When every sober moment you hate living
How many times have you pondered about whether or not you really are an alcoholic? If your answers to this question are different from the last time you thought about it, then you are not alone. Many people are facing questions like this and as a matter of fact, in all these years of alcoholism counseling, I have heard similar experiences from others. As I was saying before, many people say they won’t do anything in order to stop drinking but the truth is that drinking is something they can’t seem to give up. These people aren’t strong and don’t seem to be able to see things clearly. They say that drinking is like food for them, as long as they have a drink in their hand, they won’t think clearly. Maybe it works that way for them. But it doesn’t work that way for everyone. Alcoholism counselors believe that people with severe alcohol addiction problems are those who believe they can’t stop. That’s not true. If it works like that for them, that’s not the right thing to do. If you are truly addicted to alcohol, then it’s just like any other addictive behavior, you have to conquer it and you have to learn how to break the addiction. Every sober moment you hate living means that you are looking for any excuse not to do what you should do. And if you’re just like them, it’s probably because you’ve got an “either-or” mentality. In other words, you have an “I will quit drinking this time or the next time” attitude. This can take you down a lot of the road before you find your success. For some people, the problem is always right there. Most people do come out of sobriety, but that doesn’t mean that they will stay sober forever. If you’re going to get back into the habit, you have to go through that stage first. For example, you could lose your temper if you see your friends drinking, so you need to understand that you are doing this “before” you can do “after”. So, there is no point in wondering whether or not you should stop at every sober moment you hate living. If you do that, you won’t succeed and you’ll just keep on thinking about what will happen if you don’t quit. That’s never a good way to live. You can also be successful by recognizing the present circumstances and using this to your advantage. For example, some people drink to cope with their problems such as abandonment issues, mental health issues, or other social and physical problems that they have. You could use your sobriety to help you deal with these issues and find new ways to solve them. For example, one day you could drink to cope with anxiety and your other day to boost your confidence and self-esteem. Staying sober means that you have to understand and accept the present situation and use sobriety as a tool. This way, you won’t be a victim of drinking and thus, you won’t be thinking in terms of the future which can never lead to a better life.
