Living In Denial Can Keep You Addicted
What Is Denial ?
The word "Denial" means the absence of acceptance, refusing to accept and sometimes can be followed by depression.
Yes, the word Denial. Why so many people addicted to alcohol or any type of drug live with word pinned to them by many others that may be clean and sober.
Do these words sound familiar? "you know you have an addiction problem so why don't you get out of denial you are in and face the fact you have a addiction to alcohol"?`
The Fear to Admit
The fear to admit you have any type of addiction problem just prolongs your chance to quit your addiction, whether it be addiction to alcohol or addiction to drugs. So, if you are afraid to admit you have a addiction problem and continue to live in denial then getting sober is a long way off.
In my eyes and in my experiences living in denial can keep you addicted. You will never be able to help yourself if you can not admit there is a problem. This addiction problem you can not hide from, because the addiction will follow you were ever you go and if let unaddressed it may just put you to a early grave.
Stand up and Get out of Denial
Stand up and face your alcohol addiction head on and get out of the denial that you have been in for so long.
This was one of my biggest problems and I'm sure many others have the same problem. The problem of not seeing what is happening to you and your life. How can we be so blinded to our addiction and how is it that we are afraid to admit or addiction to alcohol?
We hide behind the bottle as if we haven't a worry in the world. Guess what, you can't hide behind that bottle because your addiction is bigger then that one bottle. That bottle may be the one that will ruin your life and will have no remorse of doing so.
Get out of the denial, live the life you were intended to live.
I myself, used to say, what is the problem? I'm not hurting anyone and not bothering a soul, so why get on me for drinking alcohol? Little did I know, I was hurting many people in my life including myself.
Snuff out Alcohol
You may not realize that you are living in denial, because you can't see that there is a problem with one certain addiction. Only the people around you are very well knowledgeable to see what is exactly happening to your life but you can't see it.
Can you imagine if you just gave in and got out of the denial you have been living in for so long?
You would be able then to start on the road to recovery and live a clean and sober again. All this is on hold all do to denial and the addiction you think you don't have.
So, how about it, lets try to face the truth and admit to yourself there is a problem with drinking alcohol and you would love to seek help or possibly do it on your own if you think can.
Quit drinking alcohol and start a new life for yourself and all the people that love you and care about you.
Remember, there is nothing wrong with admitting you are addicted to alcohol so, don't be embarrassed or ashamed of your problem, just do something about it and correct the problem.
That's all there is to it. Get out of denial and get clean and sober!
