Do You Have an Addiction Problem?

If alcohol or drug use is causing difficulties in your life, this is a sign that you have a problem. It may not necessarily mean that you are addicted, but the reality is that most people do not even begin to look for solutions to this type of problem until they have already crossed that line. At the moment, it is not necessary for you to become overly hung up on labels. All you need to know is that this behaviour is causing you problems and you need to change this.

If you are considering entering one of AH's local drug rehab centres to undergo detox and withdrawal, call us on 0800 140 4824. Our team will listen to your situation and make some appropriate suggestions about what is available in you area. We have many drug rehabilitation centres in Plymouth.

Do You Need to Quit Your Addiction Right Away?

Even if you are able to acknowledge that alcohol or drug use is becoming a problem, you may not feel ready to quit. It could be that at the moment the negative impact of this behaviour is manageable, and you still feel that you can get some enjoyment out of substance abuse. This optimistic view that you have all the time in the world to quit the addiction can be bolstered because you know people who are far worse off than you. You may decide that you will wait to see if things become more unmanageable before you decide to stop. Here are some reasons for why this way of thinking is dangerous:

  • · There really is no way that you can be sure that you will be able to quit later. If you do not feel willing to quit now, what makes you think that this will change as your problems increase?
  • · The reality is that you may become less able to quit the addiction as times goes on. This is because the process of addiction hammers away at your self-esteem and self-efficacy. You can reach a point where you no longer feel able to quit even though you can see how the behaviour is making life hell. Worse of all, you may begin to wonder if this is the best you can hope for in life.
  • · Some people will experience a slow descent into addiction while others progress much faster. There is no way to tell how fast you will progress in the future because things can speed up and slow down. Just because there are other people who have managed to survive addiction for decades, does not mean that you will be able to do the same. You progression could be so fast that you have days rather than years to quit.
  • · If you keep on using alcohol or drugs, it is going to lead to a steady deterioration in your life. This can be stopped in its tracks by choosing drug rehab. UK experts say that the sooner you begin fighting your addiction through drug rehab treatment, then the sooner you will be able to enjoy a better way of living. It just does not make any sense for you to delay your happiness for even one day longer than necessary.
  • · Somewhere in the progression of addiction you will cross a line, and after do this, your chances of a full recovery will no longer be possible. This can happen if you damage your liver beyond repair or you develop something like alcoholic dementia. You may still be able to end the addiction after you have crossed this line, but you will take these scars with you into recovery. It just makes sense that you should stop before accumulating any more scars.
