Quitting alcohol or opioids is no cakewalk. These are two of the most difficult mind-altering substances to give up. This is because the withdrawal process is so unbearable. Many people have a sincere desire to quit drinking or drugging, but they simply can’t do it because they know what will happen when they stop.

Unlike illegal drugs, the consumption of alcohol is considered socially acceptable, making it difficult for many to understand the dangers involved. Alcohol is served at celebrations and considered a pastime for many. Most people don’t realize it, but alcohol is a highly addictive substance.

When you first get into recovery from an addiction to drugs or alcohol, all you can really focus on is staying sober. This is totally normal and appropriate. Reorienting yourself so that you are no longer driven by the compulsion to get high or drunk is a lot of work. In fact, it’s downright exhausting.
