It’s Euro Football Time – Surely “one drink” is ok?

The UK and Europe are watching football. It’s an exciting time for those football fans and supporters.
They love the game and all those BBQ’s and family gatherings with friend’s are a must. No one wants to
be left out.

For those with a drink problem, it’s a bad time. Imagine the person struggling with alcohol – wanting to
mix with family and friends at that BBQ – friends or family being a little intoxicated and then the problem
– “Surely one drink won’t hurt you”!!

The fact is – if you are an alcoholic and are choosing to live in sobriety – that first drink will start the
addictive cycle of again. For an alcoholic “One is too many and a thousand never enough”. Once someone
with a drink problem has that first drink – there will be a second and a third and then it’s like the old
times. That person goes back to old drinking ways faster than you can imagine. This is so hard for
friends and family to understand – they probably don’t have a drink problem – they don’t understand that
one drink will equal chaos to the alcoholic.

This is not just true of people with alcohol problems – all addictions are the same.
Alcohol, Drugs, Gambling, Food, Sex, Pornography, Relationship and Co-dependency are all the same.
For people with an Addictive Personality, we all have the problem. No matter what the drug of choice

Alcohol Treatment Hampshire

At the bottom of alcohol dependency, there is always pain. Discovering the pain and healing it is part of breaking the cycle.

Because this drug (and it is a drug) is widely accepted by society, we get the idea that it isn’t dangerous. Unfortunately this simply isn’t true. Many people who aren’t susceptible to addiction, can drink socially without developing dependency. But when someone is addicted to alcohol, it is the most toxic and potent of any drug.

Alcoholism isn’t just bad for your health, it wracks havoc on your relationships, career and prospects.

Here at Addiction Care, this is one of the most common addictions we deal with.

The cycle of addiction is difficult to break. But we can help you break free from this cycle. If you feel you have a problem, you’ve already reached the first step towards recovery. One of the hardest things to do with any addiction is admit you have a problem. If other people round you have regularly criticised your drinking, it might hurt. But this is often a sign that you need to change.

When you feel ready to make that change, simply get in contact. We look forward to hearing from you. Based in Guildford, we are ideal for those in Hampshire and Surrey.
