Help for Myself
It takes a lot of courage to face up to addiction, whether that's dependence on alcohol or on drugs. Recovery can seem like an impossible task, but it is possible to change and live a healthy life free from substance abuse. Your first step is recognizing that you have an addiction problem.
If you're concerned that you're dependent on substances, ask yourself the following:
- Do you use drugs or alcohol to suppress emotions?
- Are you drinking or taking drugs more frequently?
- Do you need a larger quantity of drugs or alcohol to get a "high"?
- Do you have blackouts after drinking or using drugs?
- Do you wake up confused or depressed after drinking alcohol or taking drugs?
- Have you lost interest in hobbies, friends or your personal appearance?
- Do you think about drugs or alcohol when you're not using them?
- Have you unsuccessfully tried to stop drinking or taking drugs?
If you've answered yes to some of these, it's likely that you're addicted to drugs or alcohol.
Your next step is deciding to make the change. Quitting drugs or alcohol will mean making many changes. You may have to reassess how you handle stress and problems, who are your friends, and analyze how you spend your free time.
