The Power of Acceptance: Embracing Change for a Brighter Future
You mayhearthe saying that the only outcome for those suffering from addiction is jail, institution, or death. That can notpossibly apply to you, can it?

Perhaps you’ve only just begun wondering if you’ve got a problem. You’re not sure because you don’t have any health problems or legal trouble – YET. (You’re eligible, too.) Or, maybe you don’t think your daily alcohol or drug habit is anything more than a little indulgence. You enjoy it on your own time. You deserve drinksbecause you work so hard. Unwinding needs some lubrication.
If the time has come that you need a drink more than you want it, you’ve crossed the line from social drinking to addiction.
However,when youcross the line between social drinking/smoking to addiction, the want for alcohol and drugs becomes a need. At this point you understand what we mean when we say Prison of Addiction.Your weekend marijuana use on Saturday and Sundaycreeps into Friday through Monday. You might bedealing with cravings. When you switch from vintage chardonnay to box wine, you might be flirting with compulsion. When you drink or use drugs for the effect rather than simply enjoying their taste and the healthy social aspect, you are most likely struggling with addiction.
