Addicts will also put off necessities for getting high. In their mind getting high is the most important necessity that they have. Food will be an after thought and sleeping will be nearly impossible if they are going through withdrawals. This causes the addict to have severe physical problems on top of what the foreign substance is doing to their bodies. This behavior causes the addict to eventually feel worse about themselves, and it becomes easier for them to hurt themselves by getting high and neglecting their responsibilities.
Getting addiction treatment can be the only way for most addicts to ever have a chance of quitting drugs or alcohol. Unfortunately many addicts have to hit rock bottom for them to truly see the seriousness of their situation and truly make a change from the bottom of their heart. If they are not fully and aggressively dedicated to staying clean and sober, they will not kick the habit for good because reminders, temptations and cravings will most certainly come back at them many times.
When a person has truly realized that they are completely out of control of their lives, alcohol and drug treatment may be a good option for them, but if they have any doubts about needing treatment it may not work. It really comes down to the addict’s drive in life to keep themselves sober.
