Abusing alcohol and your body is one thing we the alcoholics never think about. Once we get that first taste of alcohol of the day, the eye opener so they say, we think of nothing but trying to reach that buzz we had only hours before.
It truly is sad for me to think and talk about something like alcohol that was a huge part of my life, and my families life as well for so many years. Being sober now for over 4 years I get sick to even think about what I put my body through all those years abusing alcohol and my body.
Now is the time like no other for each alcohol and anyone who is addicted to alcohol and can't seem to stop drinking. Sobriety is right at your finger tips if and only if you choose to change your life for the better.
I have found out through my own experiences with drinking too much, that drinking and abusing alcohol and your body is so foolish. I often asked myself, "why can't I just have one or two drinks and call it the day just like others I watched through my dark days of addiction?"
They seem to be perfectly satisfied with one or two drinks, and I and other alcoholics just can't get enough alcohol in our bodies. I think for myself that I was just too weak and let the demons inside me run and try their hardest to ruin my life.
I often wonder till this day, why and how did I get clean and sober 4 years ago? Why couldn't I have done that years before?
The answer I came up with was, "I JUST WASN'T READY TO CHANGE MY LIFE!" I guess you just have to hit rock bottom in order to do something drastic to change you life.
A dear friend of mine, and the one that changed my life with his website says in his addiction site, TAKE MASSIVE ACTION!! Taking action to change your life is great but MASSIVE ACTION is what needs to be done in order to have success and sobriety in your life.
Just remember this one thing when you are abusing your body with alcohol. Each and everyone of us have only BUT ONE life here on Earth, so why would we destroy this one and only body with alcohol when we can just stop drinking and start living clean and sober?
I know it was super hard for me to quit drinking alcohol, as it is for all of the alcoholics out there, but I made my mind up and stuck to the promise I made to myself saying, "I will never, after this day (October 27, 2009, my sober date) touch another alcoholic drink for the rest of my life no matter how good or bad life gets!"
Once you make up your mind, and stick to that decision, you are on your way to living the life of sobriety just as I am right now.
I did it and so can you!! Get out of denial, and just take a look around at the lives you are taking down with you all because of your addiction to alcohol. It is so possible if that is what you want out of the one and only life you have. Get out of denial, think positive and be stronger than your addiction, and believe me things will start to get better each and everyday from that point on.
