Try this, and actually perform a burial for your addiction. Write down your addiction and explain it and how it messed up your life and the awful experience you had with it, including if your kids were taken or you lost a spouse or family because of it and put it in a container of some kind and seal it up!
Most common treatment options for addiction:
Research studies on addiction treatment typically have classified programs into several general types or modalities. Treatment approaches and individual programs continue to evolve and diversify, and many programs today do not fit neatly into traditional drug addiction treatment classifications.
Most, however, start with detoxification and medically managed withdrawal, often considered the first stage of treatment. Detoxification, the process by which the body clears itself of drugs, is designed to manage the acute and potentially dangerous physiological effects of stopping drug use. As stated previously, detoxification alone does not address the psychological, social, and behavioral problems associated with addiction and therefore does not typically produce lasting behavioral changes necessary for recovery. Detoxification should thus be followed by a formal assessment and referral to drug addiction treatment.
Because it is often accompanied by unpleasant and potentially fatal side effects stemming from withdrawal, detoxification is often managed with medications administered by a physician in an inpatient or outpatient setting; therefore, it is referred to as “medically managed withdrawal.” Medications are available to assist in the withdrawal from opioids, benzodiazepines, alcohol, nicotine, barbiturates, and other sedatives.
I’m adding on a treatment ad on option to these programs:
Peer Counseling for Addiction
This means, counseling from an individual that has real life experience with addiction, and recovery. Someone who has been where you are, knows what you are experiencing, and even what is going through your thoughts. A person with years in recovery under their belt, has experienced relapses, and knows how to help you because they have been there and have reached a point in recovery in which you desire to achieve and can help you achieve that.
As an addict in recovery, I can tell you that everyone is different and each person’s addiction is different, so what works for you may not work for someone else. In any case, addiction absolutely doesn’t work, that program is failing you and I think you know that. It’s only a matter of time before you either end up in jail, homeless and broke, or worse dead. Please don’t wait because the longer you do the harder it will be to not only quit but to heal your body physically and then longer mentally. You can do it, I’m not saying there’s a cure, I don’t lie, but I am saying this is a manageable life long disease that you can master. Don’t put it off any longer if at all possible, and remember your not alone, and that even the best succumb to this so don’t feel embarrassed or ashamed of yourself. Your a fighter and I’ll see you on the flipside. Please send me a message if anyone needs advice or has questions, Ill be happy to help you if I can and if I can’t I’ll find you someone who can and will.

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM A TOOLBOX?
Whether you are thinking about sobriety, are in the early stages of it, or are well into it, you can benefit from having a Toolbox. Actually, if you are human you can benefit from a Toolbox.
If you are still drinking/drugging/whatevering, you can start incorporating these things NOW. By doing this, you effectively soften the blow when you remove the harmful substance. Adding in healthy coping tools before the quit creates new habits, new synapses in the brain, new circuitry. You effectively train yourself to seek the healthy coping mechanism/tool, and as you move through quitting the bad stuff, your body has learned other ways to self-soothe/balance/cope.
#Madmom05realRecovery-A personal note:
The most used “Tool” that I have in my own Addiction Recovery Toolbox, is for times of acute and sudden stress, days in which im feeling particularly depressed or am so close to giving in, actually can be accessed through anyone’s YouTube app! I made a #motivationinRecovery playlist and added all my favorite speeches or talks, or songs that motivate me to keep going and to not give up. I listen to them and slowly but surely my thinking eventually begins to change and I get that boost of confidence I need to realize that not only was I triggered, but I can name what triggered me, note any red flag thoughts or actions that I had prior to that and begin to plan ways to better avoid that in the future, even potentially training myself to catch the red flags, and then immediately redirect myself towards something that effectively holds my attention and mind away from the problem/problems that lead me to thinking about giving up my sobriety. I’m not near there as of yet, but with practice I know I can be my own defense and win in the long as long as I prepare for absolutely anything that could cause me to fail.
