Why Me Says The Alcoholic

Updated on August 13, 2013

You Did It to Yourself As I Did

Why me says the alcoholic, are words that have been spoken around the world for hundreds of years. Why me they cry in argue? Why is everything happening so bad in my life? Why is it that everything seems to go wrong in my life? A Million excuses of why the alcoholic has such a horrible life.

Through my experiences of drinking alcohol and turning into an alcoholic are just like yours. I too thought the world was against me in anything I set out to do and the fact of the matter was I was doing it all to myself and it had nothing to do with the world around me.

Once you get this so called theory of the world is against you and nothing goes right in your life the better off you will be. You have to blame yourself and no one else of how your life has turned out because you are an alcoholic. Poor me right? If you feel so down and mislead about your life than do something about changing your life to something you would be proud of and not have the name pinned on you as an alcoholic. Get sober and stay sober and then be proud to say you are in recovery and have been sober for ex amount of years. You won't believe how great you will feel to spread the word that you are clean and sober.

We made this name for ourselves and now we must live it for the rest of our lives. We chose the lifestyle of drinking and abusing alcohol so now we need to do something to make things right in our lives and live life the way it should be lived, and stop blaming the world and everyone around you for your own mistakes.

Any of us can get sober just as easy as we became addicted to alcohol. The big thing is, do you have enough willpower to say goodbye to your addiction or do you want to be an alcoholic for the rest of your life?

The Alcoholic

Stop Feeling Sorry for Yourself

Everyone has to stop feeling sorry for themselves and start to do something about the life you now have as an alcoholic. Life is so precious and anyone that has an addiction to alcohol, and needs to have alcohol everyday of their lives needs to really sit down and take a hard look at where their life is headed.

This is exactly what i did when I finally said, "enough is enough." This is what you need to do if you what to have a happy, healthy and sober life for the years you have left here on Earth. You are the only one that can change the world you live in and you are the only one that can make yourself stop drinking alcohol

If you would like to know how my life started as being an alcoholic and how I finally gave in to my addiction then check out my new eBook titled My Life of Alcohol Addiction.

See, sometimes it takes years to finally realize that you are doing wrong in your life and something has to change before it is too late. Anyone can change if you truly want a better life for yourself and if not, then I guess you will be an alcoholic and live a miserable life until the day you die from alcoholism. Sad to say, but so very true. Stand up to your demons and change your life. You will never regret having sobriety back into your life.

      Good job. It's encouraging to those who still struggle, even though they may have been "dry" for awhile. That self-pity is a real bummer and the sooner let go the better.

      I believe they are called "dry drunks" by some and "dry benders" by others. Whatever they are called they are no fun. All that's missing is the alcohol.

      No one likes to be around a person who feels sorry for himself and blames the world for his trouble.

      Keep the encouragement coming. You just never know when that one shy person who is really hurting will be helped by what you say. You're very courageous. Voted up.

      Good job coaching and giving a pep talk on this subject. People with addictions need to hear this type of encouragement often. It helps them to keep focused and feel supported. A well written hub.

      An open and honest hub Kelly - one caution though is that recovery from alcohol and recovery from abuse may not occur at the same time. The pattern of relapse is also the path of and to recovery. In my work with mothers struggling with addiction motivational interviewing, empathy and healing the root cause is a necessary part of full recovery. Sometimes the alcoholic is also a victim of child or spousal abuse - maybe even from another alcoholic.

      Getting rid of the idea that the world is against you is a profound move toward peace. Thanks for sharing your experiences. I believe everything happens for a reason. Your years of bondage provide hope to others struggling today! Voted up and useful. FYI under stop feeling sorry for yourself you put everyone one. Take care, Kelley

      @ Vincent- Thank you so much for your comment and kind words. I am sad to hear the life you had as a child. I put my wife and children through torture as I drank my life away. Now sober over 2 1/2 years my goal in life is to hopefully help others that have the same problem as I did. I am glad you father got to have some quality time with you and your family being sober. I just wish with all my heart that everyone would realize just what an addiction to do to you and your loved ones.

      God Bless Vincent !

      Wise words my sober friend. I've seen down an out drunks in my life, they blame everyone but themselves. I lived with alcoholics in my own family. As a boy I was surrounded by alcohol in my household, it did nothing but bring hurt, pain and abuse to me and my siblings.

      I write most of my poetry from my soul, that is drawn from this poison out of control alcoholic men/woman who exerted their will upon us children at home. It's a disease for sure, my father fought it all his life. He finally passed from this earth a sober man, but only for the last 15 yrs of his life, but at least he had some sober years and time to make up with the family he so hurt and left a mess. Thank you for sharing and all the best with your Ebook.
