Don’t Wait Until After the Holidays

If you or someone you love needs treatment for alcohol or drug addiction, the right time is always now.

It is easy to find reasons to postpone what needs to be done.

“I know I need help. I will get treatment, but I want to wait until after the holidays.” Is this an excuse that you have heard? Or is it one that you have used yourself?

Maybe you have heard a smoker say something like, I’m going to quit smoking after ____________, and then comes the hundred and one reasons why it must be later.  Reasons like,

  • “after things are less stressful at work,”
  • “when my spouse stops smoking too,”
  • “when the kids go back to school,” or
  • “after I get through these medical tests,” etc.

The list of reasons why it can’t happen now goes on and on.

Human nature makes us want to postpone what we know might be uncomfortable, or something that we are a little afraid of.  It always seems that it will be easier in the future, but the truth is that the best time isn’t in the future, it’s right now.

Here’s another one,

“I want to spend this holiday with my kids (or my parents, or with the rest of the family, or with the friends I rarely get to see).”

See how the excuses can seem so reasonable, so compelling.  The basic truth is there is no greater gift you can give those people you care about than to seek and reclaim a sober healthy lifestyle.

Another truth about the holidays is that they are often a stressful time for people as they attempt to make it perfect like the ones on the Hallmark Channel. Life isn’t like the Hallmark Channel and holidays are rarely, if ever, perfect.

Add alcohol or other substances to the holiday celebration, along with stress and short tempers, and sometimes the fireworks don’t wait for the New Year, they happen in the living room.  For someone struggling with addiction, this can be a recipe for disaster.

How would it feel, instead of putting it off until after the holidays, if you made the choice to take the first step to recovery today?  How would it feel to know that your last holiday season with addiction was already behind you and that this holiday season is the beginning of all the rest of the happy, healthy, sober holidays of your life?  You can make that decision, and it can be today!

Don’t wait until after the holidays, Gulf Breeze Recovery is a holistic, non-12-step, substance abuse treatment program that focuses not only on helping individuals achieve sobriety, but also helping them begin a healthy, happy lifestyle.
