Millions of people around the world are looking ahead to 2014 and deciding what things they want to accomplish or change in their lives. Many people have New Year’s resolutions for things such as exercising more and losing weight, eating better, spending more time with family or earning more money.
Sometimes people are blocked from following through with any of their resolutions because of their substance abuse problems, while other times their lives are being utterly destroyed by addiction. For anyone caught in the spectrum of drug or alcohol abuse, there is no better time than now to get the year started off on the right foot.
The fact of the matter is that life cannot be firing on all cylinders when an alcohol or drug problem is present – one or more areas suffer when someone is seeking refuge from an outside substance. All too often someone who is abusing drugs may think that things are fine, but in reality they’re spiraling out of their control. Substance abuse causes marital problems and other difficulties at home with spouses and children, causes accidents, reduces work performance and costs people their jobs, among many other things.
Make that resolution to live drug-free, or encourage loved ones to do so who may be in need of help.
