Do you want to know “What causes people to become Alcoholics”?
Simple….Back in the beginning of most peoples first drinks of growing up, or at whatever age we had our first drink, our first drinking experiences usually comes as a result of some sort of celebration.
* Perhaps a winning high school football game
* Someones happy wedding
* Making a big business deal
* Having a great time with friends
* It could be anything but usually in celebration of life
CELEBRATION OF LIFE IS AWESOME! WOO-HOO! PARTY!
And this is where the problem lays. A celebration just by definition is a happy moment in life. Then we “reward” ourselves with alcohol at the end of our celebration.
So, being the dimwitted human beings we are, we start associating alcohol with the great feelings we experienced with real life happiness in those celebrations.
But it is not. We get it backwards and we get confused.
“Happinesss results in Alcohol, Alcohol never results in Happiness” ~ Earth Zebra
We start thinking by drinking alcohol we then can have the wonderful feeling of real life celebrations and happiness we were “conditioned” to associate with alcohol. It is normal. Think about how many times we have had wonderful days and then rewarded or additionally celebrating ourselves by having a drink! It is normal to want to always have these happy moments. So, the human brain says, well, I just had a horrible day at work, how about I be happy like I was on all those wonderful days I did something fabulous in life and then drank after.
Drinking to try and get the adrenaline rush we have when we are experiencing something wonderful in life doesn’t lead to the same adrenaline rush. It is fake. It doesn’t bring the same happiness of a true celebration of life moments.
So, we drink to try and find those happy moments again. Why wouldn’t we! Heck, life is hard enough and if you can bottle all our amazing moments in life and pop the bottle open to relive them?….Who wouldn’t! And so the merry-go-round starts spinning!
Then, in some people, we end up drinking night after night after night. We chase those happy moments we remember a falsely given a cheap, fake, version of happiness. We get the alcohol happiness but never achieve the same real life happiness that only real life moments and natural body adrenaline can produce!
“For true happiness only comes from real life experiences” ~ Earth Zebra
True happiness, and the adrenaline rush only comes from real life celebrations of life. Alcohol can not give you this.
Want to stop drinking? How to stop drinking? Simple, just realize that Happiness is what we experience in life. Happiness are the amazing moments we have in life. Alcohol is and should be only for those moments.
So, hey, if every day is an a Amazing day for you then go for it. However, for most of us, life every day is not.
I don’t have any problem with people drinking. I think AA (Alcoholics Anonymous), and any idiot / morons who say they are going to “rehab” is a fool. Rehab “doctors” are a bunch of loser people who have never drank and experienced life. They pushed their butt stained noses into books and never lived life. If you want real advice in how to stop drinking ask someone who has been there, gone back, been there, gone back, and has a control of the nasty dragon!
It’s not easy to quit drinking. It takes wanting to stop! If you don’t want too, don’t bother torchuring yourself or the idiot who suggested it! It takes a commitment to yourself to seeing a “new” future that you want more than the old one!
If someone asks you to stop drinking tell them you are Charlie Sheen and you are WINNING!
But beware, if you are not making $2,000,000, 20 times a year each television show episode then you might want to re-evaluate if you are truly WINNING! You just might be LOSING!
To stop drinking, you need to talk to yourself every single day of the first 2 weeks non-stop repeating, “I am not WINNING when I drink, everything is a MESS, I will drink when I’m WINNING again”!
Yes, I said it. WINNERS can drink again! LOSERS can not!
Are you a winner or a loser? Be honest.
Except for the very few we are all losers. The US news media has romanticized and glamorized models, actors, politicians, come to think of it, anyone in front of a camera!
Why is it that “ALL OF US” have to be force fed such fake expectations! Do I hear LAWSUIT? Yep! What is my cut since I pointed this out?
