Dry drunk syndrome is a term coined by the creator of Alcoholics Anonymous to describe someone who has quit drinking but hasn’t dealt with the issues that caused them to become addicted in the first place.‌

Dry drunk syndrome can be a sign that you are close to relapsing. Recovery is an ongoing life-long process.  Recovery including a higher power, the steps, and the fellowship can be the cure to your Dry Drunk Syndrome

Progression of Alcoholism – Recovered 1224

150 150 Mark S

No one becomes addicted to substances overnight. You don’t catch it the way you do the common cold. Tonight we talk about the stages and signs of our disease.

 

The Pre-Alcoholic Stage is very similar to casual and social drinking. Slowly but surely, the drinker begins turning to alcohol to reduce stress. 

 

Early-Stage Alcoholism is a time where you will begin to lie to yourself and loved ones about drinking habits. The temptation to drink is regularly there.

 

The Middle Alcoholic Phase is when you may start missing social occasions, withdrawing yourself from situations that don’t include drinking or missing work. Physical changes to your weight and complexion are likely to be coupled with personality changes.

 

At End-Stage Alcoholism, drinking is a dependence. Abusers will drink every day, throughout the day, and struggle to function without alcohol. At this phase, interventions are necessary.

Tonight, we talk about the Progression of Alcoholism.

Acceptance – Recovered 1222

150 150 Mark S

Acceptance is an opening of your heart to the realities of life and to the ways in which you have been impacted by your life choices. It means you don’t fight against the realities of your life, but accept them for what they are and use them to grow as a person and move forward in life. It’s a major part of becoming a better person emotionally and spiritually and it can serve as a huge boost in recovery.

Just think of acceptance as a way to forgive yourself for the problems caused by your alcoholism. You’ll no longer be agonizing over the mistakes you made, the people you hurt, and the so-called failures that you feel were caused by your addiction. With acceptance, you can forgive yourself for these concerns and heal your heart.

Tonight, we talk about Acceptance.
