Five Common Reasons You Might be Afraid to Quit Drinking

afraid to quit drinkingBack when I was a drinker I was acutely aware that alcoholism was slowly but surely destroying everything in my life that I cared about. It had already turned me into a fat, lazy, unhealthy zombie but it was also going to work on my marriage and my ability to be a good father.

My addiction to booze was stealing my money, destroying my health and stagnating my career – I was going nowhere fast.

I would wake every morning full of guilt and regret and make promises to myself that I knew I would never keep. It didn’t matter how much I meant it when I said ‘I am never drinking again’. By evening I was reaching for the corkscrew,

Yet, despite this tidal wave of destruction flooding my world, I was still afraid to quit drinking. It doesn’t make any sense of course – how can you be afraid of doing something that can only enhance and improve your life.

Five Common Reasons You Might be Afraid to Quit Drinking

However, it is more common than you think.

Here are 5 common signs that you might be being kept in the loop of alcoholism by fear.

  1. You’re afraid that you won’t be able to stop
  2. You can’t imagine a life without alcohol
  3. You’re afraid that you will miss drinking
  4. You are worried about socializing without alcohol
  5. You have heard it is difficult and maybe even painful to quit

It’s crazy I know… on one hand, you hate being out of control but secretly you love it and wish there was a way to control it.

I know this situation and I know you – I first dealt with my own two-decade-long drink problem before I set about helping thousands of people just like you to retake control of their drinking.

Afraid of The Unknown

Alcohol addiction is a bit like suffering from Stockholm syndrome. You have fallen in love with a serial killer. Sure, the marketing for booze would have you believe that it’s nothing but a little treat. However, the hard reality of alcohol is this, booze kills someone every 10 seconds.

That’s right, this drug that is deemed safe by western governments is killing millions of people every year.
