On the surface, everything may seem fine. But the effects of alcohol and drugs creep up on us. Things may be starting to happen: problems with your health, mood, or relationships. Maybe you want to make a few changes to improve your life.
The fact that you are here reading this now is a positive first step.
What could be better?
Write a list of a few of the things that are most important to you in your life. Now write down which of those things are in any way affected by your drug or alcohol use. What parts of life could improve by changing your relationship with substances?
If you’ve noticed that your drinking or use of drugs sometimes gets in the way of your relationships — what would it feel like to have the freedom to spend time with your friends or loved ones, doing things you enjoy? If you’ve noticed that it sometimes gets in the way of your work — what would it feel like to be on top of your game? If you’ve noticed your school grades are slipping — what would it feel like to get the results you want?
Now think about what is important to you that might be put at risk by your drinking or drug use — your family, paying rent, graduating from college, your friends, your health, or your career. Imagine you're living exactly as you are now in five years. Is there anything you would like to be different? If so, what would need to happen to make that change?
Getting some help reflects your choice to invest in your health, in the parts of your life that you most value, and the people in it. The time you spend in treatment is a positive part of the process towards freedom and a brighter future.
