Quit Drinking Alcohol

Updated on March 14, 2012

I always wondered how many alcoholics in the world would love to quit drinking alcohol? I also wonder out of all the alcoholics in the world are the alcoholics determined to quit drinking or are they happy with the way they live their lives having an addiction?

When a person get so far into an addiction they may think to them self that it may be too late to even think about changing their lives. It is never too late to change anything in your life if you truly want to change, and that includes finding your sobriety once more.

For myself, I have had the devil on my should for many years and I thought the same way, "it's too late to change." I have already done the damage to my body so why even bother to try and quit drinking. There is where the big problem lies in every alcoholic I think.

The truly believe that no one in the world wants to be so addicted to something so much that they just give up on them self. That is not the way any of us alcoholics should think at all. There is a beautiful life out there for all of us to enjoy and none of us should be so addicted that we are missing out of the precious life we were giving by God.


Stop for a moment and think what you are doing to yourself and others that love and care about you. Anyone can quit drinking alcohol. I did it and you can too. It is all how you have your mind set and what exactly you want in life. It is how bad you wish to achieve any dreams and goals in your life.

You can achieve sobriety if you really what to. I know it may seem like the impossible to many alcoholics, but believe me it is not impossible at all. One of the main things you should focus on is getting out of that negative mood you are in and stop feeling sorry for yourself and telling yourself it is too late to do anything to change your life to the positive.

You will never know how sobriety feels if you don't give it a try, and a fare chance to have it back into your life. It will be extremely hard at first to give up something that has been a huge part of your life and something that you may love, but you have to let it go once and for all in order to get sober.

I thought I would have a huge problem surrendering to my addiction, but when I look back over two years ago it really wasn't as bad as I thought and if you decide to get sobriety a try, it may be not as bad as you think.. Once you have determined that you want to quit drinking alcohol and have been sober for sometime, you will ask yourself, :why didn't I get sober years ago?"

That is what I asked myself and still do to this day, but that is water under the bridge now and I am just making everyday count one day at a time. Quit drinking and save your own life as well as possibly saving you marriage, family and friends.

Whether or not you want to believe it, but an addiction to alcohol can and will ruin everything I had mentioned above, and some, if and only if you allow it happen to your life.

      Great article and yes, it's never too late to change your life whether it is stopping drinking, smoking, drugs or compulsive overeating. THe only time it is too late is when we are gone and buried. If you're breathing and living you can make a change.
