You could possibly believe that you only drink because you’re really having a very good time and it’s the only way you know how to have fun. Or the next thing you might tell yourself is that you had a stressful day and you deserve to kick back and relax and having some drinks is going to be the best way to do that.

Some examples of benefits of not drinking alcohol are that you will definitely be able to improve your relationships. You will feel a lot better physically, and you’ll also even feel a lot less stressed out so you’ll feel better mentally as well. You’ll be able to do a lot of the activities that you stopped doing once drinking took over your life, so you’ll be able to spend more time with people that you care about.

Some examples of the costs of drinking are that drinking has caused major troubles in a lot of your relationships. Drinking makes you feel really ashamed of the things you do while you are drunk. It makes you feel anxious and it is also a depressant so it obviously makes you feel depressed as well. Drinking can also put your job in jeopardy and make you ignore the responsibilities that you have.

Some of the costs of not drinking are that you’ll have to learn how to deal with your problems sober. You will not be able to hang out with any of your friends that you used to drink with. You’re going to have to finally face the responsibilities that you’ve been ignoring for potentially years at this point.

Joining a Recovery Treatment Program?

I know that most people claim that you should immediately get into some kind of a recovery program, or that you should at least go to Alcoholics Anonymous. I personally say that you should join up with each and every one of these organizations if you don’t feel like you’ll be able to do it on your own. Or, if you believe you’ll be able to do it on your own but you just haven’t been capable of doing it so far, then it’s probably a good idea to seek out the help of others because you obviously need it.

So judge to the best of your ability whether you need to get into some kind of alcoholism recovery program. I am all for it and they are great programs and they obviously work, but I just don’t believe that every single person needs them in order to kick their addiction.
