How Your Demons Can Drag You Away

Updated on August 12, 2013

Do you know how your demons can drag you away? Just keep doing what you are doing by drinking and abusing alcohol and you will see just how these demons of alcohol will run and ruin your life and in the end possibly put you to an early grave.

Our inner demons have no regards for human life and will kill in a heartbeat, whether it be an overdose, alcohol poisoning or a horrible car crash caused by drinking and driving.

Fighting Back at the Demons

You can not just sit back and take what your demons are doing to you. You need to fight back to save your family and your own life, and I have to tell you, they will win in the end if you allow it to happen. You have to strong and learn the word NO and to tell your inner demons you have had enough of them running your life and it is time to say goodbye once and for all.

Now, this is the part that will be the hardest for anyone that has an addiction to alcohol and depends on alcohol to be a huge part of their lives each and everyday.

You MUST learn to live your life without alcohol in it. I know it is hard because I have gone through the same thing and I was so afraid to say goodbye to my demons, but I had the strength and the willpower to leave them behind once and for all. This is what has to be done to get out of the addiction you are in right now. You have to be positive, act positive and keep a positive attitude at all times if you want to get and stay sober. You need to tell yourself time and time again, day after day, month after month and year after year that you will win over these demons that have tried to ruin your life and give you a slow death that they will NEVER be part of your life again!


Yes, it was very hard, but I looked at what my life has become and how I was putting alcohol before my own family and friends. I knew I was doing wrong and I knew that something had to be done very fast before it was too late. I say, "too late" meaning your health may fail, or your marriage may end because of your addiction to alcohol, BUT it is NEVER too late to change your life around and start living a life of sobriety as I did.

Never Think It Is Too Late

Never think you are doomed because of your addiction to alcohol. If you want to change your life around then you are the only one that can make that happen and no one else. YOUR life is in your own hands and you can not let the alcohol demons have the upper hand, and I mean NEVER, because in the end they will win and take over your life if you are not strong enough to say the almighty word "NO MORE!!"

You may laugh and think I am crazy, but believe me it will happen as the demons slowly sneak up on you and before you know it they will be in full control of your life, your families life and your friends lives. The demons now have taken control of you own body and will be in control and not you unless you do something to change it.

Be Strong, Be Determined, Have that Desire to be Sober, Stay Positive, AND BELIEVE and when doing these things you will see just how strong you are and that you have WON THE BATTLE OF YOUR INNER DEMONS.

      Great hub! It takes courage for people to accept who they are and what they are doing to themselves and loved ones around them. You do have to want to change the behavior or habit of drinking. Change is good and positive in this regard. It can be a hurdle, but hurdles are meant tot be jumped over and headed away from. The same hurdle doesn't need to be in your path again after you have jumped it. I hope others who are battling with alcohol read this hub and receive encouragement and guidance from it.

      @ Lisa - Thank you for reading and your comment and I am glad I have met you. I never did any 12 step, AA meeting etc. I just decided I had enough and by looking at myself in the mirror I saw a change and said I have had enough and just went Cold Turkey and never looked back. I live a positive life now and no more negativity... ever since I quit drinking everything has worked out in my life. All of my dreams have come true including my home by the Sea. All of this would of never happened if I were still drinking. I wrote a hub called a Life Changing Whisper. Read that and you will why and how I quit drinking

      Clean, Good for you. I didn't hear you mention a higher power or 12 steps. I don't know how you stay sober without those but if you do that is wonderful. I know I couldn't. Anyway we stay alcohol free and happy joyous and free is a blessing. Thanks for the hub. I voted up. There are so many out there that need to know there are many paths to sobriety. Alcohol is a deadly and brutal killer that claims tens of thousands of lives every year, not counting all the families it destroys.

      Take care,
