Wasting Your Life Away With An Addiction To Alcohol
Life Is so Precious
All of our lives are so precious, so why is that all of you that are addicted to alcohol are wasting your life away with an addiction to alcohol? This addiction to alcohol is something that we brought on ourselves and each and everyday we are wasted, drunk and staggering around town we are wasting our precious life away.
Is it that the addiction has over powered us without us knowing or seeing it coming? Is it that we (including myself) don't have the willpower or the strength inside us to say no to our addiction to alcohol?
Do we not have the courage to walk away from our addiction because we are worried we wouldn't be able to survive without our crutch and what we depend on in our everyday life?
If you are addicted to alcohol you must be stronger than your addiction, or else the addiction to alcohol and the demons that accompany your addiction will take your life under their belt and begin, slow but sure, to ruin your life and possibly put you into an early grave, only if you let your addiction or your liking of the drink to get out of hand.
As a young adult I always found it hard to believe that anyone that drank alcohol could get addicted to it, until it happened to me. Believe me, it is very easy to get addicted to alcohol if you are not wiser than your demons. I was living proof that anyone in this world can wind up in the hands of an addiction.
If you are not strong and wise enough to see what is happening in your life while drinking alcohol, and lots of it, then you are about to find out and unfortunately for some, the hard way.
This addiction can and will ruin your life if you let it and I can tell you from my experiences with drinking alcohol that it will do just that.
Alcohol Addiction and Ways to Quit
Fighting Your Demons
Now almost two (2) years sober I have finally realize that my demons did for some years taken over my life and all those who loved and cared for me lives as well. I have now seen the light and have put my arms in the air and just surrendered to my addiction. It's that simple whether you think so or not, but if you have it in your heart and soul that you want to be sober, then it will happen. It will take some real determination and willingness, but it is totally possible. You have to give to get right? If you want to be clean and sober then the one and only thing you have to do is to surrender and quit drinking alcohol.
If by chance your inner demons have taken control of your life, do not be afraid to fight back to regain your sobriety. Yes, it will be hard for you to surrender, as it was for me, but in the end when you have defeated your demons a get clean and sober your will look back at your life and wonder how your addiction ever occurred, as I did.
This addiction to alcohol sneaks up on all of us very slowly and before you know it gets you right where they want you, and that is addicted big time. You will shake your head in amazement and ask yourself, "how did I get into this addiction that came out of the blue?" It never came out of the blue, it was always there, it's just that you hadn't recognized it until it was too late, just like myself. So, now you have recognized you are addicted to alcohol and now you have to do something about it to change your life and regain your sobriety.
Don't be embarrassed of your addiction. Ask for the help it you think you need it to get sober. I was one of the fortunate alcoholics that didn't need 12 step, AA, or go to any meetings to get sober. I quit drinking on my own with the helping hand of God, that gave me the strength and the willpower to quit drinking alcohol. I have nothing against the 12 step, AA or any type of meetings because they do help millions of people over come their addictions. It's just that I was able to quit on my own and I am so grateful that I could do it on my own and without getting sick or having any medical issues, thank God.
Never give up hope on yourself, because sobriety is out there waiting for you to take advantage of it. Believe in your self and keep telling yourself that you can and will become sober once again and start enjoying the life you so well deserve.
Always remember that you are not the only one suffering with an addiction. The family and the people that love and care about you are also suffering right along with you and crying inside that you will get and stay sober.
