You Can Never Fall Off A Floor

Updated on August 12, 2013

Rock Bottom

Drinking alcohol and abusing it will sooner or later catch up with each and everyone of us one way or another. When we are so addicted to alcohol sooner or later will hit the floor or I should say hit rock bottom. There is no where we can go more down, besides being buried under ground from our addiction to alcohol.

Sad to say, but oh so true. This horrible addiction to alcohol will put us down to the floor. You can never fall off a floor, but you can most certainly stand back up on that floor if and only if you are willing to surrender to that addiction you have.

Abusing alcohol sooner or later will stop you right in your tracks. It may take many years to catch up with you, but it will happen, whether it be from poor health from your addiction or a horrific car accident that will take your life and possibly others because you were not able to control your addiction and your abuse with alcohol.

Many of us may have an underlying problem that causes us to drink alcohol and abuse it. For myself, I now believe that I too had an underlying problem, something that was bothering me deep down inside and I used alcohol to ease the pain and hope that the problem would go away.

Drinking alcohol and abusing it will never solve any problems or make them go away. You, as I, do have to face the problem head on and correct it being sober in order for you to sit your crutch down that you are carrying around with you for support, which is your addiction to alcohol.

It is very possible believe me. I never thought in a million years that I would ever live a clean and sober life again, but with the willingness and the desire for sobriety I made it through and was able to get off the floor and start a new life with my wife and family. Please never give up on yourself!

Always remember, anything is possible in life. All you have to do is want it and it will happen. Also remember, it will not be easy, but you can not give up of yourself. You must stand strong to your addiction to alcohol and not let the demons run and ruin your one and only life.


All Good Things In Life Takes Work

All good things in life takes work and determination to achieve them and if you have those two things and the support from you family and friends you will make a new life for yourself.

Many of course, will need professional help and may need to enter a Rehab. Center to have the proper care and detox in a safe save. The professionals, counselors and programs are out there for your taking. All you have to do is to surrender and say enough is enough and with the proper care you will get better.

After you are ready to leave the safe zone of Rehab. some of you may need to enter a sober living facility to make sure, if you have any doubt of relapsing that you will continue to stay clean and sober.

There is nothing to be a shamed of being addicted to alcohol. People want you to have a good and clean life and many will do anything to help the alcoholic find their sobriety again. I had total support from my family and friends while I was and still am in recovery.

Don't be a shamed and never be embarrassed of your addiction and hide behind the bottle. Get the help you need if you can not do it yourself.

I have reached a point that I can go into any bar, restaurant or any place that serves alcohol and feel totally comfortable with no urge or desire to touch the drink, in which I am very proud of myself. i have gotten over the hump of my addiction, but granted I know myself and I know if I were to have one glass of beer or any alcohol I would be done and fall right back on the floor. I know this will happen so I just don't have that one sip or glass of beer and I will be perfectly fine among the others that are drinking.

I will not hide from alcohol. I now respect it and I know what it will do to me, so I just stay clean and not drink at all.
