I have paid a lot of attention recently to just what the symptoms of alcoholism are, how an alcoholic can recognize that they are indeed addicts and not just heavy drinkers and also just how much damage alcohol can cause to family relations as well as causing a negative effect to social behavior leading to complete isolation to the rest of the world.
Alcohol addiction has taken over many lives and infused the drinker with the belief that only through drinking can you survive your day. Giving in to this way of thinking is a path to disaster as you will always be reliant on the bottle for your sense of self.
Once this point is reached in an alcoholics life, it always appears to signal alarm bells from within, which is probably the last chance there is to actually quit drinking alcohol, so this is where I want to help in giving advice for those first few days before and after quitting drinking.
Your decision to quit drinking will affect not only you but your loved ones as well and it is these people that I want you to keep in the forefront of your mind during this process. Decide on a date to quit, one that is reasonable, and as each day gets closer you need to reduce the amount you are drinking so that on your chosen date you will be ready to give it up.
If it is feasible you should try to take the week off work during that first week that you quit, even have your doctor give you a slip stating you missed work for medical reasons. Getting out of bed will be difficult the first few days and I want you to stay in bed if you want to while your body detoxifies.
When you need support don’t hesitate to call the people who want to see you succeed. If your first few days are simple don’t fall into the trap of getting over confident; having that celebratory drink often leads right back to the bottle.
Every day is crucial during the first 3 weeks and you will meet a different challenge every day, so make sure that you take the necessary time to get back to work, and if you continue to feel the same anxieties in life then you may need to take difficult decisions that will relieve you of any stress or pressure. Remember only you are your family are important, so even if it means reducing your standard of living drastically it is your life and future we are talking about.
