Good afternoon! My name is Lauren, and I’m a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. For the longest time, I made up excuses for why I wouldn’t go to treatment, or why I didn’t need to get sober. I said I didn’t really have a problem, or other people drank more than I did, or work wouldn’t be able to get function without me, or how would the children survive without their mom?
Well, I finally ended up realizing I needed help, so I went. Work got along without me, my children are still alive today, and the world is still spinning, so I think everything turned out okay. If you want something bad enough, you will find a way to make it happen. If you really want to get clean or sober bad enough, you will find a way to do it. If you need to get somewhere, to a friend’s that is willing to help you out—if you want it bad enough, you will make it happen.
Quit making excuses, and do something about it. Actions speak louder than words. You can tell me all day long what you want to do or what you are planning on doing, but until there is some action behind those words, they mean nothing. That’s all I have for today. Have a great one!
