Am I ready to quit drinking?

Are You Ready For Recovery?

Rehabilitation from alcoholism is not possible unless the alcoholic is willing and ready to change. It may seem odd to you if you have lost your job, your family and everything you thought you loved and you still don't want to quit drinking. This is a normal part of the disease. Read that again: this is a normal part of the disease.

If you really want some help, there is hope for you. If you are reading this and wondering if you are the only person out there who feels this "crazy," then you are mistaken. There is a world of people who have felt as you do and who have made drastic life changes. And that change is available to everyone who wants it. But before you read on, ask yourself:

  • Have you had enough of alcohol?
  • Are you at a point where you cannot move forward?
  • Are you so sick of doing the same things and expecting different results, only to find yourself flat out on your back again?
  • Have you heard from enough people that your behavior makes them sad, or even want to keep you out of their lives?
If you answered "yes" to these questions, then you are ready to embark on the very difficult process, yet ultimately rewarding journey of true recovery/rehabilitation from alcoholism.
