Living Life Without Alcohol

Updated on August 12, 2013

Living life without alcohol can be done by many of people, but not everyone can take this journey living life alcohol free.

Unfortunately there are millions of people around the world that depend on alcohol each and everyday of their lives. Many of these people started out drinking alcohol as a experiment or a stress reliever and over time became depended and addicted to the alcohol which will become part of their everyday lives until they die. If something is not done fast to change their life around the addiction will run their life until the end of time.

This doesn't have to be. If these people that are so addicted could stand up for their own life and surrender to the substance that will in time kill them, they will see just how beautiful life is without having alcohol in it.

As for myself being addicted to alcohol for so many years I have learned a valuable lesson regarding life in general. I always thought when I drank alcohol that life was so much fun and there wasn't anything better than drinking alcohol and getting that buzz we alcoholics long for, but I was dead wrong in my findings.

Since I surrendered to my demons my life has been awesome to say the least. No one has to live with alcohol telling them every step to take, meaning give my body just one more drink.

Life is so precious and none of us need to have alcohol tag along and ruin that precious life we were given by God.


Sober Fun

I used to think you could never have fun without alcohol being part of the fun you were about to have. I know every alcoholic feels the same way as I did, meaning how can we have fun not drinking alcohol. It seems like people that are sober have no fun at all through the eyes of the alcoholic. I used to think that people that didn't drink alcohol were weird and square.

I looked down at them and never knew that those same sober people looked at me the same way I looked at them. The only difference was, I was killing myself, as all alcoholics are, and the sober ones are having the true fun and sober fun at that.

Please remember you don't need alcohol to have fun and you certainly don't want the alcohol demons to control your life.

You just need to know that alcohol will ruin your life if you let it, and once your body takes a liking to alcohol and you are not strong enough to say no, than you are on your way to an addiction that will be hard to get rid of. The best thing to do is not to let alcohol start to control your life in the first place.

Have your social drinks with family and friends, and on that special occasion, have that toast with your drink, but do it responsible and not make it a habit and start to like it too much that you need it all the time.

If you are interested in knowing just how and why I started to drink alcohol and how I finally quit drinking then check out my new eBook titled My Life of Alcohol Addiction.
