Alcohol Addiction-Till Death Do Us Part (.08)

Updated on August 13, 2013

I thought about whether or not I should write this Hub and I said to myself, why not. I want to try and make a point of what some of the consequences can be when being addicted to drugs and alcohol. This is the only way to make an impact on what I want to get across to people that are addicted and that think they are indestructible.

I know that anyone that is addicted to drugs or alcohol does not go to You Tube and look up "Accidents due to Alcohol" or "Death from an Addiction", because they simply just don't care, I know I didn't care, that is for sure. Those people are in their own little world of make believe.

What I am trying to do by writing these hubs about addictions, is that I have gone through that horrible life and I came out ahead, although a lot of people are not so lucky.

I want to hopefully help someone that has an addiction understand that there is HOPE for all that want to make a change in their life. There is no such thing as a failure. You are only a failure when you quit trying. So, try and make a difference in you and your families lives.

The videos are graphic, and some may not want to watch, but they are putting across a message of just what may happen to someone that is addicted to alcohol and doesn't think straight when it come to making any type of decisions in life.



I never in my wildest dreams ever thought that I would beat my addiction to drinking beer. Yeah, life is good, and even better being clean and sober.

I hope that if anyone has watched the above videos it has helped put a little light on the subject of alcohol addiction and how a life or lives can and will be changed within seconds.

Please think about how your life, and an innocent persons life, and your and their families lives will change all because of foolish thinking of the addicted.

      Julie, thank you so much for reading and commenting on my hub. It's great to hear that you are giving it your all to stay sober. Just keep telling yourself that can and will stay clean and sober. That is exactly what I had to do and still do to this day (over 2 years now) and it feels like 2 months believe or not. Stay strong Julie and you will conquer this addiction once and for all.

      God Bless

      I didn,t watch the videos but still get a chill when I think of the number of times I drank and drove my car. Hopefully one day at a time those days are behind me.

      Lorlie I understand and believe me I don't blame you for not wanting to watch. On the other hand the ones that really need a reminder I hope they can just take a quick look. It just might change their life (I Hope)

      I'm like bayoulady, I guess, I can't watch the films, either. But that doesn't mean I don't appreciate another alcoholic/addict's efforts to reveal the truth about addiction. I do. Hopefully some will see these who need to, desperately need to.

      You're a blessing here on HubPages, the clean life, and keep writing these hubs! I certainly need reminders!

      Sometimes it is only death that releases someone of their addition. Everytime we see people like you, that have escaped with a solid decision and a dedicated life to sober habits, we rejoyce. What a good example you are. You do show the world overcoming can be done. You are great!
