How to End Your Addiction

The most important thing when it comes to ending an addiction is your own determination. If you are not fully committed to this change, it will mean that you will not be able to get the most out of any treatment programme. It is possible to enter rehab and just treat the whole thing like a prison sentence, or like you are staying in a holiday camp, and this will mean that you will learn very little and will be likely to relapse once you leave – if you make it that far. You must be 100% committed to recovery and anything less than this may be the cause of your later undoing. The most common reason for why people will not be fully committed to recovery will include:

· The individual is trying to get sober to please other people.

· They have decided to get sober in order to escape the consequences of their actions. The individual will agree to addiction treatment, but they have no real intention of changing – they just want to get people off their back.

· The person still believes that they will one day be able to use alcohol or drugs safely again. They feel convinced that there is still some enjoyment left in that life for them. The person may be convinced that if they can stay sober for a few weeks, months, or years, that this will mean that they will then be able to return to the substance. This type of thinking is extremely common amount people who are dealing with addiction, and it is probably the most common reason for why they never succeed in breaking away from addiction. It means that they are not fully committed.

· The individual may be dealing with low self-esteem or low self-efficacy, and this is preventing them from fully committing. The low self-esteem means that the individual feels that they deserve the suffering of addiction, so this can prevent them from moving forward. The low self-efficacy means that the individual doubts their own abilities, and this prevents them from putting enough effort into their recovery. Low self-esteem and low self-efficacy occur because of the addiction process, and they will be reversed in recovery. In the meantime, the individual can benefit from things like motivational interviewing, peer support, and being in a therapeutic environment.

· The individual has fallen into the trap of negative thinking, and this is preventing them from fully engaging in recovery. Instead, they may feel full of cynicism and anger about their situation.
