What You Wish You’d Known Earlier

We’ve all heard “hindsight is 20/20,” and it’s true. Looking back with the knowledge you have now, you may feel ashamed at the way you previously thought and behaved. You, however, might still be stuck in the middle. If so, you don’t have access to hindsight yet. Villa Tranquil Recovery is here to help sharpen your sight so you don’t have to look back and be ashamed of your past actions. Here are some things you’ll probably wish you knew sooner:

  • Drinking or using doesn’t make you a better, more fun person

Whether it’s drugs or alcohol, using doesn’t enhance your personality. You aren’t more fun when you’re high or drunk. You aren’t better when you’re drinking or using. Allow yourself space from your drug of choice to realize that who you are is separate from what you’re doing.

  • Using doesn’t add to your life, only subtracts from it

You may think that you are able to get certain things when you’ve fallen back on the comfort of drugs or alcohol, but when you’re under the influence, you cannot see all the things you may be losing: friends, family, money, your career. The little bit that isn’t suffering takes away greatly from the good in your life.

  • Using will not give you the happiness you are craving

Happiness comes from deep inside of you, not from outside sources like drugs or alcohol. You will not find happiness at the bottom of the bottle, no matter how hard you try. Instead, put it down and do something healthy that will create genuine happiness, not just a few moments of relief. 

  • Drinking or using will cloud your judgment

It is impossible to make good judgments when you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. You will be unable to make informed and safe decisions that will benefit you. Your judgement is clouded so much so that you don’t know what is good for you. Allow yourself to make your own choices.
