Addiction recovery is possible. It might not seem like it when you're craving, when you're at the bottom of the barrel, when you're at the end of your rope. The only time it is not possible is when you are dead.
Don't wait till the dark angel is knocking on your door to start your recovery program. Do it right now, you only have today, so do it today!
Addiction to any substance is created over a period of time by choosing to use. The consequence of sustained substance abuse is addiction. It also means that your brain's physical structure and the way it works has changed in ways that can persist long after using stops.
The question you have to ask yourself is why did you start using to begin with? A thinking disorder is usually present in the mind of an addict. Dealing with the thought processes is a critical part of recovery.
The time has come to tell yourself that your self medicating program is not working. Life was not meant to be lived in a substance induced haze.
Affirmations for radical success in addiction recovery can help you along the way. But know this -- affirmations are NOT the same as willpower. Setting up your willpower against a chemically altered brain is the same as setting up a title match between..
Guess who is going to win? Here's a clue -- it won't be your willpower.
Addiction begins with choosing to use, recovery begins the same way -- choose to quit. Addicts must take responsibility for their recovery. Own it. Having a self-inflicted brain disease does not absolve you of your behaviour.
The physical part of addiction recovery is not very important. The harsh withdrawal symptoms of drugs and alcohol addiction can be managed with appropriate medications.
What is important is dealing with the compulsion, the craving, that happens even when you know you're going to destroy yourself.
Can affirmations help? Yes, they can. Science is proving that when you change your mind, your brain physically changes too. The effects of long term substance abuse can be overcome.
So how do you deal with addiction? What should your first approach to addiction recovery be?
Addiction exists totally in your mind -- it is the result of your thoughts, compounded by altered brain chemistry and nothing else. To begin to overcome the cravings of addiction you absolutely must change your thoughts.
The fastest and most effective method to change your thoughts is by using affirmations. Affirmations combined with brainwave entrainment. Entrainment will put your mind into a receptive state and affirmations will inject healing, calming thoughts into your subconscious mind.
The result will be recovery from addiction without the need for pills, endless recovery meetings, or any other dependency. Do you want relief from your addiction? Do you want your life back again? Include affirmations in your addiction recovery routine.
