Get Ready to Change Your Life

When you come to the stage where you feel ready to break away from addiction, you may experience mixed emotions. There can be feelings of excitement and anticipation about embarking on a new life, but there can also be fear of the unknown. The sad truth is that there are many people who put up with the misery of addiction because they are too afraid to change – they may believe in the old saying “it is better the devil you know.” The reality is that it is only ever by taking a step into the unknown that we get to experience anything different than we already have. By sticking with what they know the addicted individual confines themselves to a future of misery as things go from bad to worse.

Here are a few ideas for how you can get ready for this important change in your life:

  • · Write a letter to yourself in the future – say one year from now. In this letter, you can write down all your hopes for sober living. Try to keep things fairly realistic, but you can certainly have plenty of ambitious goals for yourself.
  • · Read stories of other people who have already gone on this path of recovery. It is unlikely that your journey will be exactly the same, that would be boring, but you will get some good pointers for what to expect.
  • · One way to overcome fear of the unknown is to get information. Find out all you can about recovery and what you can expect in the coming weeks and months.
  • · Speak to people in recovery and ask them to share their experiences. These people will be able to inspire you and offer you support and encouragement. It is the opportunity to spend time with these individuals that make recovery groups such a good option. These days you will also be able to find recovery groups online, and these can be fantastic too – although the face-to-face contact is arguably more important.
  • · Try to feel excited about this new life. No matter how far you have fallen because of your addiction, you will be able to turn things around. If you stick to your plan for recovery, you can work towards becoming the type of person you always wanted to be. The irony is that those things that the person went looking for when they began abusing alcohol or drugs will often be there waiting for them in recovery.
  • · Keep in mind that it is okay that you feel a bit of trepidation about the future – this is natural. Feel the fear but continue your journey into recovery anyway.
