Alcoholism the 5 phases of recovery which I went through. These are the 5 phase s of my healing after alcoholism. Basically some of landmarks and goals I set myself. All this came to mind one afternoon once I decided this alcoholism was sufficient and I had to get sober. I believe everyone who stops drinking at some point in there life has this cent fall moment and the realised was enough. For me having been living in bed for several weeks and having nearly exhausted every avenue for help. This time was because of me personally.
I detoxed for 7 days before then proceeded into a halfway house. I needed to be sober for 3 -5 days before I had been aloud in this place. (I was intended to say from the video 7 day complete detox then I was transferred into rehab/halfway house - I said 3. It had been 7 full days sober).
Stage 1 - Take Responsibility for yourself and your activities going forward.Make a plan and stick with it and ever look back to start living on the past as your moving through your alcohol recovery. You have to move on with your lifeout of alcoholism and into recovery. Start being selfish. Essentially what that means its ok to be selfish in recovery from alcohol. This moment is for during your alcohol recovery you and no one else make the most of it. This time is only going to come once, so cherish it.
Phase 2 Followed the strategy that I had made to stop drinking alcohol. Never deviate from the strategy. The only person who had been in my manner was me. This will be the exact same for you. Break through this barrier and only do what you have proposed. Try this you will be amazed how successful it is.
Stage 3 - Halfway home and exercise/fitness Once I got myself recognized in my new home I began to concentrate on m fitness and health after alcoholism. This was not too hard to perform believe it or not. They were two people in the alcohol rehabilitation unit which were chefs. So food wise we had anything we wanted. Fundamentally when people used to go to the place. For example a relative. They always used to state something along the lines. This area is like a holiday camp with no alcohol. Or We would state in the UK it like Butlins minus the beer.
You have to start working o your psychological health after alcoholism to sobriety. It will get very confusing having an alcoholic and when you quit drinking fog settles and its only then can you determine what work needs to be done emotionally and physically
Stage 5 - Getting back into society and back to work following alcoholism. Getting yourself back into work and becoming established in a house and apartment on the outside (so to speak) is a bit of a daunting undertaking. To some men and women who had never lived independently or not really had to care for their finances. When you quit drinking and you get sober you want to really work at getting out yourself in society. You need to get out there and begin speaking to people on a daily basis following your alcoholism. This works creators for your mental health when you are sober and on the path to recovery.
