Are You Living In Denial Or Living In Recovery
Denial or Recovery - Which One Are You in ?
This is the question only you yourself can answer. This statement was brought to my attention by a very good friend of mine a one of our own great Hubbers and it really made sense to me beings that I lived in denial for so long and really never even knew it. I believed that my life was just perfect and the rest of the world was wrong.
The word denial was never even thought of by me and I'm sure this goes true for many people out there whether it being addicted to alcohol or drugs or living in denial in other ways in live.
So the big question here is, "are you living in denial or living in recovery?"
i can't stress it enough that living in denial, you are not fooling anyone but yourself. We don't want to admit to ourselves that we just might have a problem even though we are told so many times by our friends and loved one and we still can't see it.
I for one am so happy that I finally admitted I had a problem and did something about it before it became too late. I have learned through my experiences of being addicted to alcohol that is a very powerful and crippling addiction and if you live in denial throughout your addiction and don't listen to anyone speaking to you then the addiction will take you down, but you don't have to let this happen once you stand up to your demons or any problem not associated with addictions.
Living in Recovery
Living in recovery of anything in life is nothing but a big PLUS for all involved in the recovery process.
For myself, and all those that were effected by my addiction to alcohol, recovery is the highest accomplishment (I and you) can every achieve. You must be so proud of yourself when you the person that lived strictly in denial has now realized they are doing wrong not only to themselves, but family and friends as well.
I know for a fact even though it took many years to realize my wrong doings in life, but the wait was well worth it because it taught me the true meaning of life and just how life can be snuffed out purely by an avoidable addiction to alcohol or drugs.
I must tell all, that if you can get out of denial and really want to change your life you will never be disappointed in your final decision to seek recovery.
Don't Be Chained to Your Addiction
This picture, when I look at it make me sick at my stomach now knowing that this addicted liquid in that mug can and will run and ruin your life.
I never wanted to discourage drinking alcohol for those that can handle it and to know when to stop drinking. I write these articles for those like myself that don't know when enough is enough and can't take full responsibility for their actions and behavior while tilting that glass up.
For those like myself, that some have ruined relationships, lost their jobs, lost their families all because of an addiction should really think about how to make it right, not only for yourself, but make it right for all others that are involved and effected by your addiction.
I write to inform all those addicted to anything that there is hope for all if you truly want to change your life for the better.
Believe in yourself and believe that you can get out of denial and start the recovery process. Think positive thoughts always in anything you do in life and if you believe you will indeed achieve anything including your sobriety.
