How to Break Away From Addiction

It would be misleading to say that breaking away from addiction is going to be easy, but it is unlikely to be anywhere near as hard as the person caught in this behaviour expects it to be. The more motivated the person becomes to end the substance abuse, the easier it will be for them. There are also other things that will make breaking away from addiction achievable such as:

  • · The individual needs to become willing to do whatever it takes to break away from addiction. This means considering all the recovery resources that are available to them and making use of the ones that are likely to work. If the person insists on just doing things their own way, it is going to be more difficult for them to escape. They have to get the help they need because this will make recovery more likely to happen and much easier.
  • · It is best to keep an open mind and try not to dismiss things out of hand. It can sometimes be the thing that we least want to do that will prove to be the most beneficial for us. It is usual for people to feel resistant to the idea of rehab, but this can be the one thing that can really help them make a clean break from addiction.
  • · It is vital that the individual gets rid of any ambivalence they might have about recovery. This means that get rid of any idea that they might ever be able to use alcohol or drugs again. This type of thinking is toxic, and it will prevent the individual from finding peace in recovery. They will be leaving the door open for relapse, and this means that their sobriety is on a shaky foundation. You need to fully commit to this new life and understand that even if you manage to stay sober for fifty years, it will still not be safe for you to use drugs again.
  • · Staying sober has to become your number one priority in life. This doesn’t mean that you need to spend the rest of your life thinking about staying sober. It just means that you never allow anything to get in the way of you and your sobriety. The reason for why it has to be your priority is that if you stop being sober you are going to lose everything anyway.
  • · You have to take charge of your own recovery, and there is no point in waiting for other people to fix you. It is up to you to get the most out of addiction treatment such as rehab. You have to be proactive if you want to enjoy as strong recovery. The whole point of addiction treatment is to empower you.

These are just some of the good reasons for why it is so important to get help to end your addiction. When you call us on 0800 140 4824 we will be happy to discuss how addiction treatment might improve things for you personally. We will also be able to make suggestions for where you can go in Dundee for help.
