Do Not Waste One More Day to Addiction

Every day that you remain trapped in addiction is a wasted one. It is a day that you could have spent in recovery and building a better life. The reality is that so long as you remain trapped in the downward spiral, things are going to keep on getting worse. You may still feel like you have good days as well as bad days, but these good days will tend to become fewer and fewer. It also needs to be pointed out that a good day in addiction is almost on par with a bad day in recovery – we just don’t see that because our addicted mind works hard to convince us that things aren’t so bad. If you can see where your life is going because of the substance abuse, we would urge you to quit right away. Call us here on 0800 140 4824 to find out more about your options in the Carlisle area.

Ending Addiction Means a New Start in Life

A common reason for why people can feel less than enthusiastic about breaking away from addiction is that they believe that the best they can hope for is that it will return them to how things were before the substance abuse. This idea of going back to square one is not really that appealing because the individual is unlikely to have been very satisfied with life back then. If their previous attempt at sober living had been all that great, it is doubtful that they would have wound up becoming addicted. The reality is that recovery is not about returning people to where they were, but it more about allowing them to build a much better life than anything they have known before.

The reasons for why this new life can be so much better will include:

  • · One of the goals of addiction treatment is that the individual will be able to dig down to the root causes of the behaviour. This means dealing with those issues that made life so difficult when they were sober. The fact that these roots are removed will mean that things will be far more comfortable for the person, and there will be no need for them to hide behind alcohol or drugs.
  • · The most common reason for why people fall into addiction is that they feel unable to cope with life. If the individual enters addiction treatment, they will be able to develop new and effective coping strategies for dealing with things. It is not possible to remove all the stress from life, but it is certainly possible to become better at coping with this stress. Alcohol or drugs are the worst type of coping mechanism because ultimately it just makes things much worse.
  • · Most treatment programmes will provide the individual with life skills that they can use to help them find success. This will give the person an edge in life, as they will have the tools they need to help them achieve their goals. Most people never get a chance to develop these life skills, so in a way the person who enters recovery is at an advantage.
  • · If people manage to escape addiction, it can be a great learning experience. The individual can turn the pain of addiction into something that will be able to benefit them for the rest of their life. We can learn as much from our mistakes as we can from our successes.
