Addictions are seldom solved and overcome in isolation. Awareness is the key to change, for without awareness, no change will ever take place. If you refuse to let the light of awareness shine through the daily fog of your addiction, then there can be no hope because the path you have chosen - and I stress YOU for it is your choice and not that of your particular drug/s of favour - is ultimate oblivion through an ignominious and often painful death.
Once you eventually begin listening to the warning signals your body has been continually sending you, then you have within your grasp the spark of hope that - with disciplined effort and the right chosen direction - could just present to you the life you once used to dream about.
Awareness that your addiction problem is isolating you and creating sensations of uneasiness and often depression and fear, you realise just how out of control and how self-fuelling the entire process is.
Shame and guilt can often lead you into a state of shut-down, where your sense of reality is so grotesquely drug-distorted that you either take a stand of some sort or you submit totally to the habit that has become your master. It's decision time - what to do?

In life you are either contributing to or contaminating every situation and circumstance in which you are involved #addiction
