REPLACING ADDICTION WITH
Replacing Addiction with Attachments
Treatment centers in Palm Beach
In order for someone to overcome an addiction, you need motivation, courage
and the right tools to get you through this crucial time. First, you need
motivation to get up and get over it. It takes 21 days to form a habit, therefore it
takes that same amount of time to break one. If you’re going to overcome an
addiction, you need to have the motivation to get started and to stay on the right
path. One day sets you back months, so you need to ask yourself, “Is this worth
it?”. The next element needed is courage. If you don’t stand the test of being
strong, it will be easier for you to relapse. Tell your addiction, it’s you or me. You
have to be strong enough to say, you’re worth the effort to break this habit. Be
brave to stand up to it. Courage leads to strength. You need to be stronger than
you’ve ever had to be before. Stay strong and watch the world get out of your
way. The last thing you need is tools to help you get through each day. Here are a
few tools to keep in your back pocket to help you turn your addiction into an
attachment that you can overcome.

First change your thinking. Anyone can become addicted to anything at any time.
You’re no different. By thinking of addiction as more of an attachment it’s easier
to maneuver. If you were addicted to, let say, rolled tacos, if you found something
to replace those delicious rolled tacos that was just as satisfying and perhaps
even better it would be easy to stop eating rolled tacos.
Replace old crowds with new ones. We all know that the influence of other users
and abusers is very difficult to overcome. By finding positive nonuser friends
and groups to attach to, you’re now placing the strength back into your own
hands. The more you hang out with people that have similar attachments, the
harder it is to break free from the attachment.
Which came first the addiction or the illness? Many people out there develop or
discover that they are suffering from mental illnesses. Almost all of these
illnesses are treatable. It’s not uncommon to find that people suffer from both
illness and addiction. Most therapists will recommend that getting your illness
under control by a healthcare practitioner is key to getting the addiction under
control. Once you’ve become routine for managing your health, you can seek
alternatives to your poison whether that’s drugs, alcohol or both.

Be careful for addictions that come from medications. If you’re attached to
something the doc has prescribed, then get a second opinion and let them know
that you are in a fight to overcome this attachment and you don’t want to get
attached to something that could be worse. By being upfront with your physician
or psychologist you are in control, not them. Remember one pill can lead to a
lifetime of med attachments.
Get into and stay in treatment. This is key to your survival. Eventually you’ll
break the habit of the addiction and it will allow you to be free from the path that
you’ve been on. Find a good counselor. Many people find that attaching to a
higher power gives them the strength but also the forgiveness they’ve needed for
years to break the chains of addiction.
Have the “Drive to Survive”! You can do this and it’s your choice if you want to
make it or not. Ask yourself what you’re getting out of attaching to your drug of
choice. Are you trying to feel better? Are you trying to avoid your parents or
some other stress? Have you gone through a major life altering situation?
“Whatever the mind can conceive, it can achieve” so remember that by telling
yourself you’ll get through this, find positive attachments to replace the drugs or
the activity that’s causing your life to be out of control.
If you’re attached to the fun of partying, then find a new hobby that will be more
beneficial to you and those around you. No matter what your situation, your past,
your present these are all things that you can find solutions to.
