Crying Out Silently - How An Alcoholic May Suffer
Don't Suffer - Ask for Help
The cry for help, but no one can hear you because you are crying out silently. The alcoholic wants help so bad, but embarrassed to ask.
Crying out silently how an alcoholic may suffer is referring to the alcoholic that wants help with his/her addiction so bad, but does not know were to begin to ask the question that may save their life.
They may have lived in shame with their alcohol addiction for years or possibly hid their alcohol addiction so well that no one knew they even had a problem
The alcoholic knows their body and knows when they are on the verge of hitting rock bottom. This level of alcoholism sneaks up on the alcoholic ever so slowly until one day the alcoholic wakes up and realizes that they had lost everything.
It's not hard for the alcoholic to see what exactly is happening to them. One good way to see for yourself is to just look into the mirror and look at the person that is looking back at you. This person you see, you may not even recognize and everyone knows that mirrors never lie.
Don't Be Ashamed or Embarrassed
These people that are addicted to alcohol many times know they are a road to self destruction, but they maybe ashamed of their addiction or maybe embarrassed to even say they have a problem and need help.
By doing this you are prolonging your chances for sobriety and living a clean and sober life. Everyday that passes and you don't ask or want help to become sober is one less day you will enjoy the clean life.
Books on Alcohol Addiction
Stop Wasting Time
Stop wasting your life with an addiction and ask for the help you need to become sober. By you not saying anything will led you deeper into you addiction and just make it harder for you to find sobriety.
Don't procrastinate thinking it isn't the right time to ask for help. There is no time better than the present, believe me.
When I decided to stop drinking alcohol, fortunately I was able to do it on my own. I say on my own regarding no AA, nor 12 step program or Rehab Center, but I had one very important person that did help me and his names was God and he continues to give me the strength and the willingness to stay clean and sober.
Anyone can ask God for help if you truly want help. It is very easy, you just sit down a pray and tell God that you want help to change your life around and ask him to please help you in doing so, and believe me he will be more than happy to help you in your quest to become clean and sober. All you have to do is ask and believe and it will happen only if you want it to.
Please don't get me wrong, I do realize that many folks may have to enter a treatment center because of the severity of their addiction and to have help in their detox in a safe and professional manner looking after your health and your life.
If this has to happen than you must be willing to go to treatment. You must believe that you will overcome your addiction.
When you finally admit you have an alcohol addiction and you have finally surrendered to these horrible demons that have been controlling your life is when the road to recovery starts to take shape.
If you are one of those that have to enter a Treatment Center, don't forget to bring God along with you, because with him by your side, the Professional help that you will be receiving and the Positive attitude you must have, you are heading for sobriety.
Don't ever lose hope and never stop believing in yourself. Tell yourself that you can and will get sober and nothing will stand in your way of finding long term sobriety.
Always remember what I have said in many other hubs and that is : BELIEVE AND ACHIEVE!
