Recovering from an alcohol or substance use disorder is one of the hardest things people will do in their entire life. Those impacted by the hooks of addiction know first-hand how deep their illness is rooted. Extricating oneself from addiction requires tremendous courage and fortitude from people who have long been without. But, failure to find such virtues in the darkest of hours can prove, ultimately, to be fatal.
There is good news though. Addiction recovery is possible. And every day millions of people in the United States and beyond prove this to be true. But there is a caveat, finding recovery requires one to take certain steps. And be completely honest with their self and others. Which is ironic considering that one’s road to full blown addiction was laid with duplicity. Now, years later and at the doorstep of recovery, you are asked to do away with your programming. An internal system that urges you do whatever it takes to feed the fire of your disease. But, it’s possible and the first action-step of recovery is asking for help.
Fortunately, the closer one gets to their bottom, the easier it becomes to put denial aside and face the facts. You need help.
Seeking Recovery Is An Act of Courage
When people think of quitting something, there are often connotations of defeat. But, if the behavior you are ridding yourself of is literally killing you, is it really defeat? Seeking recovery should be likened more to the word surrender. If you want to live, let go and ask for help. Again, your disease will continue to manipulate your thoughts trying to convince you that everything is OK. Even when you know it is not, consciously.
Regardless of what substance one is dependent upon: Recovery is possible. Regardless of how long or how short a time you have been in the clutches of addiction: Recovery is possible, and necessary. Many young people spurn detox, treatment and working programs of recovery. They often think that they will find another way to liberate themselves from this pernicious disease. Thinking that they have control. A deadly delusion that has accelerated many a soul to premature death. If you are a young addict or alcoholic, it is likely that you will want to try anything to avoid surrendering to recovery. But, please take it from those who have had similar thoughts, if you meet the criteria for addiction, recovery is your only hope.
Asking for help, and seeking the assistance of addiction professionals will save your life. Working a program of recovery will open up doors of opportunity that were not only closed before, you didn’t even know they existed. You will find that addiction recovery is the gift that keeps on giving, and your life will take you places that you can’t comprehend—yet.
