What Is Stopping You From Getting Sober
What Are You Afraid Of?
If you are someone that has an addiction to alcohol and have had thoughts on surrendering to your addiction, then what is stopping you from getting sober?
What are you afraid of? Could it be that you won't know how you will feel with the absence of alcohol in your system? Are you afraid that your drinking buddies will say something in a negative way about your choice to be sober?
There has to be something that is making you still drink alcohol right. I know the alcoholic has this addiction, but just maybe, the alcoholic would love to have a sober life, but doesn't know how to go about it in the right way and maybe doesn't have the strength or willpower to just stop drinking alcohol once and for all.
What do you think the problem is with you and your drinking of alcohol? What is holding you back from changing your life and living a life of sobriety?
If you are afraid, don't be, because sobriety is a wonderful thing, and I have to say, you will never feel better about yourself and feeling healthier than ever as I do.
Just maybe then you can help others find their sobriety as I am writing this hub and hundreds of others in hope that I will touch someone in the world life.
At give sobriety a chance. There is no harm to at least try sobriety out and see how it feels to be sober for days, weeks, month and then years. Once you are past the hard part in the beginning the rest is a piece of cake. At least it was for me because I started to journey to recovery with the right frame of mind, meaning I had and still do a positive attitude and I continue to tell myself, " I have made it sober one more day."
Never let anything or anyone discourage you from your quest to living a sober life. If need be you may have to de-friend those that are not positive and supportive to your journey to sobriety.
I lost many of drinking friends when i stopped drinking alcohol, but on the up side, it was and is better than losing my own life to just drink my life away with people that really don't give one shit about you. I have found that these so called drinking friends were only friends because all of us had one thing in common and that was drinking and getting drunk together. That's it!!
Think about it long and hard before opening that can of beer or mixing that mixed drink. There is nothing from stopping you from getting sober. ONLY YOURSELF!
Have You Come up with Why You Still Drink?
There is a reason for everything in life and what we do makes all the difference of how our life will turn out in the future. For anyone that has an addiction to alcohol your life can only go one way and that is down hill to you hit rock bottom. Is that what you want out of your one and only life you have.
To wind up with nothing in your life, and only look forward to your next drink of alcohol. Is that the kind of life you wish to have? Not me! I too was addicted to alcohol for many of years until I saw just where my life was heading and bringing my family right down with me. They never did anything to deserve what I had put them though and either does your family.
All our families want for us is to be healthy and sober and enjoy life with them. Is that too much to ask for?
Just stop for one moment and think of what you are doing to the one and only body you have. You are slowly killing yourself my friends. When I look back at the days I drank alcohol, everyday, seven days a week, for years makes me sick to my stomach. What a waste of life that was. I lost so many fine things through those years and it just may happen to you, so beware my friends. "No one is excluded from the demons destruction to the human body."
I thank God everyday that he has given me the strength to get and stay sober for three years now and for the remainder of my life here on Earth.
