Sobriety Is My Destiny In Life

Updated on April 4, 2011

After someone has abused their life for so long with drugs or alcohol they tend to think that it is just a daily routine of everyday living.

They can't see the real picture of what is happening to them and effecting the people around them including their family and friends. These people that love and care so much for the person that is addicted are the ones that also suffer from the addiction that surrounds them.

The addict or the alcoholic can't see this happening even though it's starring them right in the face. They are basically blinded to the outside world. They are living in their own world of addicted life.

They long for sobriety and to become clean and sober, but really don't know just how to go about achieving it. They keep quiet about their addiction to many people and just hide behind the bottle. Some are very embarrassed of their addiction and this is one of the reasons that they are silent.

Addiction of any sort can be silent also, silent but deadly. This disease is something that just doesn't appear overnight. It's take time of abusing the drug of choice till addiction sets in, and then it is very hard to get out from under this disease called "Addiction".

When I finally surrendered to my alcohol addiction I came up with a question to ask myself which was, "what do I really want in life"? My answer was that I want Sobriety To Be My Destiny in Life.

That was the first and last question I asked, and that was the beginning of my journey to the world of sobriety. It is amazing how one simple question can truly change one's life, "it did for me". I ask myself the question, came up with the answer and went after full steam ahead.

Granted to leave a life of addiction and to try to enter a whole new different world called "sobriety" is not an easy task. If you truly want to become clean and sober and have sobriety as your best friend instead of the demons that used to rule your world, you can with the right mindset in order.

Tell yourself that can and will achieve sobriety, possibly the hardest thing that you may have to do in your life" then with that almighty and powerful POSITIVE ATTITUDE you will win. You can do it.

When you have reach the highest of highs called sobriety you can look back on your journey and be proud of what you have just done to change your life and the lives of so many others.

Then once you are all settled down in your new world go out and try to help others achieve the most challenging thing of their life, and tell then how you did it. Let everyone know what works and what helped you.

Of course many people will need the professional help of councilors and possibly enter a Rehabilitation Center to get that extra help and guidance. There are so many Centers out there that will help, and don't forget the most important, "ask God" for his guidance and give you the strength to be able to overcome your addiction and then you will find the true meaning of life.

      Congratulations on your recent found sobriety. Surround yourself with people who will help encourage your continued sobriety, so that you never fall back in the trap and comfort of alcohol. I am so proud of you. I may not know you, but I know how hard to kick an addiction like that is, and that is a HUGE accomplishment. I am so very proud of you! Great job!
