ASK FOR HELP
- June 12, 2018
The time has come for a change in your life. It is time to make a decision based on what is best for you. The feelings of pressure and anxiety have become inexplicable. The way you have been treating your body in the last few months has left you depleted and drained. The mix of party drugs you’ve consumed every weekend is beginning to take its toll. Last weekend you went to the local nightclub to dance with friends. Before entering the club your best friend handed you an ecstasy tablet. This is normal for you as its customary to pop before entering any scene. Within the next two hours you easily went through 4 drinks. While on the dance floor someone offered you a bump of cocaine and you excitedly hurried off to their table to fit in a line. The night was great. At least that is how it felt until you woke up late the next day. Your body felt dehydrated and achy. The headache went away after a few more hours of sleep and a good deal of water. You’ve been doing this almost every weekend for the last year and a half.
You have lost 20 pounds however and have begun to notice that your endurance in the gym has begun to slow down a bit. The motivation to go every day is not as prominent as it once was. Now that you think about it, you have had to miss work a few times on Monday. Recovering on Sunday just wasn’t enough. Does this sound like you? These are common signs of substance abuse. You may not feel addicted or even as though you are doing more than just having fun, however the signs are leading you down a road of denial.
Substance abuse is characterized by engaging in unhealthy drug seeking and using behavior. Initially, it causes harm to your mind and body. With further use, you begin to see changes in important relationships, within finances, and within employment. There is no easy way to admit that you may have a problem. However, it is important to ask for help, especially if you have noticed a pattern of behavior. When you see that there are changes that have occurred in your life that do not improve the quality of wellbeing, it is time to look at the choices you are making.
