Updated on July 12, 2014

Break the Chains of Your Addiction


Living Life Sober

For many people that have an alcohol addiction, they seem like they have forgotten what living life sober feels like. When one is so addicted to alcohol or drugs for that matter, their world only revolves around getting drunk or high, but they are not doing this on purpose, it is the addiction that is controlling them. They have let their experiment with alcohol or drugs get way out of hand and now it is hard to break loose from what now is part of their everyday life.

They have let the addiction run their life and now the problem is that they want to get sober but there addiction says no.

These people that are addicted are now chained to their addiction and having a hard time breaking these chains.

Don't Let Problems Make You Relapse

If you have a addiction and want to get clean and sober it is very possible only if you want it bad enough. Anything is possible in life, all you have to do is be determined enough and have the willingness to let go of your addiction and find sobriety.

How to live life sober one day at a time is a challenge for anyone that is addicted to alcohol or drugs. It is a process that takes patience and willingness. It is the strength inside you that will get you to the point of long term sobriety and believe me it is very hard to do, but very possible.

You can achieve anything in life if your heart and soul is into it and you are determined to achieve whatever it is, including sobriety.

There is going to be many obstacles that want to get in your way of getting clean and sober, but you MUST NOT let them deter you in finding your sobriety. You MUST NOT let the addiction take control of your body and mind again even though you may be tempted to use again you cannot let it happen. You can not relapse because if you do you will be right back to square one and day one of your sobriety and all the hard work you did to get clean and sober will be wasted.

Be stronger than your addiction and beat the battle that your demons are giving you. If I could do it, then so can you. Give sobriety a chance. You will never be sorry you did.

Taking One Day at a Time

You have to work at sobriety. It will not just fall in to your lap without a little effort on your part. You can not let anything discourage you and thinking I give up and go back to using again. You will be so disappointed in yourself for letting that happen.

Yes, it will be hard, but always remember, anything good in life takes effort, perseverance, strength, courage, determination and the willingness to change.

Just take it easy and take it one day at a time and everyday you remain sober it will get easier and easier and before you know it you will have beat your inner demons and sobriety will be the new part of your life.

      We had another illustration of the power of addiction today. Amy Winehouse died at the age of 27-- so sad.

      Thanks for a real life, practical hub about the reality of addiction. One day at a time is the only way to go.

      It is so easy to reach for something outside ourselves when trouble shows up - doesn't help though. Thanks for sharing - voted up and useful.
