If you or someone you care about has an alcohol addiction, you are in a very difficult, but treatable, position.
The most important part of overcoming alcohol addiction is wanting to have a different life. Not everyone actually wants to quit drinking when they make the decision to overcome their addiction; many times it is more about wanting a different life than wanting not to drink.
Twelve Step programs are very successful at helping people change their lives and overcome alcohol dependence, and many people find these groups invaluable in overcoming their addiction to alcohol and moving on with a more productive and useful, not to mention much happier, life.
In recent years the FDA has approved a medication for use in the United States by people seeking to overcome alcohol dependence. Campral is a prescription drug, and you will need to talk with your doctor about whether this medication is appropriate for you.
You will need support when you begin to fight your alcohol addiction, whether that is a Twelve Step group, your family, friends, colleagues, or a combination of all of the above. Overcoming alcohol addiction is not just a matter of not drinking. As stated, it is a complete lifestyle and life change. This can be very challenging under the best of conditions, and having people you can rely on and turn to for support makes these life changes much easier.
Another important thing to realize, in seeking to withdraw from your alcohol addiction, is that you are not a bad person because you are dependent on alcohol. You simply have a brain that reacts to alcohol more strongly than other people’s brains, causing an addiction. Your decision to let go of your alcohol dependence proves, to you and to everyone around you, that you are doing something to make your life better, and that alone proves that you are a good person.
