Can You Quit Using Drugs or Alcohol by Yourself?
Addiction is a progressive disease that never stays the same or gets better - it only gets worse! Even if a person stops abusing substances for several years and then starts using drugs or alcohol again, the progressive nature of the disease picks up right where the person left off. Despite the many misconceptions about addiction, nobody is a hooked on drugs by mere choice. Sure, decisions to use drugs might have led to addiction, but people who are addicted aren't typically able to stop using automatically.
As a person loses control of their life, the consequences can be heart-breaking. Relationships, finances, and health can deteriorate or be lost altogether. It may be easy to say, "Why don't you just stop using!" Even people who are addicted to drugs and alcohol believe they can stop on their own strength if they gather up the willpower. This belief largely comes from the common societal attitude that addiction is a matter of choice. As an addicted person sees their family, friends and peers live happy, healthy, and productive lives without being addicted to drugs or alcohol; the addicted person believes that he/she should be capable of doing the same. Truthfully, 95% of people who become addicted need professional help to stop. Why?
Addiction is a Disease of the Brain
Addiction is a disease of the brain. Very few people are capable of overriding their brain's survival mechanisms. An addicted brain, no matter how toxic the substance it has come to depend on might be, relies on the substance it's addicted to for survival much the same way the brain relies on food, water, sleep, and oxygen for survival. Therefore, for the overwhelming majority of people, the battle against the brain is one that can not be won.
