Give In to Win

So many addicts and alcoholics believe that if they get sober, they are giving up or failing. What addicts and alcoholics don’t realize, is that they’ve been fighting a losing battle for a long time. No matter what a person tries to do, or thinks will be different, addiction will always win. The only way a person can beat the disease, is if they don’t pick up a drink or a drug, no matter what.

It is said that you must surrender if you want to get clean and sober. Wave the white flag, stop fighting, etc. If you want to roll with these phrases, know that waving the white flag doesn’t mean defeat, it means you are willing to join the winning side. Yes, getting sober is joining the winning side, but you have to know and remember that addiction will beat you every time. Only the lucky ones know and remember this. Any time a drink or a drug sounds like a good idea, if you keep in mind the absolute devastation that will follow, you may just make it.

The delusion of all addicts and alcoholics is that the next time it will be different. This is not, and never has been true. It’s delusional thinking at its finest. The only way picking up a drink or a drug “this time” will be different, is that it will be worse—much worse. Luckily for you, you don’t have to find this out the hard way. Take a good, honest look at yourself, and ask the question, “Am I giving in, or trying something new?” If you want your life to be different, give in and take a new path. You gave the other direction a solid try and it didn’t work. It’s time to try something new, and see what happens.
