Are You An Alcoholic That Lives In Denial

Are you an alcoholic that lives in denial and doesn't want to accept that you have a drinking problem and need help?

I can certainly relate to any alcoholic that has this problem of living in denial because I was the exact same way. I didn't think there was any drinking problem at all, only my family and friends thought so. I asked myself, "how can I have a drinking problem, I just happen to love beer." I never said that I had a problem, but deep down I had somewhat of a clue, but that good old denial stepped right in and made me think I had no problem with drinking alcohol at all. Everyone else was wrong and didn't know what they were talking about.

Does any of this ring a bell to any of you alcoholics out there living in denial? I hope so, because if this does ring a bell to you, then you should take a good look at your life and how you are living it.

These people that say we are alcoholics and living in denial are so right by what they tell us. The problem with us is that the alcohol, drinking and abusing it, has blinded us from seeing exactly what is going on in our lives. The demons have taken over and are telling us alcoholics that we have no problem and that the rest of the world is dead wrong.

Sure, the demons inside us are scared to death that we might decide to change our life around and cut them off of the alcohol that feeds them.

Think About What You Are Doing

Please take a moment to think about what you are doing to your life and others that love and care for you. Yes, we the alcoholics have been taken over by our inner demons and it so hard to break loose from those demons that have control of our life.

We are so addicted to alcohol and need it to get through our everyday lives. When I think just how alcohol took control of my life, and ruined others lives, it pisses me off so bad that I had no strength to say I have had enough and I want my life back and live that life of sobriety once more.

Well I have to say that sobriety isn't just going to come to you without a lot of effort and willingness on the alcoholics part. It is either you want to drink and abuse alcohol for the rest of your life, and miss out on so much that life has to offer you, or you want to change your life for the better and start living a clean and sober life. It is really that simple.

It is kind of like, do you want to live or do your want to die from a completely avoidable thing like drinking alcohol.

Get Yourself out of the Denial You Live In

You all know who you are that are living in denial. I too did the same thing by living in denial, and I have to say, we are not stupid people by any means. It is just that the addiction to alcohol has taken over our lives and we are scared to death of what might happen to us if we finally get out of denial and get and stay sober. I think by my own experience with drinking alcohol, but now sober, I felt the same as all of the other alcoholics out there in the world.

Remember, it is not the end of your life if you have an addiction of any sort, but a new beginning of a new life when you finally get out of denial and start a fresh and new sober life. You will never be sorry that you did, as I am not sorry one bit. It was the best thing in the world I could have ever done, not only for my own self, but all those in my life that loved and cared for me and didn't want to lose me over an addiction.

You can do it my friends, trust me. I never thought I would ever be totally sober and living a life of sobriety, but it happened and will continue being sober for the rest of my years here on earth.

Stop living in denial and start living with a positive attitude, and tell yourself that you have an addiction to alcohol and you want the help you need to get and stay sober, and to live with long term sobriety. TRUST ME, YOU WILL NEVER BE SORRY YOU DID! ASK FOR HELP!

I know more than one person who is in denial of being an alcoholic. They claim they just enjoy a drink or two...or 20. They even talk about people with alcohol problems. Interesting to me how people can go into denial about this. Good points ...and voted up.

@ Carol - Thanks Carol for reading and your comment. Alcohol sure makes you think that there is nothing wrong at all. We just don't see it until one day you see the light as I did. Your body can only take so much and if you want to live a long life then you will do something about it to change your life as I did and so so glad I did.
