The Key Factor to Overcoming Alcoholism
Posted by:   |  Feb 18, 2011

Alcohol is one most widely abused substance in today’s society and its negative effect is rapidly growing.

Many times alcoholism starts off as an innocent drink. Gradually, lack of self control and discipline leads to a life of torture and misery. It has been said that falling into alcoholism is easy, but getting out of it is very hard. Once you get to a point where you are no longer in control and that the substance controls you, then you are officially consider an alcoholic and you are in a serious trouble as you spiral down.

When the alcohol or other substance controls you, it is then when you help the most, but this is also where the biggest challenge lies. Anyone who has a problem can only be helped once he or she wants to be helped. No matter how good a psychotherapist you have, no one can be helped if they resist the idea of being helped. No one can change without the willingness to change.

So, if you want to break free from alcoholism you need to reach that point where you want to change. As long as you deny the problem change is impossible. To get there, you need to realize and admit that you have a problem. You need to admit to yourself that alcohol has taken a prominent position in your life and that you no longer have control over it. Once you get to this point, help is possible.
