Addictions can ruin lives. Whether you’re hooked on drugs, alcohol or gambling, these harmful habits can wreck your life. The damage affects every aspect of your life. Your health deteriorates, it fills your mind with negative thoughts, and your relationships suffer. Hence, it also affects the lives of people around you—those who love you and worry about your welfare.
In most cases of addiction, the attempt of family and friends to help an addict to overcome their problem doesn’t work. Their good intentions might even be met with hostility. The anger stems from denial and the addict’s belief that their condition is not severe. Moreover, they feel confident about overcoming their situation without anyone’s help. It can be frustrating when a loved one suffering from addiction takes this stance.
People often feel powerless trying to help a loved one get over their addiction. Likewise, an addict can feel hopeless about their chances of getting over their addiction. If you think this way, then it may be time to reach out for help. The psychologists at Life Resolutions Essendon are qualified to extend assistance in these situations.
