Dax Shepard Reveals Relapse After 16 Years of Sobriety
An outspoken advocate for those recovering from addiction, Dax Shepard has been an inspiration to...
One day you will be so far removed from your detox experience that it will be hard for you to recall the discomfort.
As with most things in life, the brain is profoundly capable of forgetting the things that hurt us physically. This is the good news. That one day, in your recovery, you will try to remember exactly how it felt sitting in detox and you will know that it was unpleasant but the true pain of that emotional and spiritual emptiness will be a distant memory. You will wake up in the mornings and feel a deep sense of purpose and serenity. You will have the freedom to choose whatever you want to do each and every day. You will hear birds chirping and see the sun rising and it will make you feel peace. You won’t be inclined to cover your windows, you won’t have to reach for Advil or a drink to get up, you won’t be sweating, you won’t be shaking. You will have the life you wish you did if only you could overcome your addiction or alcoholism. It is beautiful. It is everything. It is the future all of us hope for.
So, what’s the bad news? You have to go through detox in order to break free from the cage your addiction has put you in. Like most things in life, they are hard before they are easy. We aren’t going to pretend like detox isn’t hard here. We know it is difficult, we know that if you are here, the path you have traveled has not been easy.
Fortunately, in today’s ultra-modern world the experience of detox is not something you have to avoid at all costs. And if you are sitting here reading this today, wondering about detox, that is probably what you have been doing up until this point; avoiding detox at all costs. What is the avoidance costing you? Your health, your family, your friends, your emotional well-being, your ability to hold down a job. Every day that you continue on you’re risking jail, risking your life and risking your ability to find happiness and peace for yourself in this lifetime. We don’t need to tell you that though and we aren’t here to write a lecture on all the consequences our addiction has afforded us.
We are here to describe for you the detox process. How you can get through it. Why it is necessary, what it entails and if you are ready, which you may or may not be, hold out a helping hand. We believe in a brighter future for you even if you can’t see it for yourself or your loved one right now.
