Benefits of Ending Your Addiction

Even when people are able to accept that substance abuse is destroying their life, that it is slowly killing them, the person can still feel reluctant to end the behaviour. Fear only seems to be able to motivate people so much, and it is often not enough to get the person to quit alcohol or drugs. A health scare may convince the individual to quit for a few weeks or months, but they eventually forget this fear as they slip back into the denial of addiction. In order for the person to end the addiction, they need a carrot as well as a stick. They need to understand that there are many benefits to taking this step including:

  • · The individual will not be able to undo the damage of the past, but they can rebuild something that is far better than they have now. The person is likely to find that many of the things that they thought were lost forever will come back to them once they become sober. People find that they do get a second chance in life.
  • · The aim of recovery is not to bring the person back to the place they were before falling into addiction. That would not be a very satisfactory outcome because there will have been reasons why the individual feel into addiction in the first place, and these reasons are likely to be still there. The aim of recovery is to bring the person to a new and much better way of living.
  • · The thing that drove the individual into addiction will often be an inability to cope with things. By abusing alcohol and drugs the individual will not be coping with anything – they will just be hiding. In recovery, the person can develop the tools they need to cope with things, and this means that they no longer feel any need to hide.
  • · The ironic thing is that that which attracted the individual to substance abuse is to be found in recovery and not in addiction. That sense of well being and happiness is known as serenity, and the individual can gain this by dealing with life on life’s terms.
  • · One of the other benefits of being sober is that the person has the opportunity to make amends for some of the harm they have caused. They will usually be able to repair relationships, and become a person that people want to spend time with. The ability to have satisfying interpersonal relationships is one of the real benefits of getting sober.
  • · Almost every escape of the person’s life will be improved by getting sober. They will also be in the ideal position to begin achieving their dreams.
