How Will You Feel After You Stop Drinking Alcohol
WHAT SO MANY PEOPLE ADDICTED TO ALCOHOL WONDER AFTER THEY STOP DRINKING
If you have an addiction to alcohol you may wonder how will you feel after you stop drinking alcohol?
The question was always in the back of my mind, and I am sure many other people that want to stop drinking alcohol feel the same. They want to stop drinking and know it is killing them more and more with each alcoholic drink they take in their bodies.
For myself, I wanted to stop drinking alcohol and knew it was way out of hand, but I was worried of how I would feel if I were to stop drinking. Would I get sick or have the DT's? Would my body go crazy from the the absence of the alcohol that is slowing ruining my health and my life?
I bet if you wanted to stop drinking these thoughts have gone through your mind too.
HOW I FELT WHEN I STOPPED DRINKING ALCOHOL
This is how I felt when I stopped drinking alcohol. First of all, I procrastinated for years about stopping drinking. I would say, maybe I would just slow down with my alcohol intake, but that never happened.
How many of you have said the same thing and it never happened? to be able to stop drinking completely is a tough thing to do for anyone that has an addiction to alcohol. the alcohol is a huge part of our lives and we often wonder would be able to survive life if alcohol wasn't a part of it anymore.
I have to admit, I was scared to death to stop drinking, but I knew it had to be done. When is enough, enough? Is it when you are lying in bed so sick from all the drinking you have done through the years.
Is it when you are in the hospital because you abused your body so much from drinking that your organs are shutting down slow but sure?
When I finally made my mind up to surrender to the one thing that was running and ruining my life, I knew and I promised myself that I would never pick up an alcoholic drink ever again.
If you are okay with not ever drinking again and stick to that promise to yourself, you are on your way to recovery and a life of long term sobriety. If you are unsure that you can not keep that promise than I would say you are not ready to stop drinking forever.
I felt so nervous and on edge, not knowing what to even do with my hands that help those beer cans for so many years. I knew that first weeks and months would be so hard, but I had such a positive attitude that I would conquer this addiction to alcohol, I knew with that attitude I would prevail and nothing or no one would make me drink alcohol ever again.
After weeks went by I started to look back and thought to myself, wow I have just been sober for 3 weeks. I then started counting the months I was sober and now I am counting years.
Ever day that had passed,when I laid my head on the pillow at night, I said to myself, "one more day sober for me." What a wonderful feeling to feel this huge accomplishment in my life, and in yours if you decide to stop drinking and live your life sober.
Believe me if you have that determination to beat this addiction to alcohol, you will will the battle. I can not tell you how great it feels to be able to wake up each morning feeling fresh and with no hangover.
One day at a time and one step at a time. By doing so, little by little your life will start to come back in a positive way and you will be so proud of yourself as I am every single day I wake up and still being sober.
I look so forward to my sober date each year. I count the days to my next sober year. I feel proud, happy and healthy since I stopped drinking alcohol. I look at the world in a new way and want to help others realize that it is never to o late to get and stay sober. All you need is the will and determination and it will work, although you CAN NOT CHEAT. It is all or nothing. There is not in between and if you are good with that you are on your way to a brand new life and you will be giving the ones that love and care so much for you a new and happy life too. Do it for yourself and for your family. You will never regret sobriety!
Once you get and stay sober you will feel as if the weight of the world is off your shoulders. You no longer will have to carry that crutch around with you meaning your addiction to alcohol. You will be feel to come and go as you please and not worry about being pulled over by the police.
You will not have to worry about saying the wrong thing to someone that you truly care about, like when you were drinking alcohol. You will remember the next morning after being out for the evening.
You body will begin to heal from the years of alcohol abuse. You will be proud to say when you are asked if you want a drink and your answer would be, "I DON'T DRINK ANYMORE!" I have to say it feel so wonderful to say those words to someone that is offering you alcoholic drink.
Believe me they will ask how you do it, and not having the urge to drink when someone offers alcohol to you. I jump right on that question and tell them anyone can get sober and stay sober if that is truly what you want out of your life. Positive attitude, determination and the willpower to say NO THANKS.
