Alcoholics drink for many reasons. They all know that they cannot have even just one drink. It is that one, first drink that always gets them into trouble, and it always gets them started drinking all over again. Here are the top five reasons why an alcoholic needs that first drink.
Alcoholics always need to take that first drink even knowing that it will always get them into trouble. Alcoholics know that they need to quit drinking forever and that they can never have even just one drink ever again.
Alcoholics always reason with themselves about how just one drink will be alright. Many times, alcoholics will drink just because they enjoy the taste. They really do not mean any harm.
Once they have that one drink, they just cannot stop drinking. Not thinking clearly, they will allow themselves just one more and then one more until they are drunk again.
Alcoholics always need to take that first drink, because they enjoy the feeling that they get from drinking. They just want to feel good for a while. They really do not mean any harm to anyone. Alcoholics want to feel that buzz they get from drinking. They want to feel their stress just melt away.
Alcoholics need to realize that they can feel good in countless other ways. They really do not need to take that first drink to feel good. Alcoholics need to forget that feeling of having a buzz, and they can get that stress relieving feeling by many other means, such as exercising. Exercise is a great stress reliever.
An alcoholic will always need to take that first drink, because they want to be happy. They want to have fun. Alcoholics want to celebrate every day whether it is a holiday or not. They want to celebrate whether it is a weekend or not.
Alcoholics need to learn that the only way that they will ever be able to have fun again is to stop drinking. They need to realize that drinking is no longer any fun once they get caught drinking again.
The only thing that drinking does for an alcoholic is it ruins their whole day, everyday, or every time that they decide that they need to have even just one more drink.
Alcoholics will always need to take that first drink, because they are alone. They think that no one will ever even find out. Alcoholics always get caught, though, because that one drink always leads to another and again another.
Alcoholics feel that having just one drink while they are alone will not hurt anyone, but it really does. Alcoholics who continue to drink are hurting themselves. They are hurting those people who are around them, as well.
Alcoholics cannot hide their drinking. It shows by their behavior, and people who go near them can always smell that they have been drinking again.
An alcoholic always needs to take that first drink, because they really do not want to quit drinking. They really enjoy drinking. They enjoy the taste, the feeling they get, and think they can hide it from others. Alcoholics think that they can somehow train themselves to have only one drink rather than quit.
This simply is not so. Alcoholics need to just plain quit drinking forever. There is no such thing as just one drink for an alcoholic. Their reasons for drinking just do not matter. They are all just excuses for having that one more drink. Only one.
There is plenty of free help for alcoholics, but first they need to realize that they are an alcoholic and admit it.
