How Great Life Can Be Just By Living It Clean And Sober
What a Great Feeling
Just imagine how great life can be just by living it clean and sober. It is a feeling like know other, especially when one has been addicted to alcohol for so many years of their life.
I can relate to those who are addicted to alcohol and have been given the title of an alcoholic. For some reason, I can't handle the title of alcoholic, but I guess even if you become clean and sober you will always carry that harsh word along with you where ever you go in life, but you know what, I can handle it now because i know better and I am now clean and sober and that's all that matters now.
The word sobriety in many alcoholics lives and minds is unheard of because they believe, and they think there is now hope left. They may think that they are too far gone and too addicted to get out of the life style they now lead.
For myself, I never thought I would be able to surrender to something I loved to do and also enjoyed the feeling of that all mighty buzz, but I under estimated myself and I didn't think I had it in me to stop drinking alcohol.
With the power of Positivity and the power of our God I was able to overcome the addiction that ran and almost ruined my life. We the alcoholics, are on a spiral turn downward right to rock bottom if we don't take charge of our life and take action of changing it before it is too late.
Living Life Sober
Living life sober is one of the best things anyone could do for themselves and their families as well. The families as we all know suffer right along with the alcoholic, but there is one small difference and that is that the alcoholic has the luxury of feeling that buzz or high while the family sits back and puts up with everything that goes along with the alcoholics life style and the alcoholics mood swings.
The families are the one that worry and wonder if the alcoholic will ever see the light and make the decision to quit drinking alcohol. They wait patiently until one day, they have had enough and start to try to convince the alcoholic to seek help and tell them they must stop drinking alcohol and get clean and sober. They try to explain to the alcoholic that they are ruining their life and they will die at an early age and that they are ruining their families lives along with their own.
The alcoholic always thinks that they are doing nothing wrong, as we all know, and they live in that little world of denial until one day that bottom falls out and they may lose their jobs, their families and in some cases their life.
So you may ask yourself, why do I continue to write articles on alcohol addiction and how it can and will ruin ones life and my answer to you is that I will continue to write these articles until the day I die in order to get the point across to all that are addicted to alcohol and drugs as well. To explain that they should believe in themselves and know deep down that what they are doing is wrong, but can be corrected if they want that clean and sober life. Never give up on yourself and believe in yourself and if the willingness and desire to change is there than you are on the road to recovery and your clean and sober life.
I want everyone in the world that reads these articles to know that there is always hope and professional help for anyone that truly wants to become clean and sober again and live the clean life. All you have to do is to want it and want it bad enough to surrender and quit your addiction once and for all.
Make Your Life Count
Think How Your Life Could Be
Put your thinking cap on and think just how wonderful your life would be waking up each and every morning with a clear head, not hung over, wondering did you do something or say something wrong the night before in that bar or where ever your were that you may regret when you awake.
Think positive and get the desire to find your sobriety and live the life that you were put on this earth to live.
Think of all the wonderful things you can do with your loved ones and enjoy and take in all those memories and them remember them forever because you are not in that fog with your addiction.
Remember, we are here on earth only one time, and you had better make the best of every minute, because as the minutes, hours and days pass before your eyes, they can never be replaced or brought back into your life.
