Every action that you make is your own decision and your own doing. Unless you have been forced into your addiction, being addicted to something is a choice that you made. Refusing to stand up to your preferences and accept that you made them in the first place will never get you anywhere.
In the same way, that denial will not help, not holding responsibility for the things you do will make it even harder for you to stop your addictions. Be accountable for your actions, choices, and decisions. Be responsible for your whole life, and recovery will follow.
Breaking Free of Your Bad Habits Requires Accountability
Without accountability, you will never be successful with your recovery from your addictions. A primary aspect of active addiction is making the people around you that you are not using use. Many addicts take on expertise to make it look like everything is going well while simultaneously avoiding the responsibilities, consequences, and just choosing to live in denial.
Part of making healthy changes is starting to lead a responsible and honest life. Being accountable for your past, present, and future is a significant step in completely recovering from your addictions. Accountability comes with multiple facets, and it starts with accepting your responsibility for everything that has happened in the past.
Playing the victim is one tough habit to let go of that most recovering addicts will relate to. It is just all too easy for you to blame other people for what happened to you instead of accepting the responsibility for the actions you made. You have to admit that the choices made in the past are all of your doing.
It is impossible to learn from your past mistakes if you will not be accountable for them. However, it does not mean that you have to feel ashamed or beat yourself up for what you did. Everyone makes mistakes, but you can take a significant step forward if you accept responsibility for the wrong choices.
To stop your bad habits, you need to be accountable for yourself. Addiction can destroy several aspects of your life, including your body, mind, and spirit. Recovery gives you the chance to heal all of your past wounds. You have to take care of yourself by including day to day responsibilities like the way you eat, how you react to people around you, and how you think.
This will also mean setting up a more positive future for yourself by creating reasonable goals and actively improving how you look at life in general. Recovery is your best chance of living the life you are meant to live, so you better make the most of it.
You are the only one accountable for your actions and your life. By holding yourself responsible for your past and your progress to recovery, you will be able to take a gigantic step towards leading a healthier and more balanced life.
