Alcohol does many things to the human body. First and the most important thing is that it is designed to get you feeling good and drunk as heck.  That is the main purpose in my opinion, and it does a great job at it.

Many people that drink alcohol can handle them self in a sense that they know when it is time to stop drinking alcohol and then there are those, such as myself, that don't know when enough is enough.  When we start out experimenting with drinking alcohol many of us don't realize if we are not careful this fun time drinking can turn into an addiction.  Do you know what your addiction is doing to you?  I bet not, for the simple reason, this addiction to alcohol has been slowly creeping up on you and now you can't figure out why in the world must you have alcohol every single day of your life.  Many of us cannot live without this harmful poison in their bodies. We would start to go crazy and feeling on edge, nervous, shaky and the whole nine yards due to the absence of this poison we call alcohol not in your bodies.

Many people live, breathe, sleep with alcohol continuously on their minds. I have the right to say this because the minute I would wake, of course after drinking all night, my first thoughts were not, " I wonder how my day will be today." "I wonder if I will be productive today." No, the first thing I thought of was, "when is it time to have my first beer."  How pitiful is that I might ask you? I am sure many people that have an addiction to alcohol the same and some might even crack open a can of beer or take a shot of booze minutes after they wake up to start their day and get their head out of the clouds from the night before drinking alcohol.

When you start to think to yourself, what is this addiction I have doing to my life and what is it doing to my family and friends?  None of us that are addicted to alcohol ever for a moment think about the damage we are doing to our self and the hurt and pain we are causing to others, such as you family, spouse, and your children.

We generally get addicted to bad things very easily. Don't allow it to take control of your life, otherwise you will suffer a lot.

. Drug addicted or alchol addicted people just become selfish overtime. Whenever a person starts to drug or drink alcohol, he less care about his well being as well as his/her family. They give lame exuses like stress, tension and pressure etc. but all they are doing is lying to themselves. Becoming drug addict isn't going to solve anything, but your will power is what's going to be counted at the end. Good post, buddy.

Be it addiction to whatever substance and the list is insurmountably long...... The first step is to admit that you have a problem.  The substance is only a crutch for the real trouble that led you there.  It's a way to escape further and further into the problem.  Problems are not negative things, they are an opportunity to learn & grow.  You have a choice to run and hide in an addiction or take the challenge to stop the self deceit and self betrayal.  By wanting to solve the problem you choose to look truthfully at yourself & then to see how you became entirely selfish based upon your decision to continue to betray yourself.

Denial can be a life long predicament.  The truth in its nakedness is never very pretty, but once you speak it, you will be amazed at how your life will change.  How your desire to change yourself will make your life & the life of others around you a little better.

Addiction is a psychological decease where a person is obsessed with a "thing". Addiction is not always about drugs and alcohol. Sometimes, a person can be addicted to other stuff like gadgets, action figures, stuff toys, clothes, shoes, etc. So, addiction is not always a bad thing.

I agree with what you've mentioned and thanks for the advice. That mindset is very much applicable too to any type of addiction. Being married to a recovering porn addict, I know the feeling of being afraid to lose myself and that of my marriage and family- devastating. Addiction not only destroys the life of the addict, but the lives of those who love him dearly. But if an addict admits his situation and accepts to go through the path of wellness, nothing is impossible.

There are times when you require therapeutic mind
expeditiously in spite of the fact that the condition itself is not life
debilitating.
