For most people, a day without a sip of the hot drink seems impossible. They have made alcohol their second spouse and they can’t imagine living without this hot spouse. The worst about this spouse is that he’s very addictive. Once he grips your blood, a divorce won’t be enough to get rid of him. People have lost families, marriages, friendships, money, positions and dignity due to their marriage with alcohol.
While you may have your own persuasive theory as to why you’re addicted to alcoholic drinks and why you can’t divorce this spouse, it won’t change the fact that alcohol is a poison that sucks your health, money and life dry. Show me a drunkard who’s a billionaire today. Exactly – there’s none. How can you be drunk and still have a sober mind of building wealth? Impossible. Show me a drunkard who’s respected and admired in your society now. None. If there is, it’s not him or her they really admire, but their money or the vain luxurious they own.
Here are reasons why you’re still addicted:
1. You don’t love yourself
Self love is not in drinking lots of alcohol. Unless you’re deceived, it’s clear that alcohol doesn’t benefit you in anyway. In fact, it does more harm than good. If you loved yourself, you wouldn’t allow something harmful to enter your body knowing Very well that they’ll be negative outcomes. Why on earth would you take poison into your body? Simple: you don’t love yourself.
2. You are deceived
Growing up, you have heard and have been taught by your friends, family that alcohol helps you forget your problems and relax. They told you that it’s impossible to have fun without alcohol. You were told that alcohol cures stress and makes you feel free and happy. Newsflash: all the people who told you this don’t love you at all. Secondly, what they told you isn’t true. Think I’m lying? Ask yourself, how many problems has alcohol solved in your life? Exactly, none!
3. You are weak
People who resort to alcoholic drinks for any foolish reason are weak internally. No Matter how old you are, you’re still immature. You don’t have a backbone to stand for and do the right thing. You don’t have what it takes to face a problem head on and persevere to find a solution. You don’t have the mental, spiritual capacity and strength to endure difficulties and overcome them.
If things don’t go your way, you take alcohol thinking that things will get better. You are lost. Seek help before it is too late.
