Addiction is a serious matter don’t underestimate it.
Every human being has a pain a hurt that they wish they could escape from.
When your pain has driven you to an addictive lifestyle do not underestimate it
Don’t say I can stop at any time. If you can why don’t you?
Unquestionably many addicted people have never resolved or overcome their addiction because they never took it seriously. Addiction in your circle of family and friends has prevailed because it was not taken seriously enough.
Are you guilty of not taking your addiction seriously enough?
Realize that addiction has been overcome by millions of human beings, they who overcame are those who stopped underestimating the problem. They accepted that this problem is serious and they did something about it. They accepted that their life was out of control and has become unmanageable.
Don’t postpone you need for help.
Your addiction will not just go away. It will not just solve itself. Don’t postpone don’t procrastinate. Addiction has a built in capability to grow more serious with the passing of time. To wait for someone to come to your rescue will give your addiction time to multiply its negative fall-out.
Right now understand that you are personally responsible for getting the help you need to overcome your addiction. If you expect others to rescue you, you will be disappointed and you will spoil your chances of recovery.
Stop the blame game
Don’t aggravate your problem by loathing yourself, blaming your past, blaming others, blaming your circumstances. This will aggravate the problem and it will not help you one bit. You will be defeated in your recovery before you even start. Don’t fix the blame fix the problem. Don’t make things worse with self-pity, resentment, anger and lack of hope for the future.

Many addicts have lost the battle against addiction and are now are laid to rest. They, or their inner circle failed to identify the seriousness, failed to predict the final out-come, failed to decide, to execute a plan in the early stages of addiction.
The famous saying rings true: “jails, institutions and death.
Today we are at a cemetery representing many a premature death that could have been avoided. The final result of not taking addiction seriously. Remember: “to-days choices are to-morrows realities “Robert Schuller”
