In your mind’s eye, no matter what it is that you are setting out to do, you have an idea of how you would like it to go and what the end results will be. This starts from planning your day to jotting down a simple grocery list or maybe even checking a few things off your bucket list. In a sense, you paint a picture of what it all will look like, or maybe you’re just not that much a planner. Even the most spontaneous person claims just enough responsibility for themselves to make day-to-day plans.
This is just surface stuff, such as waking up, getting dressed, making breakfast, taking care of the kids, and off to work or school. There is a deeper dive. A drive that comes from deep down inside, right from your soul. The things that make you tick and make you who you are. What does that look like? Have you ever taken time out from the hustle and bustle of daily life to sit and think about it?

Addiction in Everyday Life
Active addiction looks and feels empty and dark, alone, and misunderstood. Not just misunderstood by others, but mostly by yourself. The only plan for the person using drugs or alcohol is finding and getting the next fix, drink, or pill. Daily events revolve around how and where it is going to come from. Even the most functioning person using drugs or alcohol, who has a job and a family with normal responsibilities, plans around their drinking and drugging. Will there be enough pills to get through the weekend? Will there be alcohol at the family, work, or social event?
In many cases, the individual is driven solely by the obsession to use. Along with the obsession comes the rippling effect of compulsive behaviors, so lying, manipulation, and deceit become second nature. Little by little, over time, the person’s use and behaviors seem to begin to chip away at their nature of being kind, loving, caring, and compassionate. Now, they have a self-serving life with the use of drugs and alcohol, which has taken its place at the top of their priorities. Each day looks just like the day before and the day before that over and over again. Their actions paint a deep dark picture and perceived as their hopeless reality.
Acknowledging the Addiction
Often there comes a moment of clarity, an inner voice, that causes you to decide enough is enough. A desire for something different becomes a cry for help. The first step is the hardest. To admit there is an addiction and that help is needed may possibly be the toughest point that you come to before finally getting the help they so deservingly need. The gift of desperation has a way of turning hopeless individuals into hopefuls. With the help of a sponsor as a guide through the 12-steps and regular fellowship meetings, recovery from addiction is possible. Your thoughts and thinking begin to change. Relationships with friends and family begin to mend.
