Finding Peace Within Yourself After Struggling With An Alcohol Addiction

Updated on March 17, 2012


So, you have been fighting and struggling with your alcohol addiction and have finally surrendered to your addiction. Now is the time you need to find the peace within yourself. Finding peace within yourself after struggling with an alcohol addiction may take some time, but it will happen.

We have been tortured by our demons for so many years and they have ran our life on their own terms for all those years with no regards for our life or others that share our life. Everyone involved with our alcohol addiction suffers one way or another.

So, how do we find our inner peace? For myself, I found my peace when I finally surrender to the very thing that could of eventually killed me. What a relief to get the devil off my shoulder and start to live a happy, healthy and sober life. As an alcoholic, now sober, I often wonder now "how in the world could I be so weak to let a liquid in a bottle try to ruin my life among other lives?"

As every alcoholic knows the addiction to alcohol is a horrible thing, and to not have any control over it is even worse. Our addiction has become a huge part of our lives. You know what it is doing to you, but you feel stuck and think there is no way out of it. You are at wits end because maybe you are thinking you would like to get sober, but you may be afraid to stop drinking alcohol for the fear that you would be in worse shape without the alcohol than you are drinking it.

When you quit drinking and start your recovery process you will feel on edge, nervous and a feeling of emptiness. At least these are the feelings I had when I stop drinking alcohol. You tend to wonder, will you be able to stick to being sober or will you relapse because of something that may happen to you in the future which would bring negativity into your life. Many alcoholics that get sober find it hard to deal with something that may happen in their life so they turn back to the magic drug (alcohol) to deal with their problem, and that leads them back to square one and trying to get sober once more.


Sobriety is the peace within you my friends. There isn't anything in life that better than living a good clean, healthy, honest and sober life. To be able to appreciate everything in life through the eyes of being sober.

Once you have made up your mind to get sober and stay sober the peace inside you will arrive and that feeling will be unreal. The true feeling of freedom. You will be feel from all the heartaches and pain your alcohol addiction has given you and others as well. The feeling of peace within you is like a breath of fresh air, and I can tell you it will feel like the weight of the world is off your shoulders, and so is the devil off your shoulder that has been sitting there making your every move for you for many years.

Say goodbye to your demons once and for all and start enjoying life clean and sober and before you know it, the peace within you will come and your body will start to heal from what you addiction to alcohol has done over the years. Enjoy your peace and freedom my friends!!

Now that you have found sobriety and the peace within, you now have the freedom to come and go as you please without worrying about getting pulled over by the police for drinking and driving. You will be able to speak clearly and think clearly. You will be able to make good decisions instead of bad ones while being drunk. All of this and more comes from being able to stop drinking alcohol and getting sober.
