Don't give in to addiction, seek help.

Are you or someone you know suffering from substance abuse and addiction? Life can be very difficult, given the many temptations we have to avoid every day. Its fine to indulge once in a while, but there is a line you
cross where you've had too much. We've all been there and while it might be easy for some to stop, 
others have issues beyond their control. Naturally, we all want to feel good and every one goes about it differently. Some are sucked into an addiction they can't control, because they feel there's no other way out. This in not their fault and there is always a way out.

At Advanced Health and Education in New Jersey, you will find treatment for alcoholism and many 
other forms of substance abuse. Their team of addiction specialists have helped people resume happy 
healthy lives for 40 years.Addiction will no longer control you and you will find new healthy addictions to take their place. If you are suffering from drug or alcohol dependence, know that you are not alone and there is always somewhere and someone that wants to help. All you have to do is ask for it.

Signs of addiction to look out for: 

• Irritability 
• Sweating 
• Shaking
• Restlessness
• Insomnia
• Major relationship problems
• Anger
• Confusion 
• Aggressive behavior
• Risky behavior, especially to acquire the substance.
• Loss of hope, depression
• Anxiety
• Feeling sick and nauseated

If you feel this way on a constant basis and it does not subside until you have had your substance fix, you 
are fighting an addiction and it's not your fault. Many issues contribute to falling into addiction. If you want 
to get help, you need drug rehab centers to get to the bottom of the cause. 

If it isn't you but someone you know who you witness these symptoms in, get them help. Talk to them 
about what they are doing to themselves, but most importantly do it in a calm and non-aggressive, non-patronizing  manner. Let them know you care about them and that you only want the best, to keep them from feeling threatened. That is the last thing a person with addiction needs to deal with. 

Stay beautiful inside and out, don't let addiction take over your mind and body.

  1. I have a brother who has been an alcoholic for as long as I can remember. You don't know how bad I wish I could send him somewhere for some help, but he refuses. He has yet to admit he has a problem. Thanks for the info though!
