Why do you drink?

Filed under: Living a Healthy Lifestyle — by ReidmillerWrites @ 9:28

You drink because the alcohol makes you feel good. It helps you forget your problems. You suffer from chronic pain and drinking dulls it. Your job is stressful so stopping and having a few drinks after work calms you down. You are depressed, feeling anxious, nervous, worried, sad, overwhelmed, and on and on.

Your reason for drinking keeps you going back for more. If you stop what will happen? The stress returns, the pain returnsĀ or your emotions bounce back to depression, nervousness and panic.

More people manage to deal with all of these reasons without drinking than those you try to self-medicate, which means their is hope. You not only have the ability to stop drinking with rehab, but you learn how to manage your triggers.
