Addiction is a lie and eventually in your Journey you will painful come to this truth. The addict goes through this pain putting themselves into that position of what is call, “rock bottom!”
Now with some rock bottom is death, and Lord knows I wish this on no one. Sometimes rock bottom is watching or hearing someone close to you dying from this disease. In fact all addicts are dying each day for they are not living their lives to the fullest being in bondage to this curse. Repeating each day over and over again, living only for that dopamine euphoria rush feeling in the neurotransmitters inside their brain. Giving them a false state of mind only to bring them down hard into hell if they don’t repeat it.
This chemical dependency will grow as you will build more of a tolerance for the substance. This is where it can be very dangerous and can lead towards overdose. It is actually affecting not just the addicts lives, but every one that loves them. This is why the addict will run off believing that they are sparing their families and friends. This hold on them is so strong that they would rather trade their families in for the drugs along with all the other issues that arrives from being on the dependency of the substance.
Don’t like what I’m saying, tough it is the truth! And yes it is painful and I’m not saying this to be mean or judgmental at all, I’m saying this out of experience and love. Once the addict admit they are one, that is the biggest step for denial is the biggest lie about addiction.
Congratulations, now your journey continues, the next lie is that you are no good and will never be any good! You see then there is more lies piling on top of each other, layer after layer. This is the journey of the addict. All based on lies, and once you introduce the truth and shed some light on it will change your life, but if you only want it! You will have to fight to get your life back to being sober again.
Sometime some addicts find out but are not ready to accept the truth and continue down the path towards rock bottom. You see it does not have to be so severe, it is all up and when the addict wants more out of life. Help is out there if you want it, put yourself around people who truly love you and you can trust. I know some of you might have trust issues with family and love one, but your family is blood, and for me you can not replace that with a lie, addiction!
Love concurs all! Towards your recovery Peace and Gods Speed my friend 🙂
