How Alcohol Can Change Your Body - Mind - Soul

If you have an addiction to alcohol, have you noticed how alcohol can change your body, mind and soul?

Before you started to drink and abuse alcohol I bet you were a bright, clear minded individual, right? How do you look at yourself now that you have been caught up in an addiction to alcohol?

Do you still have what you had before you started drinking heavy each and everyday? For myself, I noticed a huge change in my body, mind and soul. All you have to do is to look into the mirror and you will see how your physical appearance has changed.

Mirrors don't lie, nor do pictures, so why are you continuously abusing your body with alcohol?

WHAT HAVE YOU NOTICED IN THE CHANGE OF YOUR LIFE?

If you are addicted to alcohol, have you noticed anything different in your appearance, actions or change in personality? Can you see anything different when YOU look into a mirror or are you blinded by your own addiction?

YOU MAY SEE THIS:

  • DO YOU KNOW WHO REALLY IS LOOKING BACK AT YOU IN THAT MIRROR?
  • IS IT THE SAME PERSON THAT YOU KNEW BEFORE ABUSING ALCOHOL?
  • ARE YOU PROUD OF WHO IS LOOKING BACK AT YOU?
  • ARE YOU ASHAMED OF WHAT YOU HAVE BECOME?
  • ARE YOU GAINING OR LOSING WEIGHT?
  • DO YOU THINK AS CLEAR AS YOU DID BEFORE ABUSING ALCOHOL?
  • DO YOU THINK OR DO OTHERS THINK YOUR HEALTH IS DECLINING?
  • WHAT WILL IT TAKE FOR YOU TO WAKE UP AND SEE WHO YOU HAVE BECOME?
  • DO YOU THINK THE DEMONS OF ALCOHOL HAVE TAKEN OVER YOUR BODY, MIND AND SOUL?

THIS DOESN'T HAVE TO BE FOREVER, IN FACT IT CAN STOP RIGHT AT THIS SECOND!

WHAT SHALL WE DO TO CHANGE OUR LIFE AND LIVE SOBER?

Here is my opinion, and my experience of just how I changed my life, and now living a life of sobriety.

FIRST: You have to admit that you are an alcoholic and that you are in denial. You need to want to be helped and start living the clean life. It is a must that you admit you have a problem and get out of that denial you have been living in for so long.

That was the biggest problem for myself. I didn't want to admit, although deep down inside I knew my problem, but never wanted to admit to myself or anyone else. Once I admitted I truly had an addiction to alcohol is when things started to change in my life.

I sat down and took a hard look at my life at that moment and thought about what my life would be like in the future if I continued to drink and abuse alcohol. The answer was very clear that if I were to continue drinking my life would be ruined and I would lose everything I worked so hard for, and that includes possibly losing my family. Alcohol is not worth it. It is not worth losing everything for something that is perfectly avoidable.

All you have to do is to want a new and better life and get out of denial. Once you have done that, the next step is to take action and make that new life for yourself and the family that loves and cares for you.

If you want sobriety in your life, you will do anything it takes to achieve it. You need to have a positive attitude and continue to tell yourself that you can and will get and stay sober no matter what it takes.

When I mentioned how alcohol can change your body, mind and soul, sobriety WILL DO the same thing. Sobriety will change your life, your body, mind and your soul, but the difference is, it will all be for the better in your life!

Just give sobriety a chance, and let it into your life, and you will see just how happy, healthy and wise you will become.

Hello Mark. Very useful information, thank you. I only enjoy less than 7.5% alcohol in wines, more than that is something not enjoyable anymore. I do that for the heart and thankfully, I still am in complete senses looking at the mirror, lol... kidding!

You had one of the best decisions -choosing your life and most of all, your family, over alcohol. You're the man and strength of the home... wonderfrful of you. Thank you for sharing that to us, men should read this. :=)... allow me to share. Blessings and more blessings for you and your family. -:=)Tonette
