If you are, or know someone that is an alcoholic, answer me this. "Why do alcoholics live in denial? Can you answer that question?
I bet I can answer this question because I was one of those people that had an addiction to alcohol and lived in denial every single day of my drinking days. Those days are long gone now, Thank God.
No matter what anyone told me, I thought that what they said was completely crazy and out of order. I would think and say to them, "you are out of your mind and don't know what you are talking about." I can handle my alcohol just fine, and as far as drinking everyday, who cares, I am not hurting anyone!"
Man was I wrong with that statement. I never knew I was so addicted to alcohol and certainly didn't realize I was hurting so many people that loved and cared for me. The alcohol ran my life and told me what to do and say. I was completely blinded to the outside world and never thought I was hurting anyone, but myself and my health.
Alcohol made me feel as if I would never get sick from it, and thank God that never happened, but if I were to continue drinking and going down that destructive path of life, sooner or later it would of got me, as it will get every alcoholic one way or another in the end. Whether it be sickness, or a horrible accident caused by over drinking and abusing alcohol and for the worst part, drinking and driving accidents. With drinking and driving as we all know, we are not only putting your life in danger, but you would be putting innocent lives in danger as well.
The alcoholic just can't accept the fact that they have a real alcohol problem. They think that their life is just fine and they are not bothering anyone. Well, I have to say, your life is not fine and you are bothering many of people by your addiction to alcohol. You can't see it because you are living in denial and blinded by your own addiction. I can say this, because what I am stating here was me three years ago until I finally saw the light and stopped drinking alcohol.\
The alcoholic thinks they are living a normal life, because many of their friends are also alcoholics and share the same interest which is drinking alcohol. The drink and carry on, having a great old time and when the booze starts to flow they are all the smartest in the subject they are talking about. Does any of this sound familiar to you at all?
What I did, and what you should think about seriously is to look at your life as you are living it at that moment and think to yourself where you will be in a year or two from that moment. Look around you carefully and take notice of the people that are in your life and that love and care for you, such as your spouse and children.
Think real hard if it is worth having an addiction to alcohol and abusing alcohol everyday or be apart of the family that care for you so much. The choice really isn't that hard to figure out. It took me years to be able to look past my addiction to alcohol and see the world around me as I was sober. You can't look at things in the right way having alcohol in your system. Take a break for a day and really look into your life and what is all around your. The vision will be clear and it just might give you a wake up call to turn your life around and start enjoying life being sober. Sobriety is a wonderful thing if you just give it a chance!
One other important thing to mention once you get out of denial and what to live a life of sobriety is, "YOU NEED TO THINK AND ACT WITH A POSITIVE ATTITUDE!
By having a positive attitude in your quest to living a clean and sober life, you will see the denial start to just go away just as it did for me over three years ago. Once I admitted I had problem with alcohol, and it was out of control, I got out of the denial I lived in for so long and I wanted my life back the way it was before alcohol took over.
