Recovery From Alcoholism Does Not Have To Be Difficult

sober lifestyle

There is a well-propagated myth that recovery from alcoholism is difficult and even downright dangerous.

When you are planning your sober recovery from this drug you need to be on your guard for the lies that your addiction will tell you.

All these negative beliefs come from f.e.a.r. (False Evidence Appearing Real).

For example, many people come to the conclusion that they have an addictive personality and therefore their drinking is not their fault.

They may curse their parents or the medical community, anyone but themselves or their drug. Once you start pointing the finger of blame at an external source you fall into the trap of the drug.

Blame never serves you… NEVER!

recovery from alcoholismNobody is to blame for your addiction to alcohol, including yourself. However, you are entirely responsible for dealing with it. Nobody is going to come in and fix this issue for you.

Sure, you can get advice and information to make your journey out of the loop easier. But at the end of the day it is only you who can implement and commit to a sober recovery plan.

In reality, there is no such thing as an ‘addictive personality’. If drinkers all shared such a kink in character then all drinkers would look, act and behave in a similar way.

However, attend any rehab clinic and look around at the clients. You will find a completely diverse mix of individuals.

Alcohol hooks all races, genders and social classes. It doesn’t care where you live, how many children you have or how powerful you are.

Kings and paupers alike are fair game for this drug.

If it really were possible to have an addictive personality then these poor individuals would be addicted to everything.

All alcoholics afflicted with this condition would also weigh 400lbs from all the candy they were addicted to. They would be smoking 40 cigarettes a day while sniffing glue constantly.

The moment you come up with a reason to explain your drinking you have a license to fail.

Accept no explanation, no reason, and no justification. Take responsibility for killing the Evil Clown yourself alone.

You have a choice, my friend

With this hard reality you have a choice.

You can spend the rest of your life being miserable forcing yourself to avoid the thing you want the most (AA style). Or you can re-frame alcohol so it becomes as repugnant to you as a leather jacket is to a committed vegan.

The myth that quitting drinking is difficult is spread by the PR machine of the drinks industry. The reason they invest millions of dollars to keep this lie alive is simple. What do problem drinkers do when they are stressed out? That’s right they reach for the bottle!

It serves the drinks industry to have people worried about their alcohol consumption feeling stressed and anxious about stopping drinking.

Recovery From Alcoholism Is Easy
