Many people feel the negative after-effects of drinking alcohol but are unaware that they have a drinking problem. In time, what starts out as an innocent social activity becomes a habit and then gradually crosses over into a physiological and psychological addiction causing havoc in your life.
Since alcoholism and addiction are not the problems but are just symptoms of the problems, a psychotherapist can help you discover, manage and resolve the underlying psychological issues that have led to your dependence.
Overcoming an addiction to alcohol can be a long and bumpy road. At times, it may even feel impossible. But the fact is that is very possible to overcome any kind of addiction, including alcohol. It is not easy, but the reward by the end of the tunnel is freedom and happiness. You don’t have to wait until you hit rock bottom; you can make a change now.
Building a healthy and successful life in recovery requires high level of commitment and effort. Ending the substance abuse and the addiction is the most critical step, but it is only the first step. This is why it is important to understand that the recovery is a process and not a single event. In order to keep their recovery on the right track individuals will need to overcome many challenges (physical, emotional and psychological). Once individuals have established themselves decisively in sobriety, they will become more capable and skillful in dealing with obstacles and temptations that takes place naturally in their daily lives. They will never reach a point where there are no more challenges to face or free of temptations, but they may develop the capacity to manage their emotions and deal with their challenge in a much easier way.
