This week begins a new year and, for many alcoholics and addicts the holiday season has been rough. They have burned more bridges with their families, missed precious moments with loved ones. Maybe the alcoholic or addict we are talking about is you and you don’t want it to be for one more day.
It doesn’t have to be. You can get alcohol addiction help. You don’t have to remain trapped in the same cycles for the rest of your life or even another moment. Even one of the many brief 30 day rehab programs can set you on your way to a new you and a truly new life in 2012. For alcoholics and addicts, the holiday season can be especially tough, particularly when we go to parties and attempt to be festive with friends and family, getting into the holiday spirit and trying to control our drinking so as not to embarrass ourselves, cause any hurt feelings or say and do things we might later regret. Waking up in the morning knowing that there are people we love who are upset with us can be pure torture for the alcoholic addict as it is seldom the thing that we intended to do. Some alcoholics who have well learned the lesson that they cannot control their drinking at parties choose to stay home, making up reasons they can’t attend and, instead, staying away from festive holiday gatherings with loved ones.
Maybe that was your story this year, but it doesn’t have to be the same thing over and over again. Getting alcohol addiction help in California rehab centers doesn’t have to be expensive. There are so many rehabs that take insurance and are waiting to help you on the road to your new life in the new year.
