Steps to Take to Avoid Addiction or to Get Away from Addiction

First, you can take many steps to avoid addiction or to at least get away from addiction. For instance, you can stay away from people who drink or use drugs, you can isolate yourself from those who are poor influences on your character and you can do your best to keep drugs and alcohol out of your life all together.

You can also take psychological steps to avoid addiction or to get away from an addiction that you are already suffering from. It’s important that you don’t ignore your feelings because often times, its emotions that lead to addiction and that fuel the fire once addiction is a problem in life. If you can’t face the feelings that you are having or if you’re trying to mask emotions in some manner by using drugs or alcohol, now is the time to resolve to STOP!

Having fun is also important both in regular day to day life and in recovery. You’ll quickly realize that staying sober and maintaining recovery may take some work but that’s ok. You just need to be ready to counteract all of your hard work and efforts with some fun times too. Drug and alcohol use is not fun, make sure you don’t fall victim to the idiosyncrasies that believe that drugs and alcohol must be involved in order to have fun.
