An addict’s pride will not let them admit that they have a problem, and if they tell other people that they do, they are just looking for sympathy or trying to convince someone that they understand what is going on with themselves and they will change. If an addict does get to the point where they realize they have lost control of their lives, they will either chose to change it and get help, or they will become completely apathetic. They will not care that they are ruining their lives and they may intentionally or subconsciously even begin to hate themselves. When they hate themselves it will be much easier for them to hurt themselves by continuing to live a depraved lifestyle.
Addicts do not want to consider life without drugs or alcohol. Of course they want to have a stable life with a job and a family, but they tell themselves that they could never really have as much fun or enjoy themselves as much if they stay sober, so their dreams and aspirations take a back seat to getting high. Unless they get alcohol drug addiction treatment, the addict will slip further and further into addiction. Once they have ruined so many opportunities, an addict may just accept their fate and continue on the path of destruction. Until they are able to see that they can always turn their life around while they have breath in their lungs, they will feel down and depressed.
