Drug Addiction

Drug addiction steals your dreams and makes you a prisoner to your cravings. Until you are able to break away from the substance abuse, you have no possibility of reaching your potential in life. The likelihood is that things are going to steadily deteriorate for you, and if you are unable to stop, you will die because of the addiction. It does not have to be this way, though. There is a way for you to escape this predictable downward spiral but you just have to be willing to break away from addiction.

Do You Need to Hit Rock Bottom with Your Drug Addiction?

It is often said that the best way to break away from drug addiction is to hit rock bottom. This means that you have fallen so low because of the behaviour that you become willing to do whatever it takes - hitting rock bottom really gives you some powerful motivation to quit. The only problem is that most people misunderstand what is meant by 'hitting rock bottom', believing it is something that is going to happen in the future, after they've lost everything.

Hitting rock bottom is not about how much you've lost or how much you have suffered. It is not any type of special day. Rock bottom is the exact moment when you decide that enough is enough. It is something that can happen at any time. All it requires is for you to decide you have had enough and to really mean it. Have you not already lost enough of your life to addiction? If the answer to this is 'yes' then this means that you have already hit your rock bottom.

The Fear of Escaping Drug Addiction

One of the real tragedies in life is that there is comfort in the familiar. This means that even though drugs may be making your life hell, you can decide to just put up with this suffering. This happens because you fear the pain of change is going to be worse than the pain of staying the same. The problem is that you are completely wrong if you think this way; this is part of the denial that keeps you trapped. The hardest part of breaking away from drug addiction is making the decision to do this, but once you do do this, it all gets much easier. It is staying the same that is the hardest thing to do.

In order to get over your fear of breaking away from addiction, you need to be willing to take a leap of faith. You only have to do this at the very start; you are soon going to be receiving plenty of evidence that you made the right decision. Right now, you have to believe that ending the addiction is going to improve your life; this should be easy for you to believe because you already know the opposite is true.

Are You Ready to Break Away from Drug Addiction?

You need to think carefully about what you want from life. If you continue to waste your life on drugs, there is not going to be much to look forward to in your future. You might live for a few more years, and you might have times when you do not feel so bad, but this path is going to end badly for you. The alternative is to make the decision to try something new. You can move your life in a completely different direction. By getting sober, you have the chance to begin living up to your potential; does that not sound exciting?  This could be your second chance in life, but it is up to you to take it.
