Are You Addicted To Alcohol - The Truth Will Set You Free

Updated on April 30, 2013


Here is a question for all those that think they may have an drinking problem, and for those that may think they don't. Ask yourself this, "are you addicted to alcohol, the truth will set you free."

The truth will set you free simply means that so many people that drink and ABUSE alcohol think to themselves that there is no problem whatsoever with their lifestyle and how much alcohol they drink.

How about all those people that say to you, "you have a real drinking problem and you look at them like they have two heads and disagree with every word they speak. Are you living in denial my friends?

If you would only admit that you indeed have a drinking problem, and tell yourself the truth, the truth just may set you free, and I mean free as if you finally admitted you are an alcoholic and you are getting out of the denial you have lived in for so long. You are asking for the help needed to live a clean and sober life.

There is nothing to be ashamed of and you should not be embarrassed of your addiction to alcohol.

Many of those that abuse alcohol lie to so many people. They try to hide the real addiction they have. You maybe able to fool some of those people, but you are only lying to yourself.

Why can't you tell the truth and stop lying to others, and especially to yourself.


If you are addicted to alcohol then just open up and tell the truth. People will admire your honesty and offer to help you to get clean and sober. Your job is to accept that offer and go with a life of sobriety.

There is nothing better than the truth, because the truth will indeed set you free. You will feel so good that you got your addiction out in the open and are asking for the help you need to get sober.

Can you imagine keeping your addiction a secret for your whole life. There are ways to do that for sure. Especially if you are an functioning alcoholic. I would have called myself a functioning alcoholic for the simple reason, almost my entire family and dear friends had no idea that I even had a addiction to alcohol. They simply thought I just love to drink a few beers. Man I hid that real well, but the problem was I was only fooling myself. Sure I fooled many others when I finally came out and told the truth here in my hubs and my personal blog, The Clean Life.

Their words to me were, "I didn't know you even had a drinking problem Mark." The fact is that I didn't even know I had a drinking problem because I lived my life in denial like so many alcoholics do.

So the bottom line here is, Tell the truth and the truth will set you free. To be free from the addiction of alcohol that will sooner or later take your life, one way or another.

      If we are not to suffer from alcohol addiction, then we should stay away from alcohol. And everyone is familiar with the disadvantages of alcohol.

      Nice hub Mark.
