5 Wonderful Things That Happen When You Quit Drugs

Published

on

I have been an alcoholic and a drug addict for more than 6 years.

Since 2011, I drank alcohol and smoked marijuana every day.

The main reason I succumbed to addictive substances is that they always made me forget all my problems for a while. Therefore, the more problems I had, the more I drunk and smoked. This behavior continued till it reached a point where my addictions affected my health.

The health issues caused me to quit because I really treasure my health. Furthermore, I also knew that the health problems could prevent me from reaching the levels of success I aspire to reach.

After quitting drugs, 5 wonderful things happened to me.

  1. I had more time to focus on important matters

After quitting drugs I realized that I had enough time to focus on things that helped me progress in life. For instance, I had more time to read self-development books and watch informative videos on youtube. I also had more time to assess myself and check what was preventing me from making progress.

When I was a drug addict, I never had the time to do the above things because my only concern was getting intoxicated with my fake friends.

  1. I saved lots of money

After quitting, it dawned on me that I always wasted hundreds of dollars on addictive substances. I always spent my money on partying, drinking, and smoking.

Therefore, after I stopped using drugs, I realized that I had more money to invest in important projects

  1. I started making good friends

When I quit drugs I realized that I always associated with people who were only happy when I spent my money on drugs. I reflected on how my friends were always angry at me whenever I spent a less amount of money on drugs and alcohol. They always wanted me to spend more money on these substances.

Therefore, after quitting I got the opportunity to dump all my drug-addict friends and I made friends with people who loved to see me make progress in life.

  1. I started investing in myself

My drug addiction always made me neglect myself. I never cared about my appearance or where my life was heading. I only cared about ‘getting high.’ However, after quitting, I started caring about my health, and my appearance.

I changed my closet, and purchased self-development books. Besides this, I also used my money to buy healthy foods.

  1. People started respecting me

Lastly, I noticed that many people including my parents started respecting me when they realized that I quit using drugs.

It then dawned on me that many people avoid and look down upon drug addicts because they associate addicts with failures, criminals, and people who have given up on life. People, therefore, respect you when you stop using drugs because they start perceiving you as a well-behaved, and focused individual.

Concluding Remarks

Using drugs is a pleasurable and addictive activity. I always ran to the liquor store or looked for coke whenever I felt stressed. However, I realized that these substances never eliminated the stress. Nowadays, I learned to deal with stress in a different way. Whenever I feel stressed, I often go to my parents’ backyard and look at the hills because the hills remind me of A SUPREME INTELLIGENCE that is larger than my problems. Meditating on this HIGHER POWER always enables me to achieve a sense of inner peace.

Therefore, if you are an addict you can find many other ways to attain a relaxed state of mind. Lastly, try quitting drugs for a while and you will realize the amazing things that will happen to you. You will have more time to focus on important matters, you will save a lot, you will dump fake friends, you will invest in yourself, and finally, you will reclaim your dignity.

5 Great Benefits of Spending More Time Alone

Published

on

I’ve always been a social person who loved spending more time with people. However, my decision to curve my own path in October 2017 resulted in me spending more time alone.  Since then, I embraced solitude because I tasted its sweet fruits.

I realized the following benefits of solitude.

1.You Do More Useful Shit

Spending more time alone enabled me to find time for working towards my goals. In 2018, I managed to write articles all year, read and write books, and make money because of solitude.

Before embracing solitude, I was unable to do useful shit because I was always with my friends, and we liked spending our time arguing, joking, drinking, and smoking pot. We wasted lots of valuable time that we could have used to do useful shit.

2.You Stop Being Concerned About Other People’s Affairs

I realized that spending more time alone enabled me to stop being concerned about other people’s affairs. I had no one to tell me about John’s alcoholic monkey, Jerry’s cool rat, and Tom’s fucked up cat.

It dawned on me that the more I spent time with people, the more I wanted to know and think about their affairs. And the more I thought about their affairs, the more I wasted time comparing my life with theirs. Solitude thus allowed me to only think and care about me.

3.You Save More Money

Spending more time alone enabled me to save more money because I lacked the company that encouraged me to spend money on parties, clubs, and the latest footwear. I also saved more because I stopped spending on people to make them love my company.

4.You Engage in Deep Thinking

Being alone allowed me to engage in deep thinking during my free time. Deep thinking enabled me to discover many pearls of wisdom that I’ve shared in my blog posts and book. Earlier, it was almost impossible for me to engage in deep thinking during my free time because I spent it socializing.

5.You Know Thyself

Spending more time alone enabled me to face myself. With no one to occupy my energy and attention, I started thinking about my weaknesses, strengths, and passions. I discovered that my major weakness is the fear of rejection, and my major strength is a strong will power. I also realized that I loved reading, researching, and watching wildlife documentaries. It was hard for me to discover such things before embracing solitude.

Conclusion

These are the five major benefits of solitude that make me want to spend more time alone. You can try spending more time alone and you’ll experience them personally. Anyway, I believe there are many more benefits of solitude that many bloggers have written about. You are free to add them in the comment box below.

Love Ya. Thanks for reading my shit

A Summary of The 22 Harsh and Hidden Truths I Have Learned in 2018. HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Published

on

This is my last article in 2018 and I would love to share with you what I’ve learned this year. 2018 has been a wonderful year for me. I’ve known wonderful people from different parts of the world through my blog. I’ve also posted articles consistently, experienced the power of solitude, and learned the following harsh and hidden truths about life.

  • Prayer Changes Nothing If You Don’t Take Action

If you want to achieve your goals, work hard towards them. Don’t just pray and expect a god to help you achieve them. If you do so you’ll literally achieve your goals in your dreams.

  • ‘Bad’ Things Will Still Happen Even If You Pray

Prayer doesn’t prevent ‘bad’ things from happening. The world will throw loads of shit at you even if you pray 1,000 times a day.

  • God/Infinite Intelligence Exists Whether You Like it or Not.

After studying several biology books and watching many wildlife documentaries, I realized that the universe is intelligently designed by something with intelligence beyond our measure. Many people call it God.

  •  Your Body is Intelligent

The body is very intelligent. It makes you feel hungry when it needs food, and it knows how to digest the food and absorb crucial nutrients necessary for its growth.

  • Reading Books Makes You Wiser

I have learned a lot through reading, and I also realized that most wise people read a lot.

  • You Have to Train Yourself to Be Strong

Life is good but sometimes shit happens. Be strong when shit happens, and believe that you are powerful than your experiences because they are an illusion.

  • If You Wish the Best for Others You Won’t feel Bad When Good Things Happen to them.

Wishing good things to happen to others makes you rejoice with them when good things happen to them. However, wishing bad things to happen to others will result in you feeling bad when good things happen to them. Therefore, always wish the best for others and you’ll never be resentful.

  •  Living the Life of Your Dreams is Possible But Not Easy

I extensively studied the biographies of many folks living their dreams and realized that they are all ordinary people who were brave enough to follow their dreams. I, therefore, concluded that it’s possible for each of us to live our dreams. However, I also realized that it’s hard to live our dreams because we’ll have to make sacrifices, work hard, and persist until we achieve them.

  • Life Fuckin Goes On When You Die

Only a few people will cry when you die. But the ants, lizards, cows, my cute naughty cat, and 99% of the world will continue with their normal schedule. Be Humble.

  • Generosity Attracts Love

People love generous folks, and they are willing to die for them. Politicians know this and they become extremely generous during political campaigns.

  • Having A Job is not The Only Way To Make Money

I always believed that I can only make money through employment. However, this year, this belief changed after meeting folks who make lots of money from their businesses and craft.

  • It’s Hard to Build A Successful Business

Building a successful business requires you to persevere when you experience losses. It also requires you to take huge risks and build business skills.

  • If You Are Expecting Success, Expect Jealousy Too.

Not everybody, including your close friends and relatives, will be happy when you succeed. But don’t worry, that’s part of life.

  • You Can Connect With Infinite Intelligence/God

Infinite Intelligence is in everything within and around you. You become highly connected to it when you focus all your energies on one thing.

  • Never Ever Give A Fuck About What Other People Think About You

You will never live authentically if you are concerned with other people’s thoughts about you. You’ll focus so much on doing things that please others if you care so much about other people’s thoughts.

  • The Law of Attraction Works

You attract what you mostly think about because your thoughts shape your actions.

  • Maybe Ghosts, Mermaids, and Fairies Exist

I read somewhere that there are forests with viruses so deadly that a human being can die a few hours after entering them. Maybe ghosts and fairies live in these forests. Besides this, a big part of our oceans is unexplored; maybe mermaids dwell in this part.

  • Solitude is Awesome

Solitude makes you think deeply, and it creates lots of free time which you can use to make your dreams a reality.

  • You Don’t Have to Be Old For You to Be Wise

Contrary to popular belief, you can be wise at a young age. Remember, the Christian Messiah: Jesus, was wise at age 12.

Yes, wisdom comes with experience but it also comes with enlightenment and you can be enlightened at any age.

  • You Might Never Progress If You Fear Taking Risks

Never expect to progress when you play safe. Progress requires risk-taking since risks open you up to many opportunities and allow you to fail forward.

  • Academic Education Is Bullshit

Academic education trains you to memorize a lot of information that you’ll never use in real life. Besides this, it doesn’t make you wiser as it never shows you how to navigate through the journey of life.

The only good thing about academic education is that it helps you to read, write, and calculate.

  • I Love Game of Thrones

Sorry, I know this is a personal development blog but I just had to put this on my list. Game of Thrones is one of the few Television Shows I watch and I can’t wait for the final season. The TV show makes me forget everything for a moment and dissolve into wonderland. Can’t wait to see who will eventually win the GAME OF THRONES.

Conclusion

Hope these truths had an impact on you.

Anyway, there are many hidden truths I have learned after dedicating my life to discovering how life and the Infinite Intelligence works. I believe that life is so good and we can experience heaven on earth if we live in alignment with the universal flow.

I believe you already know that this is my last article in 2018. But don’t worry, I will give you more nuggets of wisdom when I’m back in January. I have worked so hard this year, and I think I need a break. And to all readers who have a dream, keep working on it and remember that if you don’t give up you won’t fail. I have not yet achieved my dreams but I know that I will achieve them soon if I work hard and persevere enough.

Every great person was like you and me. They just persevered when others gave up, and all they cared about was achieving their dreams; nothing else. We’ll also achieve our dreams if we just don’t give up. The universe has already given us whatever we want. We just have to play our part by working hard and trusting the future.

Thank you so much for reading this blog post.

I also thank all my loyal readers, especially Alan Maicon and Steve Ogut for making me feel that some people out there love my work. Thanks a lot.

ANYWAY

You can grab my free book and receive enlightening knowledge I have learned this year.

And lastly, always remember Jim Rohn’s words.

“Make plans like an adult and believe in them like a child, and the most incredible things will happen.’ –  Jim Rohn
