Are You Ready to Walk Away from Addiction?

The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result. The revolving door of active addiction, is one of the most difficult, if not, the most difficult ways of life to walk away from.  

A person will never be cured of addiction, but that person may remain in remission of the disease by following the proper strategies. In no way am I preaching to follow a specific program, as everyone is different, but most tools in all programs, are very similar. 

If the life of a person continues to cycle in turmoil, and substance use / abuse is part of that life, then it is a great time to evaluate if the disease of addiction is prevelant.  This isn’t measured by irrational ways of thinking such as: “I’m only going to drink on weekends and special occasions”, or “I’ll cut back and just drink beer”. If addiction disease worked like that, I wouldn’t be 5 1/2 Years in active recovery / sober. 

If you do decide enough is enough, or you think you have hit rock bottom, you must seek medical assistance while going through withdrawal.  You can actually die from alcohol withdrawal. 

Is today the day you decide enough is enough?  Are you ready to start healing physically, and psychologically? Most importantly, are you ready to take back your life? 


If you just walked away
What could I really say?
Would it matter anyway?
Would it change how you feel?

I am the mess you chose
The closet you cannot close,
The devil in you I suppose
‘Cause the wounds never heal.
But everything changes
If I could turn back the years
If you could learn to forgive me
Then I could learn to feel,

Sometimes the things I say
In moments of disarray
Succumbing to the games we play
To make sure that it’s real.

When it’s just me and you.
Who knows what we could do.
If we can just make it through
The toughest part of the day.

Stay here together
And we could
Conquer the world
If we could
Say that forever
Is more than just a word.

If you just walked away
What could I really say?
Would it matter anyway?.
It wouldn’t change how you feel.
