Ways to Stop Drinking
Most everybody likes to chill out and relax with a cold glass of beer or a nice mixed drink after a hard days work or maybe at a party of some kind, but a lot of us don't know when enough is enough.
One drink may turn into a day or night of partying with out us really realizing it. We are having so much fun with our friends and the time passes very fast. That usually happens when your are having a great time.
Some of us just don't know when to stop drinking and sometimes things may get out of hand. Time is flying and so are we. Enough of the teasing of the cold beer and mixed drinks.
Lets talk about ways to stop drinking alcohol for good and live life clean and sober. There is nothing wrong with having fun with family and friends and having some friendly drinks together, but we need to know where to draw the line of having fun and getting full blown out drunk.
Many of us do not even realize that we may have an alcohol addiction, and if we do, we are in so much denial we just don't want to admit it to ourselves or anyone else for that matter.
If you think you have an addiction, not only to alcohol, but any harmful substance and want to surrender, then you will have to make some drastic life changes first. This maybe one of the problems with the alcoholic, that they are so used to their life style and way of life they can't imagine any other way to live.
We need to get our mind focused on what we really want out of life. Do we want to live life being addicted to something and having that substance run and ruin our life or do we want to live a clean, healthy, and longer life?
It really isn't a hard question to ask ourselves, it just depends on how much you love yourself. What we need to is to get some positivity back into our life and start to think of what dreams and goals we want to accomplish in our life time and go after them.
I believe that so many people that have an addiction of any kind are very depressed and have so real low self esteem about their self. I know I did until I made up my mind to change and start a new live being sober.
Negativity in any one's life could make you start on that self destructed path in life, but guess what, by drinking or using drugs just makes the problem even worse, and the depression and what you think of yourself also gets worse over time.
What helped me to become clean and sober is that I changed my outlook on life and started to think nothing but positive things and believe it or not it helps a lot. Look into your future and really think of what you want out of live.
Look at your family, wife, children and parents and imagine you life with out them. Think of all the great times everyone had together through your life before being addicted.
Have something to l;ook forward to besides your next drink. We are all stronger then we think and our minds are very powerful, so we can change our mindset to be something positive only if you truly want to.
When you have finally surrender to your addiction you will find that your life will start to change. It will take some time, but it took time for us to become addicted too. Give your life a second chance and love yourself, believe in yourself, respect yourself and everything will fall into place and when you get to your anniversary sober date you will be so proud of your accomplishments and so will your family that loves and care so much for you.
BELIEVE AND YOU WILL ACHIEVE!
