Close Your Eyes Forever

Updated on February 17, 2012

In this Hub I want to try an explain what the title "Close Your Eyes Forever" means to me.

I write so much on alcohol addiction and ways that I overcame my addiction. I want to be able to help someone else that is struggling with the same in my writing. Some people may need Professional Help, but for the fortunate like myself, just bite the bullet and go Cold Turkey and don't look back.

It is something that many of us don't really think about, but the meaning of the title, as we all know is, "Death". Maybe it was accidental, old age, suicide, murder, or just self destruction and sudden death, caused by our own selves.

We all know that self destruction is caused by the person that is destroying their life. Most of the time it is our addictions that lead us to this stage in our lives.

Closing your eyes forever is just what it means, "FOREVER".

Why do we do this to ourselves? Why is it that when a problem or situation occurs, so many of us lean towards the bottle for support, in hopes that the problem or situation will disappear? Well those people are entirely wrong if they think that will happen.

The only thing that will happen is that the problem will be there the next day after sobering up. But, what we can do is to try and make our alcohol addiction disappear. This will be a huge task for many, but not impossible to achieve for any of us, if you truly want it to happen.

Each person is addicted differently either with drugs or alcohol or addicted to something not even related to drugs or alcohol. At any rate, they are all addictions with different levels and severity.

If we want to live the clean life then we must try to change our thoughts, our habits and our life in general. It will take some real hard work and pure determination to succeed, but it can be done.

We need to know that when we go to bed in the evening we will wake up with our eyes open and not have a sudden death do to an overdose or alcohol poisoning. Quit drinking and save your life, you're worth it and you won't be sorry you did.

I'm not writing to preach to anyone, but I'm just trying to make a point that there is HOPE for anyone that wants HELP and is willing to make a change. It's never to late and I am living proof of that, as many other people are that had an addiction and became sober.

It will not happen overnight, but it will happen a little at a time, and you will feel so much better as time goes on. When we became addicted, that did not happen overnight either, it took time to get to that point.

I never knew how great life could be being sober. You can have just as much fun and even more without the crutch.

If I knew just how great sobriety was years ago I would have changed then, but better now than later, for sure.

Don't try to lie to yourself thinking you don't have a addiction problem, because if you are trying to lie to yourself then you must be addicted and just won't admit it or surrender to it.

So the bottom line here is, don't let your eyes close forever. Get help, get sober, and live the life that you and your families deserve to live.

God Bless to all.
