Does Drinking Alcohol Solve Your Life's Problems

Updated on May 5, 2012

LIFE'S PROBLEMS SOLVED ?

Everyone one in the world has had or has problems in their life. Many choose to correct the problems in the best way they can and figure those problems out in a sober way. Although there are so many people that turn to alcohol thinking that alcohol is the fix all drug. Does drinking alcohol solve your life's problems?

The answer to that question, in my own opinion is, No alcohol doesn't solve any problems, it only makes matters worse. The problems that people have when they turn to drinking alcohol to try to resolve them figuring the problem will disappear are still there the next day when they wake up. No alcohol or any drug will make your life's problems disappear, so why in the world do so many people turn to alcohol to try to fix their problems in life?

Sure, for the short time they are drunk and feeling no pain they tend to not give a crap about the problem and that's the main reason they started to drink in the first place. The only thing they got out of drinking alcohol to solve their life's problem is a good high and feeling no pain. That's it, and oh maybe a huge hangover the next morning, and with all that, the problem still exist and will continue to be there until this problem they have is handled in the correct way, meaning figuring it out sober and with a clear head and mind.

ALCOHOL NEVER SOLVES ANYTHING

If you are a drinker and love your booze, have you ever solved your life's problems by belling up to a bar or simply getting drunk at home? I bet you haven't, and don't feel bad because I never solved my life's problem by masking them with alcohol. I learned that sobriety and being sober solves the problem you might have much easier that trying to figure things out being drunk.

Have you any idea what your addiction is doing to you? I can say one thing, it doesn't solve any of life's problems. Take my word on that or maybe you have figured that out on your own. Drinking in moderation and socially is fine if you are the type of person that can drink that way. I wish I could of drank alcohol like that, but unfortunately my addiction would not allow me. My body just craved for more and more alcohol until the demons had enough for the night or I had passed out.

I was, as I am sure many people that abuse alcohol, are wondering why life isn't treating them right. Why is everything going so wrong? Why is my life so full of problems? By drinking alcohol and abusing it to get rid of any type of pain or washing away any problems you may have in life is the wrong way to approach anything.

Stand up to your life's problems without having alcohol being your crutch and your demons speaking for you. You can solve anything in life by doing it sober. No problem is life is to hard to solve if you put your clear mind to it and figure that problem out with no so called help for your addiction to alcohol.


HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT DRINKING ALCOHOL WOULD SOLVE YOUR LIFE'S PROBLEMS?

      Very true, drinking alcohol is never really a solution to life's problems. It may put one to sleep but never a good sleep. Thanks for explaining it well. I'm voting up and shared!

      Joelipoo, So true, so many people that are addicted to drugs or alcohol don't even realize they are not only hurting them self but all those that love and care about them. Tey are truly blinded by there own addictions.

      Alcohol, along with all other drugs, only make someone's life worse. It also hurts the lives of those around them too. I have seen people throw their lives away to drinking, and it is so sad. I am glad you realized this and are no longer in that situation.

      Alcohol can give you a temporary escape from your problem and it does not and never will solve any kinds of problems you have. Thank you for sharing such wonderful hub @the clean life. :)

      Escaping life's problems for a little while can be very appealing. Thanks for sharing this post. It's always good to plant the seed in helping people think about what they are doing and why they might be doing it. Awareness needs to come first before a solution can be found.

      Drinking was always the solution to fix everything. But now 10 plus years sober, it was number one cause of all the troubles. Nice Hub!!
