No Special Day for Ending Addiction

A tragic and all too common mistake that people make when dealing with addiction problems is that they wait around for a special day when they will be able to stop. The individual can develop the idea that if they wait around long enough that recovery will come to them. This is a mistake. There is no special day for ending addiction. There is only the time when the person makes the decision to quit and turns this into a reality. This is something that the person can do at any time, but they need to do it as soon as possible because the longer they wait the harder it can be for them to recover.


One of the most common reasons for why the individual will wait for a special day is that they have heard about rock bottom. This is the common claim made by people that they gave up their addiction after hitting rock bottom. Those who have heard this claim can misunderstand this to mean that the individual had reached some special place in the downward spiral where giving up became easy. This sort of thing makes sense because by losing everything it is sure to make the individual more desperate and more willing to stop – isn’t it? This misunderstanding of what rock bottom means is the cause of a great deal of suffering. The reality is that no amount of suffering is going to ensure that people are able to stop drinking or using drugs – if it were, there would be nobody who was able to keep on with the behaviour until it killed them.


All that is really meant by hitting rock bottom is that the person has decided that they have had enough. It is no special day; it is just a simple decision. The individual can have this rock bottom at any time they like. Some people will have a high rock bottom, which means that they have suffered relatively little before they were ready to stop. There is no advantage of falling any lower into addiction, so the best situation is for the person to have their rock bottom be as high as possible.


The denial that supports the addiction really can be tricky. Even when the individual is able to wake up to the reality of what alcohol and drugs is doing to them, they can still remain trapped. This is because the denial will now be telling them that they have all the time in the world to fix the problem. This is a dangerous way of thinking as there is no telling how fast the addiction will progress, and the individual could cause irreparable damage at any time.
