Alcohol can create dependencies that are difficult for recovering alcoholics to control by themselves. Additional support is needed, along with possible medication.


Alcohol Addiction

Recovering alcoholics continue to fight their dependencies and the urge to drink for as long as they live. Each and every day is a battle for sobriety.

Recovering from alcoholism is not an easy task to do. The most important advice I can give is to be completely aware of what situations you are putting yourself in. If you know you may be around people or places that could tempt you, then remove yourself. Learn from your mistakes and be honest with yourself on what you think may cause a relapse. In the end, the greatest threat to your alcoholism is temptation.
