How Your Alcohol Addiction Effects Others

Updated on August 13, 2013

Your Addiction Effects Others Too

There are two kinds of alcoholics that I can think of and that is the happy alcoholic with not a worry in the world and then the alcoholic that he/she life is the most miserable ever. They are miserable and in turn make every one around them just as miserable as them or sometimes even worse.

So many alcoholic do not realize how your alcohol addiction effects others. We are so into our addiction to alcohol we don't even see what we are doing to the lives of others. We live in our own little world only thinking of ourselves and wondering when and where the next drink will come from.

i can speak about the alcoholics any way I wish because in reality I once was that alcoholic and I can relate to all that I write. One way, and that is my way, so I used to say. Never leave home without it, was another great saying I used to say to my friends and family. Looking back at all the selfish things I and most alcoholics say and do is nothing to be proud of, that's for sure.

How horrible is that to put alcohol before anything including the ones that love and care for that same alcoholic that is making those people miserable inside.


Does This Look Familar ?


Man, I have learned so much about what life is really about since I became clean and sober. I now look at the alcoholics and say to myself, " Is that how I acted when I drank alcohol?"

I just shake my head in disbelief that I was once like these alcoholics and I can see clearly now what the alcoholic puts their family and friends through, and it's not a pretty site.

I wish so bad that I could talk some sense into these people that are addicted to alcohol, but I know as well as you know, you can talk to you are blue in the face and if the alcoholic is not ready to surrender to their addiction then you are wasting your time. The reason I say this is because people tried to talk to me in a nice way in the beginning and I didn't want to hear it.

As time passed and those same people started to get discussed with my addiction to alcohol they began to speak with a more harsh tone of voice and then it appeared they meant business and were fed up with my actions and my addiction to alcohol.

These words I speak, more than likely apply to many people that are addicted to alcohol or drugs for that matter. I mostly write regarding alcohol for the simple fact, I was never into the drugs or have used them and I thank God for that or my life would have been more messed up than it was just drinking alcohol.

The best thing to do if you want a better life not only for yourself, but your family as well, is to stop drinking alcohol. Get help if you need it and can not do it yourself. There are so many wonderful Rehab. Centers all over the world and are more than willing to help any one that wants to help themselves.

Your family will be so delighted you have decided to quit drinking alcohol and will do anything to be able to support you and help you find your new clean and sober life.

Don't wait until it's too late to surrender, but act on it now, and as you go through the transition of being an alcoholic to being a person that is now clean and sober you will then see people that were totally discussed with your drinking, to those same people coming to you with a smile from ear to ear and congratulating you for what you have done.  Believe me, it does happen and I am proof of it.
