Lets take a look at our lives and see if we are truly happy while drinking alcohol. For myself I thought that I was very happy while drinking alcohol, but not noticing the people around me were very unhappy to say the least.
Sometimes a person addicted to alcohol or drugs for that matter think they are the happiest person alive until the bottom falls out from under them.
In order to live sober and live happy you are going to have to take that first step towards quitting drinking and starting that new life.
Living sober in the eyes of an alcoholic is not in their vocabulary, and certainly was not in mine. It takes some much thinking, willingness, desire and determination to be able just to walk away from an addiction that you have lived with for so many years.
When you really think about it, when there is alcoholism in a family who really suffers? Not only the alcoholic suffers, but the families of the alcoholic are going through some tough times as well. The alcoholic doesn’t see what is going on around them because they are blinded to the outside world and only concentrate on their addiction and when the next drink may be.
In order to be happy and be sober at the same time takes a lot of hard work. You must make up your mind that you have had enough and would like to change your life around for the better.
Begin to think and act with a positive attitude for the get go. This will help you in achieving your sobriety and without thinking positive nothing is going to happen. Negativity in anything in life including achieving sobriety will only lead you to a dead-end street, or in some cases rock bottom.
Just a word of wisdom and from my experiences drinking alcohol, I have never been happier in my live being now sober. I always thought that being sober is not the way to be.
I thought to myself, how can anyone have any fun at all being sober. How can you have fun without being buzzed, drunk or high? After becoming sober and the happiest I have ever been, I now can see that these people I used to down and make fun of because they didn’t drink alcohol where far more smarter and wiser than I.
I now can see just how they had sober fun and more fun than being drunk. So, think about your life and where it is heading by drinking alcohol and then think of being sober and how your life will be. I can say one thing, you will wake up every morning feeling refreshed, no hangovers, bright and cheerful and looking forward to a great sober day that’s in store for you.
If you want to live happy then think about living sober and you will see just how your life will change all for the better and you will now be able to enjoy and remember that day or evening being sober and happy.
