An Alternative to Treatment in South Florida
Addiction can feel like an unbeatable force that can have an influence on multiple areas of your life. This is because addiction can change how you think, how you physically feel, and how you act. Your addiction is probably getting in the way of how you’re doing at work, how you’re getting along with your family and friends, and even stopping you from reaching your goals. When addiction is consuming so many parts of your life you can feel like addiction has taken over your life.
Addiction Can Take Over Your Thoughts
Addiction can bring on an overwhelming feeling of nonstop worry and fear along with thoughts that you wish you could run away from. It is common for people experiencing addiction to express some of the thoughts below:
“My mind is constantly going 100 mph”
“Its going to be different this time”
“I am only going to use on the weekends”
“Just one more and I will never do this again”
“I don’t feel like myself”
When you experience addiction, negative and irrational thoughts can flood your mind and make you feel overpowered. When thoughts are running through your head on a constant loop, they will leave you feeling very frustrated, exhausted, and even irritable.
Addiction is a vicious cycle between craving and obsession you are consumed about pursing the next fix for drugs and alcohol. Your mind becomes a chronic liar. It tells you what drugs and alcohol will do for you rather than what it will do to you, and your left with feelings of guilt, remorse and shame.
You deserve to live the life that you want.
