Admitting that you have a very serious problem is one of the hardest things to do in life. Telling someone close to you that you’re sorry for ruining his or her life because of your compulsive and abusive behavior is also extremely difficult. The conundrum of telling someone close to you that you have been harboring a big secret for a long, long time is quite complex. The longer you put off confiding in someone, the more difficult it becomes to open up.
And as time wears on, you stay close to the bottle or you waste hard-earned wages that should have been put to good and responsible domestic use on drugs that are all illegal and dangerous anyhow. You don’t need to prolong the agony and pain anymore. Yes, it is difficult to talk and open up. It is still difficult to approach anyone directly for counseling. Invariably, online substance abuse classes are recommended by drug or alcohol addicts’ therapists.
They are also ordered by the courts, especially in cases where road rage incidents and accidents have occurred. In these scenarios, you find that the guilty party was intoxicated well above the legally allowed limits for alcohol consumption before driving. Worse still, there are those who are caught red handed by the law under the influenced of banned substances which, quite naturally, impact on their ability to function normally and behave in a rational and tolerant manner.
By the time you have completed your first course, you will be feeling so much better. One of the good lessons that you will be taught will be to say sorry to those you have hurt or offended. The result of getting that load off of your shoulders will be quite enriching.
