Help Someone Overcome Addiction by Controlling Your Emotions

Posted under Addiction Help

A common thing among drug addicts and alcoholics is a feeling of shame. And the worse you feel about yourself, the harder it is to change. Someone who feels bad about themselves is less likely to agree to get help with their addiction.

Most people know when they’re hurting others, and they don’t take any joy in it. They take joy in being responsible for their lives, doing well in life, and making themselves and others happy – none of which is really being done by addicts, even those who have a lot of money to pay others to take care of things for them.

So … when someone is addicted to drugs or alcohol, and especially when it’s causing trouble in the lives of others that they care about or making them worry, their self-esteem is at rock bottom.

Have you ever tried to make positive changes in your life when you feel like worthless? It is almost impossible. more…

But there are so many people who have everything going for them and seem to live a happy life that are also doing drugs, it really makes you wonder what it’s all about.

Often, the biggest reason people get addicted is because they tried the drug in the first place. How does that work? more…
