Once you’ve crossed the line into alcoholism, you can’t go back.
Practically speaking, that means that it won’t be safe for you to start drinking again. Once you’ve given alcohol up, that’s it. You won’t ever be “cured” in the sense that you can drink like some people do—a glass here and there, no big deal.
But there’s another way to look at giving up drinking. You can be cured in the sense that you can get your life back. You can chase your dreams. Fall in love. Get your degree. Compose music. Land the job you always wanted. Take up painting. Give back to the world around you.
How Can Alcoholism Be Treated?
Although alcohol may strike some as less dangerous than hard drugs like cocaine or heroin, the withdrawal from alcohol can be severe and even life threatening. For that reason, it’s critical to seek professional help.
At a good treatment center, you’ll be taken care of not just physically, but also psychologically. The goal isn’t just to quit drinking. It’s to find out how alcohol became such a big part of your life—and then resolve those issues.
