Complete Addiction Recovery with Authentic Spiritual Guidance

Addiction can feel like an unbeatable force that influences many areas of your life. This is because addiction can change how you think, physically feel, and act. Your addiction is probably getting in the way of work, relationships with family and friends, and stopping you from reaching your goals. When addiction interferes with so much, it can feel like you’ve lost control of your life.

Addiction Can Take Over Your Thoughts

Addiction can bring on an overwhelming feeling of nonstop worry, fear, and thoughts 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”
  • “It’s 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 and overwhelm your mind. When thoughts run through your head on a constant loop, they leave you feeling frustrated, exhausted, and irritable.

Addiction is a vicious cycle between craving and obsession, where you are consumed with pursuing 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 they will do to you, and you’re left with guilt, remorse, and shame.

Addiction Can Change You Physically

Addiction can wreak havoc not only on your mind but your body, too. People who experience addiction often complain about not feeling well physically due to withdrawal. Below are some ways that addiction can manifest itself physically. Ask yourself the following questions to see whether addiction has been affecting you in this manner.

  • Have you noticed that you often feel drained of energy? Like you ran a marathon?
  • Do you feel muscle soreness without exercise or muscle tension in your body?
  • Do you have difficulty sleeping?
  • Do you have chest pains or feel tightness in your chest?
  • Has your appetite been lower than usual?
  • Do you get stomach discomfort? (It can manifest as nausea or diarrhea in some)
  • Do you notice you have shortness of breath or difficulty breathing?
  • Do you experience cold sweats or chills?
  • Do you notice increased anxiety?

You Can Learn How to Overcome Addiction

At Through The Archway, you can learn how to stop addiction from attacking your mind, body, and soul. Through The Archway is not the place to sit on a couch and vent about your feelings and past. Nor will you spend countless hours in therapy sessions or groups going deep into your childhood – because that doesn’t make your addiction disappear. Instead, we want to arm you with solution-focused and effective techniques to overcome your addiction.

During our time together, we will guide you through a process of actionable techniques to set you on the path to overcoming addiction. Then, on your own, you will start applying these techniques to your daily life. Don’t worry; we will break the techniques into simple steps so you won’t get overwhelmed. We will also help you apply them by creating a routine so you have the greatest chance of success.

Think of us as personal trainers you have hired to get your mind, body, and soul into the best shape possible. We will cheer you on and support you every step of the way but also hold you accountable so you work steadily towards your goals. If you start to doubt yourself, we will remind you that “You’ve got this!” because you deserve to break free from the symptoms and cycle of addiction.
