"Choosing your future" is about addiction. More precisely in this miscellaneous, it is about alcohol addiction. Becoming an alcoholic doesn't just affect you but it also affects everyone around you. Many people believe that when someone has an alcoholic in the family, that means that that person will grow up to be an alcoholic. Well that isn't always the case. The truth is that you choose your own fate, you decide if you are going to drink or not, you decide what you are going to do with your life, no one else can decide that for you. The future, what you become is entirely up to you.

 These holidays have been fun but I went a bit too far with the alcohol. Whenever I invited a friend over we would get really drunk and a friend of mine noticed. She got really angry last night and I didn't know why. She said that I was annoying her and I got angry because I was drunk. Some bad things were said by both of us but this morning we figured it all out. She admitted that she was angry because of all the alcohol I was drinking. We both apologized for what we had said and we forgot about the hole thing.

 

That's when I really noticed for the first time in my life that when someone drinks a lot, it doesn't only affect them, it affects everyone who loves them.

 

My father is an alcoholic and it annoys me but it doesn't hurt me because I hate him and don't care if he drinks himself to death or not. But me drinking affected my friend. Her getting so mad showed me that I was going too far and that I needed to slow down.

 

She wondered if I was on my way to becoming an alcoholic, I told her that I wasn't, that was the truth, I don't drink regularly and I definitely don't drink alone. I do get drunk when I am with my friends, and yes it was starting to get too often so I decided to take control and slow down, I definitely didn't want to become like my father. My friend was mostly worried because she thought that since my father is an alcoholic, maybe I would become one. Some people with alcoholic parents become alcoholics but people with parents who never drink also sometimes turn out to drink.

 

The truth about alcoholism is that you choose your own fate. For example if I decide not to end up like my father and feel very strongly about that, I won't end up drinking myself to death. If someone doesn't care about what happens to them, this can be due to bad events that have happened on their life, there can be many reasons, then they might end up drinking a lot. It all depends on what has happened in your life, some people have just had too many traumatising things happen to them and so can't not drink.

 

With the right motivation you can beat the odds, just because someone in your family is an alcoholic, that doesn't mean you will be, that is entirely up to you. You control your own future, you can choose your fate.

 

Stay strong, keep on surviving, see you, I love you!

You control your fate.
