How do you know when your struggle with addiction has gotten bad enough to require rehab? The fact is that over 20 million Americans are struggling with substance abuse and less than one percent of them every year get the treatment they need. When addiction begins to have significant negative effects on your life, you need rehab.


Is Alcohol Getting You In Trouble?

One of the most serious signs of addiction is when you can no longer control your behavior while under the influence. If you routinely get into risky situations after drinking, or due to drinking, it's very likely that it's time to get help. Some examples of risky behavior include:

- Driving a car when drunk

- Continuing to drink after your doctor has told you it's causing health problems

- Causing harm to yourself or others while under the influence

- Being arrested for drunk driving, being drunk in public or other criminal activity

- Losing your job or being kicked out of school due to drinking

- Compromising your financial situation in order to obtain more alcohol


Are People Around You Worried About Your Alcohol Use?

Along with the previously mentioned negative effects on your life from alcohol use, you may notice that people around you are concerned about your alcohol consumption. It might start with your doctor warning you about declining health if you keep drinking. Your family and friends may start asking you to stop using alcohol or wonder if you're using too much. This means that they're seeing the negative changes in your life that you might not be seeing. Many times those struggling with addiction begin lying about their substance use when other people start noticing. They may start hiding it or using when away from people they know.

If you begin to feel guilty about your substance use and are hiding it or lying about it, it may be time to seek help.

I’d like to put my name in the hat as a regular contributor. My name is Blair Nicole and I started my business 6 years ago when I was broke, bankrupt, pregnant and sleeping in a twin sized racecar bed at my dad’s house...Within two years I had a full list of clients, was making enough money to live on my own and travel the world with my son. My life and business motto is “kick ass, don’t kiss it” and my writing style certainly reflects that. I’m not your run of the mill “entrepreneur” or “work from home” mom, and if you read on you’ll understand why.
