Addictions Do Not Discriminate

Updated on August 13, 2013

You Are Not Any Different Than the Next Person When It Come to an Addiction

Are you a person that thinks that you are indestructible? Do you think that whatever you may do that is harmful to your body will not attack you? Being addicted to drugs or alcohol will sooner or later catch up to you and do some real harm in your life!

You must know that "addictions do not discriminate" and will attack any one at any time that abuses drugs or alcohol. Do you think that you are one of the ones that will get away with abusing drugs or alcohol? If you think for one moment that you are safe from the effects of drugs or alcohol you are totally mistaken!

You are no different that any one else. Addictions will hit any ones life if not taken serious while drinking or using. These addictions will never discriminate and will ruin any ones life if you let them. You need to have full control of what you are doing in life and do it in a responsible way.

Many people that are addicted to drugs or alcohol think to them self, "nothing will ever happen to me because I abuse drugs or alcohol." It may effect others, but not me. I am not addicted enough or depend on my drug of choice enough for anything to happen to me. Does anything here sound familiar to you?

I know for a fact, I didn't think anything would happen to me, and by God's grace I was blessed that nothing did happen too bad. I too was one of the ones that thought I was indestructible and I wouldn't been effected by my addiction to alcohol. I was fortunate enough to surrender and stop drinking alcohol before it was too late for all involved.

Stay in Control of Your Life

Staying in control of your life can make or break you, meaning if you don't drink alcohol responsibly it will lead into an addiction before your very eyes. It won't happen right away and you will enjoy your partying days, but sooner or later the time will come when you can't live without the alcohol, and drugs for that matter. Now this life controlling crap has you right where they want, ADDICTED! Being addicted to drugs or alcohol is nothing to mess with for it will beat you if you let it. The only way to beat your addiction is to surrender to it and forget about it forever. No going back to your old way of life and start living the way life should be lived and that's clean and sober.

These addictions don't care who you are or what you do in life. All the addiction knows is that if you are weak and have now control of your life they will take over your life whether you like it or not. You must be stronger than you demons that wait in the wings to destroy your life.

Addiction do not discriminate. It doesn't matter if you are rich or poor, famous or just a regular guy or gal. Addictions don't care what color or race you are. All an addiction cares about is to make them self comfortable in your body and ruin your life.

So all I have to say is to watch what your are doing and watch what you are experimenting with, because if you are not very careful these addictions will get you and you will have a tough time getting out of it.

      Addiction is such a difficult battle, because the nature of it sucks the power away from you. You can't ever give your power over to anything - and yet the addictive substances give you the opposite feeling. So hard to fight those mixed messages in the brain. You have to be strong!!

      Addictions break you down - your physical health, your mental health, your emotional health - it attacks it all. It's so sad to see what it can do - to see it from the outside - to see it consume someone.

      Anyone who overcomes addiction is a Super Hero in my book!! Better not to get there in the first place, but if you fight hard to get clean, there is no better reward than to LIVE YOUR LIFE again!!!
