How to Find Hope?

In active addiction, hope is difficult to find for anyone who is affected by its grip. If your  loved one is an addict or alcoholic, the pain of watching drugs or alcohol slowly kill them leaves you holding onto nothing in the way of hope. If it is you who is struggling with addiction, you most likely gave up hope that you could ever get better. This is what addiction does; it destroys relationships, shatters lives, and smashes any promise of a brighter future. All of this is true, but what is also true is that recovery is possible—for anyone.

No matter where you are physically and mentally, there is the promise of change. Whether or not we feel it, we are in a constant state of change and so is our place within the universe. Just like we cannot change the past, we also cannot predict the future. What we can do, is live in the present and practice acceptance of that which we have no control over: people, places, and things. As a loved one of an addict or alcoholic, you have to live your own life. You have no control over the disease of addiction.

As an addict or alcoholic, when you can accept that you have no control over your disease, there is hope. Why? Because you no longer have to fight the losing battle. Surrendering control and becoming willing to treat your disease is nothing short of a miracle. This simple yet powerful admission can change your life. With a phone call and a few minutes, your entire future can turn in a different direction. Help is here if you want it.

Recovery happens for people every single day, and today is no different. Regardless of where a person is in their disease, there is hope of them never living addicted again. Every single addict and alcoholic has a chance to live free from the bondage of self. We do recover, and we recover together. Addiction is a family disease, and if we hold onto the hope of healing, we can get through it, one day at a time.
