Is There A Secret To Living A Life Of Sobriety
Many people that are addicted to alcohol and want to get out may ask,"is there a secret to living a life of sobriety?" My answer to those that ask this question is, Yes, there is a secret to sobriety and that secret is, "Just Don't Drink!"
Sounds easy right? It is as easy as you make it I can tell you that. From my experience with drinking alcohol I can honestly tell you that I thought of this secret about sobriety and turned my head the other way.
I didn't want to hear about getting sober and living in this dull world being clean and sober. After all, what kind of fun can we have being sober? Life is boring if we are not drunk right? Life is all that we make it, and to be drunk through most of your life is not a pleasant thing.
Once those demons start to take over your life, and others I might add, you are doomed if you don't do something to change it. The more we drink, the more we want and the more want will lead you right down that road to rock bottom. You had better be careful, for these demons don't care who you are or what you are. They don't discriminate color, race, nationality, male, female, teenagers or adults. The demons that lurk inside every alcoholic are out to seek and destroy and they will do just that if you allow them to do so.
How Can We Live a Sober Life?
Living a sober life for someone that has been addicted to alcohol for sometime is not going to be a easy thing to accomplish, but is very very possible to achieve. Do you have what it takes to say goodbye to your addiction? Do you have enough willingness and desire to get and stay sober?
Living a life of sobriety seems like the untouchable for many of those that are addicted to alcohol and just don't know where to turn to achieve this thing that they think is so impossible.
If you have the willingness, determination and the strong desire to get sober, than you can make it happen.
Here are a few big questions you should ask yourself if you are hesitating on get sober and they are as follows:
- How much do you love life?
- How much do you love yourself?
- How much do you love your spouse?
- How much do you love your children?
- Do you love the above enough to change your habits and your life?
- Will my addiction to alcohol kill me in the end?
- Am I happy living the life I now live?
- Can I make things better between me and my family by stopping drinking?
- Will my health improve if I stop drinking alcohol?
All of these things you should ask yourself if you want to have sobriety back into your life. These questions may shed a little light on your decision to get and stay sober. Always remember that each and everyone of us are here on Earth just one time so why in the world would anyone want to live here being drunk and addicted?
There is so much to life living it sober. Never be afraid of sobriety, but you should be very afraid of your addiction to alcohol. You may feel fine at the present moment and suddenly something goes wrong inside your body due to drinking alcohol and abusing it. Don't worry though, your body will give you signs that something is not right, BUT will it be too late to fix it?
Don't wait until something horribly goes wrong or getting yourself so deep into your addiction that you hit rock bottom. You can do something about all of that right now before something does happen and that is STOP DRINKING AND ABUSING ALCOHOL!
None of us are stupid people. We all have brains and our brains are here to be used and not abused. Think of the above real hard and make that choice to change your life and live the life of sobriety. There is nothing to lose, only gain if you choose to do so.
