In December 2005 I went to rehab for 6 months because I was drinking myself to death.
At the end I was merely existing and the power of addiction had totally taken over. It was horrible, a living nightmare in fact for both myself and those closest to me.
The last few months saw me getting arrested, sectioned and hospitalised... all more than once and I had alcoholic psychosis which I cant even begin to describe.
Lets just say it was like being in a real-life horror movie.
And life was bad... REALLY bad!
You see the thing was I had a lot of pride and I didnt want to admit that...
a.) I had a problem and
b.) that I needed help
And this is the main issue most of us fall victim to.
We see 'asking for help' as a weakness... and we believe that we can and that we should be able to sort everything out by ourselves.
But we cant!
And the reality is that we all need help on some level.
In the end I did ask for help but only when I had hit my final rock bottom...
...and luckily I had a moment of clarity and I realised that doing what I was doing would kill me and quite soon and actually I didnt want to die.
My CHOICES were very simple!
Carry on doing what I was doing and I would die, or stop and live!
It sounds ridiculously simple when you put it like that, but when your decision making process is clouded with drink and you are living in a highly stressed state all the time then you make decisions influenced directly by them.
You might be thinking. 'What the hell has this got to do with me, I dont even drink!'
Well I didnt actaully have a 'drinking' problem, I had a 'thinking' problem.
And its your attitude, thinking and behaviour that keep you where you are in life or can take you where you want to go.
And where we get to in life is all down to the the CHOICES that we make.
Your best thinking got you to where you are now.
Consider that statement for a moment!
Are you where you want to be?
Well I can help you get there whether you just need a little guidance to 'nail it' and start living your most successful self everyday...
...or if you are miles off course despite doing 'all the right things' and really need some guidance!
