If you or anyone you know struggles with drinking too much and that drinking carries negative consequences, it is time to seek help before it gets worse. A simple phone call can change your perspective on your drinking habits and provide you with the insight to analyze your behaviors correctly. Ask yourself: are you an alcoholic and a problem drinker? Prepare yourself for a journey of courage and perseverance that ends in a successful recovery from alcoholism instead of a progressive death.
Alcoholism: The Progressive Nature of a Disease
The definition of a real alcoholic simply means that you cannot stop drinking regardless of any consequences, even if you desperately want to put the drink down. The drugs and alcohol linger in your body—never feeling completely well unless you are physically removed from the drink. Being an adult in my mid 20’s, was extremely mind blogging to me that I had no self-control when it comes to drinking alcohol, it didn’t matter how much I did not want to pick up the next drink. Alcoholism and depression run deep in my family roots and I now believe that I’ve had a disease of the mind, body, and spirit since my earliest age. Ever since I have been a young boy, I have never felt truly happy or content. Although I was an athletic and popular person my academics, a piece of my soul always felt like it was eternally missing. Now I know that countless alcoholics in twelve-step groups have had very similar experiences, and have found a way out of the depths of their own demise. The shame and guilt that haunt me from the wreckage of my past are heavy, but there are brighter days ahead where I will continue to make full amends for the harm and pain I unconsciously inflicted on my dearest loves ones in my alcoholic rages and stupors. After hitting rock bottom, I am terrified to ever go back to feeling that physically and emotionally sick again.
There Is A Solution To Alcoholism
Not all hope is lost if you are in the midst of an active battle with alcoholism. While in active alcohol addiction, you do not recognize the damage that you are doing psychologically and mentally to yourself and everyone around you. The obsession and compulsion to abuse take over your mind and all other aspects of your life go out the window. Your relationship with our loved ones is completely severed and all trust is nearly hopelessly lost. The guilt and shame become so overwhelming that we no longer have any self-respect left. Your mind and body deteriorate in a progressive cycle and become weak without any recollection of it happening. The alcohol withdrawal is very intense and medical supervision is necessary to properly detox in a safe environment.
