Alcohol Rehabilitation Treatment Centers And Why You Should Enter Them
COLD TURKEY VS. REHAB. CENTERS
In this hub I would to clarify that even though I got and stayed sober since October 2009 and still going strong, doesn't mean what I did was the right way to detox. I took a huge chance by not entering an Alcohol Rehabilitation Center in order to detox in safe and healthy manner with Professionals by my side.
Alcohol Rehabilitation Treatment Centers and why you should enter them is what I would like to explain here.
As I said above, I wanted to get sober for years, but just didn't have the willpower to let my addiction to alcohol go. You must have sobriety in your heart and mind to make this work. Many people had said to me that I should enter a Rehab. Center, and of course I told them, "I can do it own my own."
I kept putting off getting sober even though I knew I had to do something fast. My addiction to alcohol was getting further and further out of hand and I was heading down to that place we call "Rock Bottom."
In some of my blogs and here on HubPages, and my personal blog, The Clean Life I stated that I went cold turkey to get sober, and I have had a few comments, some not to nice regarding how dangerous going cold turkey was, and I was putting out the wrong message to those that are suffering from an alcohol addiction and want to get sober.
I just want everyone to know that entering a Rehab. Center is the right thing to do. Yes, I was fortunate that I found my sobriety own my own, but would advise everyone else to seek Professional help when you decide to take that first step in changing your life.
WHY YOU SHOULD ENTER A REHAB. TREATMENT CENTER
The main reason to enter a Rehab. Center is that you will be taken care of in the proper way and will have trained Professionals monitoring you all through each day you are in their care.
The Councilors will advise you and give you the right guidance so that you will be able to go back into society as a normal sober person.
There are the Doctors, trained nurses, and the staff of Professional Councilors that will be there for you. You then need not worry you are harming yourself even more by trying what I did by going cold turkey.
They have the proper medications, and the knowledge that will help you as you go through alcohol detoxification.
I was certainly very lucky that I never got sick in anyway, but I had a rough time in the beginning, meaning, very nervous, shaky, out of sorts, severe worrying, not being able to sleep, short tempered, on edge 24/7. The urge to drink alcohol was always with me, but I had to stand up to my demons and just say NO I can't drink anymore!
I must admit, I made my mind up to get sober and did it cold turkey. I was scared to death. I wanted to get sober BUT did not want to go into a Rehab. Center for a couple of reason.
One reason was I didn't have the money to even think about going into Rehab. and the second reason, and probably the biggest reason was, that I was ashamed and embarrassed of my addiction to alcohol and tried to hide it from my family and friends.
I didn't want my family and friends to know just how bad off I was regarding my addiction to alcohol. Now thinking about that, I was very foolish to even think that way and put my life in danger by going cold turkey.
So, if you feel as if you need help getting and staying sober, don't do as I did, and enter a Alcohol Rehabilitation Treatment Center for the proper care and Medical Help. Get sober the safe and healthy way.
God Bless all those suffering from an Drug or Alcohol addiction, NEVER give up hope for your sobriety. If you have the will, desire and the determination to get sober and stay sober, IT WILL HAPPEN!!
REMEMBER THESE WORDS: GET ALL NEGATIVITY OUT OF YOUR MIND, SUCH AS I CAN'T GET SOBER, BECAUSE YOU CAN AND WILL!!
THINK AND ACT POSITIVE AT ALL TIMES BECAUSE, BEING POSITIVE WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
