Alcohol Addiction - Where Is Your Future Heading

Can You See into the Future ?

If you have an alcohol addiction where is your future heading if you stay on the path you are on as of now?

Can you see success in the your future or will you crash and burn due to being addicted to alcohol? I thought I would ask a couple of questions to those that really haven't thought about their life and their future lately.

People sometimes think they will live healthy, happy and have longevity in their life even though they drink alcohol everyday and abuse it to no end. We are not machines, and speaking of machines, they too break down if not cared for and treated well. It is the same for the human body. It is bad enough that we wear out as we get older, so why in the world do we rush the process? Does the alcoholic have a death wish, because by abusing alcohol for years on end you too will break down. It may take some time, but sooner or later it will indeed happen and you will say to yourself, "why did abuse alcohol and abuse my body?"

If you think about your future, can you honestly say your future will be bright and filled with happiness? I did just that when I drank alcohol every single day for years and suddenly I realize this crap is killing me and ruining my family as well. It is then when you realize that your future is going nowhere fast.

Just think about what you can achieve and do in life when you are sober every single day of the year. Think about how you will feel in the morning waking up with no headache and feeling so refreshed after a good sound sleep.

Start planing your future with the one that you love and adore, such as your spouse and children. Make their future bright and happy because I think they deserve it with all the heartaches you may have caused upon them from your addiction to alcohol.

These are the things I did and still do to this day. I am trying to make up for lost time that I dedicated to the alcohol and not to the people that loved and cared for me. I am sure you know the saying, "it is never too late to change your life and live happy and healthy."

The only way you are going to be able to do this is to quit drinking alcohol and start a fresh and new life. This time you might want to include your family and friends. You will see that happiness doesn't come from a bottle, it comes from being free from your addiction to alcohol.

Breaking your addiction to alcohol is the best thing in the world, and finding your sobriety and making it long term is ever better. Look into your future and see what is in store for you if you continue to self-destruct yourself by drinking alcohol.

I know for me it helps to think about what life would be like if I were to continue to drink. I guess they call that "playing the tape forward." I don't like the end of that tape. It is so easy to romanticize the "good times" drinking, but really when I stop and think about it, the good times had become so few and far between it hardly seems worth it.

Crazy Mags you are so right! The bad certainly out weigh the good. I don't miss it one bit. I look to my future as a person that just wants to help others understand there is always hope and help if you truly want it.
