How To Find The Inner Strength To Get Sober
You Love Alcohol but Crying Inside for Help
Everyone of us have the strength to do anything in life we please, but how to find the inner strength to get sober is one thing many of us have a difficult time achieving.
Getting sober and staying sober is a tough thing to achieve, but it is very very possible for each and everyone that has an addiction to alcohol. I too had an addiction to alcohol big time and thought I would never see the world of sobriety again.
My life was run by my addiction to alcohol for many years and it came darn close to making me lose everything I worked for my entire life, including my loving family. So, when I finally admitted I had a drinking problem and got out of my denial that I lived with for so long I asked myself these questions.
Maybe just one of these questions I asked myself when I wanted to get sober will help you or someone you know that has an addiction to alcohol get sober and hopefully stay sober.
The Questions That Helped Me Get Sober
When you ask these questions to yourself you MUST honest with the answers:
- What do you love better, your addiction or your family?
- What loves you more your addiction or your family?
- What do you get along better with your family or your alcohol demons?
- Do you think your addiction will save your life or your family?
- What will kill you first, your addiction or your family?
- Who can you have more fun with, your addiction or your family?
- Who will stand by your side when in need, your addiction or your family?
Do you get the point yet? You need to be stronger than your addiction to alcohol and not let it run and ruin your life, and the lives of others that love and care for you so.
You have to have the willingness and the strong desire to get and stay sober. You need to keep a positive attitude and continue to tell yourself that can and will get sober no matter what it takes.
So, be totally honest with yourself and really think long and hard which is more important in your life. Your life, your family, wife, children and friends or your addiction to alcohol.
If you know whats good for you, and your family, I would hope you chose your life, family and friends before an addiction to alcohol which will kill you in the end. It will get you sooner or later and when you are lying in bed so sick form abusing your body for so long, you will then see why it is so important to get sober before it is too late.
Please think about it and do the right thing, not only for you, but everyone that is in your life as well. Sober Up and see the light at the end of the tunnel. You will never be sorry that you chose the life of sobriety rather than being an alcoholic.
