Sobriety Changes Lives

Updated on August 13, 2013

Do you or do you know anyone that drinks too much alcohol? Would you consider yourself or them an alcoholic and if so, what should you do to change that status that you brought in to your lives. The name and the status of being an alcoholic. You may want to consider something called sobriety, in which sobriety changes lives, believe it or not.

The alcoholic doesn't like to hear the word sobriety because I truly think they are afraid of being sober. I only say this because when I drank alcohol if was scared to death to let my body totally to become sober. When alcoholics live each day of their lives drinking alcohol they tend to forget exactly what being sober and having sobriety in their life feels like.

Sobriety will never hurt you, it is the addiction to alcohol that will sooner or later kill you silently or possibly cut your life short by a horrific accident that could of been avoided if you were driving sober.

What Drinking and Driving Can Do to Your Life


Don't Drink and Drive

Sorry for the picture to the right, but I need to let anyone that abusing alcohol and getting behind the wheel will do to you and others. One night out partying can lead to something horrible as this. DON'T let this happen to you or anyone you know that drinks alcohol and gets behind the wheel.

If we only knew how to control our drinking and be more responsible while drinking things like this would not happen, but then again you must still keep you eye out on those that are on the road that do not drink responsible and get behind the wheel.

When I mention sobriety changes lives, I mean it, and I am living proof because sobriety changed mine, but drinking and abusing alcohol also changes lives in a negative way as you see in the photos. I hate to be so graphic posting these photos but it has to be seen and hopefully seen by those that do not drink responsibly.

If anyone thinks that it will never happen to you then you need a huge wake up call. I have loss friends by accidents cause by drinking and driving, so don't ever think it will never happen close to your life because it can.

Your Demons What to Ride with You

The demons are riding right along with the alcoholic and telling them ever move to make. It is not your mind thinking it is your alcohol demons thinking for you.

What can you do to get the devil off your shoulder? There is only one thing I can think of and you may or may not like to hear it, but you need to just stop drinking alcohol, period. I am not saying that drinking alcohol is a sin or a crime because most everyone has or does drink, but the alcoholic tends to overdue it to the extreme and abuse the one thing that can and will put the lights out on you one way or another.

Addictions and the demons that run your addiction don't care about anything except to keep destroying your life a little bit at a time until you are so far addicted you don't know what to do or where to go. Your addiction now runs your life. You are not in control of your own life which is a crying shame. The alcoholic needs to live in sobriety for a week and they will then see how sobriety can change lives.

If I were to know how great life was being sober each and everyday I would of thought about getting sober years ago. The big thing with being addicted to alcohol is that you forget what life was like before you began to drink and abuse alcohol. At least that is how I felt.

Stand up to your demons and change your life and live it clean and sober and once you feel that sense of sobriety coming back into your life you will not look back at your past addiction to alcohol. At least I hope you wouldn't.

So, you will be very surprised how sobriety changes lives, one being your own and the other being your family and friends that love and care about you. You may not know it or realize that by you getting sober gives a new life to your family and friends also. Just thought I would remind you of that.

      Any change is difficult esp being sober. But, if one attains sobriety...he/she can attain the love of their family and trust again...priceless!

      Thanks for such a wonderful and motivating hub.
