Financial Destruction By Addictions

Aug 5, 2008
You have only had to have grown up in the past twenty years or so to realize what a problem so many people all over the world are having with addictions of all kinds. Everything from drugs, alcohol, gambling, and even sexual addictions are wreaking havoc with lives. No one is really entirely immune to an addiction of some kind. We are all only human and someone who never dreamed that they would have an issue with one of these things can suddenly find themselves spiraling out of control.

People who suffer from an addiction such as those mentioned, can sometimes function fairly normally for years and show no obvious effects from the problem. However, so often when addiction is ruling a life, there are usually serious consequences of some kind in the end that will either cause a person to seek the help they need or give up entirely and let the addiction destroy them as much as it can.

One side affect of many addictions is the devastation that it can wreak not only on the mind and body, but on their way of life. People with addictions can easily end up in financial ruin because of them. Someone can have the best job in the world, have a huge inheritance left to them, or even win a lottery and seemingly be set for life and let an addiction come along and take it all away.

This happens easily enough for those who have a good job and future, but it can be even more devastating a lot faster for any person with only a modest income. When you barely make enough money to survive from week to week, a serious addiction can destroy your way of life even faster. One month you might have a home or apartment of your own, drive a decent car, and maybe even have a few dollars saved up, but when uncontrollable addictions hit hard, that can all be gone and you could be homeless, walking, and hungry in a matter of weeks.

If you or someone you know are showing signs of an addiction in one form or another, it is better to seek help now rather than waiting for the devastation that will surely come. Especially when people are addicted to drugs or alcohol, they will spend any money they have, sell anything they own, and even resort to stealing from others to support that habit when it becomes bad enough.

If you have found yourself or someone close to you doing any of these things to supply a habit of any kind, the time for healing is now. If you already can not afford to pay for help, you can get free help from churches, government agencies, even on the internet. It does not matter where you seek the help, just do it. Do not wait until it has destroyed you and your future.
