Quit Drinking Alcohol - Regain Your Life Back
How much do you treasure your life? Do you think you deserve to live a long and healthy life? Do you want to fulfill all of your dreams and goals in life?
If you answered all positive thoughts and said yes I do want all of the above then why don't we just Quit Drinking Alcohol and Regain Our Life Back?
Our lives are shorter then we think they are. We think that we will be on this earth forever. Why do we shorten our lives with an addiction that can be avoided only by us. Some of us think we are indestructible.
We the addicted are good at self destruction. We can avoid an early death just by using some common sense. It is perfectly okay to have a drink or two, repeating a drink or (two) not totally abusing it and gone all out to get drink, buzzed or high.
We can have just as much fun being sober without getting carried away with the alcohol or drugs. I know that these addictions simply sneak up on us without us really seeing whats happening. It takes time for us to build up a tolerance to the substance in question.
It sneaks up on us a little at a time until it has you right were it wants you, "ADDICTED".
None of us are out to kill ourselves by no means, "at least I wasn't". I loved to drink, but over time it caught up to me and took hold of my body and mind with out warning. I asked myself as I was pounding them down one day, "what in world has happened to me"? It's taken double the amount of alcohol to get drunk then it did six months ago.
So, then the question is, are we now addicted to alcohol? The answer I came up with was a BIG YES for me. If we depend on alcohol in our everyday routine, and we feel we need it to get through our hectic lives, then I would say yes we have a problem, but it is something fixable if you choose to do so.
We think that alcohol helps us cope with our problems better than being sober. We tend to think we feel great being drunk and forgetting about everything, and we can conquer the world, so we think. The only thing being conquered is our Demons taking over our lives.
They (our demons) will destroy families, friends, love, relationships and take the breath right out of us, literally.
Just why do we let these enemies of ours take over our lives and ruin everything we worked so hard to get in our earlier years?
I'm sorry, but I have such a hate for these demons. They that just about destroyed my life, and others the same. I can't even bare to see alcohol or anything associated with it. I am bitter, I am cold, but, I made it through the tough part of getting clean and sober.
Now it's up to me and me alone to continue what I set out to do, and that's having my Sobriety and starting a fresh and new life, not only for myself, but everyone that put up with me through all the years of abusing alcohol.
HAVE YOU FACED YOUR DEMONS YET?
You see, when we have an alcohol addiction or any addiction for that matter, we are not the only ones suffering. We are so blinded to the outside world because of our addiction, that we don't see the heartaches we are giving to the people around us, that love and care and want to help us.
They are suffering along with us, but they are not getting the high or the buzz we are, they are getting emotionally and physically drained worrying and trying to take the best care of us so that we stay alive.
So, just remember, if you truly want a better life, try your hardest to get sober and forget about the alcohol. If you decide to stop drinking, you will see what a wonderful life you will have and all being sober.
It can be done if you simply surrender to your demons, and believe me, you will never be sorry you did, and that's the truth.
