Is Willpower Enough?
Written by Lorraine on August 23, 2012
I came across an article that asked: Are you drinking too much? After reading the article, I read the comments left by the readers. There was one post that stood out from this particular article. The post said, “I’m sitting here with a drink in my hand reading your post. I wrote the word change on my hand today. It didn’t work!” For this person, he knows that he wants to change and needs to change, but his urge to drink is greater than his willpower and it keeps him trapped in his addiction.
For some it’s easier to quit; however, if you have been drinking for a long time, quitting isn’t as easy as declaring you want to stop. You may have a physical dependence to alcohol and quitting cold turkey could be painful and even dangerous. Alcohol detox is necessary to help you with the withdrawal symptoms. After detox, receiving treatment for alcohol addiction will help you truly begin to break free from the addiction.
Kicking the habit of drinking can be difficult and frightening. It takes a lot of courage to make a change, but it is something that will benefit your life forever.
