What hitting rock bottom means for people struggling with drugs or alcohol is as individual as the person experiencing the painful physical and psychological effects of addiction.
While many never realize that exact moment they have crossed the line, for some, losing a job could be a wake-up call. Others may end up overdosing or being arrested for driving under the influence before the realization hits that it may be time to make a big change. Some just might be tired of waking up hung over.
It’s not always easy to shine a spotlight on your own drinking or drug use, but taking an honest assessment of daily habits can help determine if you are nearing what rock bottom might represent for you.
Are alcohol or drugs beginning to interfere with your interpersonal relationships or causing you to miss events, work or other important obligations?
Have you made resolutions not to drink or do drugs but come up short or needed a morning drink just to start feeling better?
Does it sometimes seem like there must be a better way to live than the way you are right now?
Do you miss the way things used to be?
Thankfully, it’s not necessary to keep digging deeper into addiction before you create change. The decision to be freed from substance abuse can be made at any time life is becoming unmanageable due to alcohol or drugs.
