As someone ready to break the cycle of addiction, do any of these sound familiar?
You’re successful at what you do and used to solving problems that come your way—but with this, it’s different. You’re an intelligent and competent person, but for some reason, there’s no logical way to make sense of why this cycle keeps repeating. You’re stuck, and it’s frustrating to try different paths only to eventually find yourself back where you started.
You love the ones closest to you, yet feel unheard or misunderstood when trying to explain exactly what’s going on. It feels like you’re speaking a different language when communicating your thoughts and feelings to the most important people in your life. Despite your best efforts, tension is building at home or work, adding to mounting feelings of separation and isolation.
Things were going fine, and then, out of the blue, something happened and life just hasn’t been the same since—you just can’t seem to get back on track. All of us encounter life’s heartbreaks…unfortunately, we’re not all provided with the healthiest ways of dealing with them. For whatever reason, you just haven’t been able to put difficult times behind you and move forward. Being stuck in this place is exhausting.
You’re being called “weak” or “lazy” because you’ve failed to “just stop this” pattern of behavior. While you may be good at calling upon your deepest reserves when making changes, you eventually return to the same old ways. Willpower and self-control only take you so far…and eventually run out.
Maybe this is the first time you’re entertaining the notion that you have a problem. And the prospect of you actually being “an addict” leaves you feeling overwhelmed. Or…maybe you’ve tried to tackle this problem before. And now, going back leaves you feeling alone, guilty, fearful or stuck. Either way, you know you need help, yet are frustrated that you can’t find an approach that meets you where you are and lays out a clear path.
