If it’s bad now,it’s going to get worse. Alcoholism and addiction don’t go away on their own;some people can get better without professional help(although most addicts do need treatment) but no one gets better without a commitment to change.
If you or a loved one wonders about the need for treatment,look at the past to see the future. If you can see that things are getting worse, then your are dealing with an addiction and you can bet the farm that if changes aren’t made, things will continue to get worse.
Treatment works,but sooner is better than later,always.If there is a problem now, it’s going to be worse next year, and treatment will be more challenging next year. You can’t wish it away, but you can take action to reclaim health and happiness.
No one ever needs to hit bottom. It’s suffering for nothing,and a tragic waste of time.
