has faced the same challenges and enjoyed similar triumphs. Support groups, online encouragement and Recovery blogs can all help you work through your feelings.
While every experience is different, Recovery blogs open a window into the blogger’s journey, which can help you stay focused and inspired as you navigate your own path.
The Five Best Blogs About Recovery
We’ve compiled a list of the five best blogs to follow while you or a loved one is in Recovery:
1. The Fix
The Fix offers a blend of information, reporting and first-person accounts of Recovery. It’s honest and sometimes difficult to read because it’s so blunt. You can also find stories about celebrities that prove no matter how much money and fame you have, no one is immune to this disease.
Many people enjoy the detailed breakdowns of studies and research on The Fix. It may inspire you to ask deeper questions about your journey in Recovery.
Soberocity‘s slogan is “Infinitely Strong.” Its content has a community-focused, “you can do it” attitude that may inspire you to share within the safe space. It publishes first-person accounts of addiction struggles along with messages of love and support as well as spirituality and news stories.
3. Sober Señorita
Sober Señorita follows a former high school and college partier as she navigates her newly sober life in Cancun, Mexico. Kelly’s blog began after she published a story on HuffPost about getting sober. It went viral, and she gained a crowd of followers eager to see her positive spin on the rewards of giving up drinking.
4. Understanding Addiction
Have you ever wanted to learn more about what causes addiction, what the latest scientific research about addiction suggests and why addiction is portrayed the way it is in movies and television? If so, then Understanding Addiction is the perfect blog to bookmark.
Marc Lewis, a neuroscientist, offers fascinating insights on all these topics and more. He presents his findings through the prism of his own struggle with drug addiction until age 30.

The Unpickled blog is very popular, and you can get just as much out of the insightful and touching comments as the blog posts themselves.
