“He often finds himself faced by the same problems and situations, and seeing these difficult situations return, he grows depressed, thinking that he is incapable of making any progress in life.
“I’ve been through this all before,” he says to his heart.
“Yes, you have been through all this before,” replies his heart. “But you have never been beyond it.”
Then the Warrior realizes that these repeated experiences have but one aim: to teach him what he does not want to learn.
Paulo Coelho, Warrior of the Light – A Manual
Alcohol addiction is found in all corners and facets of life, in all occupations and all age groups. The typical response is “They just need to go to AA.” The commonly held belief is that AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) will “cure” them. And for some, it does work.
But what about the others? In fact, the vast majority of people who struggle with alcohol don’t make it according to their statistics. The commonly held belief is that for every person who stays in the AA program, nine do not which means that 90% continue to abuse alcohol. The rehab industry cites relapse to be anywhere from 80 – 85% which means at least 80 to 85% do not make it either if they attend rehab.
If you are dealing with someone whose drinking is affecting your ability to live life fully, my programs address this issue too. The quote above from Paul Coelho also applies to your situation and the answers also lie within. Al-Anon was designed for those whose lives are affected by alcoholism. It also is based upon the 12-step approach, however, it does not go nearly far enough in helping you uncover your paradigms that are involved in the situation and developing spiritual approaches and practices to move beyond what you are interpreting as a problem or something to fix.
So, my question for you is why not look at addiction through another lens and see it as a learning opportunity and a spiritual stepping stone into your future? You see some people live the same year of life eighty times whereas other live eighty years of life…the choice lies within you.
