Living The Clean Life Alcohol Free
We all have choices in our life that we can make all on our own, but sometimes some of us just make the wrong ones.
We head out into this world of ours on a mission to succeed in life, but some find it hard to find just what we are looking for in our life. We tend to get confused in what we want and what we can have. Wanting and having are two different things, but both can be accomplished if you set your mind to it.
I know, we are not born into this world with our minds set out to be an alcoholic, but for some reason many of us become just that. Living the clean life alcohol free is a little hard to take for an alcoholic. We tend to think, "how can I live life with out my alcohol or should I say my crutch?"
This is where we the alcoholic get stuck in our life, because we are afraid to make a change. We are terrified that with out our alcohol we can not function normal. That is just how I felt when I was drinking everyday for years.
If I were to leave the alcohol alone and just walk away it would feel to me I left an arm or leg behind. I would be missing something that was a huge part of my life.
I walked alone down a lonely road and over that bridge that I thought I would never return on, but deep down inside me I knew that I would sooner or later have to surrender to my addiction and cross back over that bridge to the world of Sobriety.
It took years looking from that other side of the river and just wishing I could go back to the other side and find piece and serenity in my life. Something powerful held me back from crossing back over that bridge, and that was my demons.
This addiction was stronger than I and I knew it. I'm a strong willed person as I'm sure so many alcoholics are too. It's just that we are afraid that we will not be able to survive with out our crutch. In the meantime our lives are passing us by.
Finally, I got so angry with my demons that I made my mind up that I have had enough of this horrible life I live. it's now time to surrender and get my family and my life back.
I stared from the one side of that bridge with Positivity burning in my mind, and took that FIRST STEP TO to cross back over. One small step at a time, and I made it my friends, just as all of you that have any kind of addiction can do also.
I was so embarrassed and felt guilty of my addiction and I would try to hide it from people, but you know what, they all had my number. There was no fooling anyone. The only person the alcoholic is fooling, is them self.
It took a lot of willpower and courage to cross back over that bridge and start a new life, but it was SO worth it. I could do it and so can you!
All of us have the power to defeat the demons inside of us and the only trick is that YOU MUST want to quit drinking alcohol and using.
Prepare your mind for this journey and stay focused on what you are setting out to do, and that is getting clean and sober.
Keep a Positive Attitude.
Believe and you will Achieve!
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF THE SAYING, "DON'T BURN YOUR BRIDGES BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN YOU WILL HAVE TO CROSS BACK OVER THEM".
