What Is Stopping You From Admitting You Are An Alcoholic

Updated on May 11, 2011

Why Can't You Just Admit It ?

The big question here is what is stopping you from admitting you are an alcoholic?

  • Are you embarrassed of the way you live your life?
  • Are you ashamed of your addiction to alcohol?
  • Are you too weak to beat the demons inside?
  • Are you afraid to live life clean and sober?
  • Do you forget what sobriety feels like from your past?
  • Do you think you can not survive without your crutch?
  • Are you afraid to ask for help with your addiction to alcohol?
  • Why are you hiding behind the bottle?

Stand up to your alcohol demons and destroy them in their tracks! Be stronger than your addiction and stop drinking alcohol and start living the clean life.

If there is a will there is a way and the will is to be willing to admit you have an addiction to alcohol and you are willing to surrender to that addiction and the way is to JUST DO IT!

Never give up hope and worry that you are so far gone, as far as your addiction to alcohol that there is no way out of it. It is not true. Believe me if you want something bad enough and are willing to give it your all to achieve it , then and only then will it happen, but not until you are willing enough to take massive actions and changes in your life and stick to those changes and never back down or give up until you are on the road to recovery.

If you truly believe you want to change your life and want to change your life not only for yourself but all of those that are in your life, such as your families you can do it. Believe in yourself and tell yourself that you can beat this addiction you are suffering with.

Continue to always think nothing but positive thoughts and tell yourself over and over that you can win this battle with your alcohol addiction.

I must tell all those that are reading this that when I finally decided to surrender to my addiction to alcohol I was afraid I would not be able to get along in life without my crutch (alcohol). I was so used to having this poison in me each and everyday that i was frightened to death to go one day without. That is how much I depended on my alcohol to get me through each day of my life.

I saw where my life was headed and I had made my mind up saying if I don't quit drinking alcohol I will lose everything in my life such as my family and friends and then possibly my life would be next.

I truly think that ever alcoholic can see exactly what they are doing to themselves and their families , but the are confused on how to go about getting sober or should I say they are afraid to get sober. They fear sobriety as I did, because they haven't been sober for some time and forget what it really feels like.

Once you feel that sense of sobriety and get a taste of being clean and sober you will tell yourself, " why didn't I surrender years ago?" This is exactly what I said going on almost 2 years ago, but I can not dwell on the past. It is my turn to run my own life and not the alcohol demons, as they did for many years.

I can really see now how difficult it is for any one that has an addiction of any sort to try and get sober, but the truth of the matter is that is very possible and all you have to do is What Sobriety and then go after it until you have achieved it.

Never give up hope and never give up on yourself. Life is too precious to waste it with an addiction, so sober up and get sobriety back under your belt.

      Great hub presenting a kind of tabu topic. Thank's for sharing. Those suffering are really living a terrible life. By writing about the problem you can help people realizing they are not alone, and that it's possible for everyone to get out of the addiction and the hell they are living in.
