Is Your Life Worth A Second Chance?

How many times in your life have you given someone or something a second chance? You give this second chance because you either care for that someone or you are just being nice and just trying to help set things straight.

That's all well and good, but if you can give even and stranger a second chance than why do we not give ourselves one also?

The big question here is, "Is your life worth a second chance"? If you think it is worth it then why do we continue to abuse our precious bodies with drugs and alcohol?

I always wondered why I did that to myself, but any person that is addicted to any substance really does not think about that type of thing. We are, including myself, so wrapped up in our little world of being high or drunk that our life at that time doesn't matter that much.

We figure, I can live forever and nothing can bring me down. I am indestructible and this little addiction I have is really nothing at all, so we thought.

Everyone has an opinion and everyone is born with a healthy brain. We are the only ones that can make our own decisions whether it be a good one or bad. The decisions we tend to make when we are under the influence most of the time are poor ones.

Why is it that we have a hard time making a decision to just quit drinking alcohol or using drugs? I often wondered what took me so long to give my life a second chance.

When I realized and saw just how my life was heading in the wrong direction, I then decided to make the move and surrender to my addiction. You really have to surrender because there is no way in the world that you can defeat those demons without getting out of your denial and just surrendering.

I wanted to give myself and second chance in life and be able to enjoy what little time I had to do so. Our lives can be snuffed out any second. No one knows when it's our time to meet our creator, so enjoy every moment while you are here and enjoy it sober so that you can remember each moment.

 

So, if you think you are ready to make that change in your life, then just get started and map out your new path in life. The path and the road to recovery. It will take some real hard work, but anything worthwhile comes with hard work. Breaking the chains of addition is certainly worth the time and the work so that you may have a wonderful future life.

Don't cut your life short by something that can be totally avoided, just by making the right decisions in life and living the life of sobriety.

Give your life a second chance and say goodbye to your addiction.

As they say...."Sometimes Goodbye Is A Second Chance".
