How To Keep Living The Clean Life After Surrendering To An Alcohol Addiction

Millions of people in our world drink alcohol as we all know, but some of us just overdue how much they drink and don't know the word social drinker or having a social drink.

Then again there are so many people that have surrendered to their demons and are now living the clean life as I have been for the last four years.

People that have stopped drinking alcohol may often ask, "how to keep living the clean life after surrendering to an alcohol addiction?" I asked those same words when I decided to stop drinking alcohol forever.

JUST HOW TO STAY CLEAN AND SOBER

When we decide to release our demons and start to live the clean life we will be fighting those demons each and everyday until they know they have no chance of taking over our life again.

The demons of alcohol will never completely go away because they will hide inside us just waiting for us to break down and take that sip of alcohol that will put us in danger of be taking over again by our demons.

Every once and awhile I get that urge to drink alcohol, and my demons are just waiting in the wings for me, or you, to slip up and take that first drink of possibly many more if we do so.

All of us need to strong and determined to stay sober and live the clean life forever. If we are weak, our addiction will start to take back over where it left off before we became clean and sober.

Temptations and urges will come about us every once and awhile, but stay strong and positive, and if you have the willingness and desire to say no to those demons that are knocking on your door, you will get through that urge, and it will go as it came. Don't give in ever!

MY TIPS ON LIVING THE CLEAN LIFE

  • Stay positive at all times no matter what happens in your life.
  • No negative thoughts at anytime.
  • Be proud of yourself of what you have accomplished.
  • Exercise each and everyday.
  • Eat healthy.
  • If being around those that drink alcohol bothers you, just stay away.
  • If you get that urge to drink while in recovery think of something happy that will get your mind off alcohol.
  • Keep your body and mind busy and active at all times.
  • Write articles as I do to help you stay sober.
  • Writing articles helps me because I know someone in the world will read them and maybe just one article might help them to get and stay sober.

NEVER GIVE UP ON YOURSELF

Once you have surrendered to your alcohol addiction, never give up or get disgusted enough to make you go back to your old ways of drinking alcohol.

If so, you will be so disappointed in yourself the next day, for you have let the demons once again back into your life. If and when you ever get that urge to drink because something is just not working out the way you wished it would, don't go to alcohol to fix the problem. It will never work. It never worked for me that is for sure. Alcohol only make things worse than they really are.

Anyone that has had an addiction and now are sober knows exactly what I am talking about. Alcohol fixes nothing even though at that present time we are drinking our sorrows away we think alcohol is making us make all the right decisions. Not True at all!

The few times I got those urges to drink I admittedly found something to do or I started to think of something other than alcohol. The urge will pass, at least it does for me, because you and I have to be stronger than our past addiction. That is the only way you will win against your demons, because believe me the demons are just waiting for us to mess up and start drinking alcohol again. Don't let it happen to you again!

Great tips and suggestions. You are an inspiration to those who are suffering from alcohol addiction. I can't imagine how difficult it must be to resist that craving of just having that one drink, but it's good to know that there are other outlets that serve as a distraction. Writing per say can be very therapeutic. For some people, alcohol can make them feel relaxed, but that's only temporarily since it's a depressant, which means that too much of it can actually end up hurting you in the long run. Another good reason to give it up. Whether it's running on that treadmill for an hour or lifting weights, exercise is one of the best stress relievers. It can actually boost your feel good endorphins and make you feel good mentally as well as physically. voted up useful.
