If you are someone who has the habit of going to a store and buying a lot of stuff without control, if you are someone who takes more jobs than what you can do, if you commit to doing more than what you can afford, then understand what losing control means.
Drug addiction also happens when you lose control over the habit of saying no. Well, no one is perfect. All of us are exposed to drugs, every one around have the opportunity to get used to drugs, everyone of us have the option to do drugs, who does not want pleasure? All of us want pleasure.
The pleasure of doing drugs and enjoying the insanity is lustfully lovable, but since the disadvantages of the pleasure are more than the advantage of the pleasure, it is ethical and best to say no.
Those who do not act on their desire to do drugs come out as winners and those who act on the desire to do drugs become addicts.
The act of being sober does not mean that you do not feel tempted about doing drugs; however, it is about being tempted, but you respond with self-control. You say no. This is also the case with those in to relapse.
Those who are getting urges of relapse need to know that it is quiet natural and all they have to do is to learn how to say no. It is very easy to give up to vulnerable situations; however, escaping the vulnerability requires conditioning of behavior. Indeed, your overall behavior should be analyzed, listed, flaws pointed out and rectified.
De-addiction is a process of disciplining yourself. Disciplined from the attitude to do drugs, your quality of life style gets better with a job where you can perform without clutter, organize a routine for your life and live at peace.
