The Starving Mentality of Alcoholics

Alcoholics possess a certain level of self starvation or self neglect which overflows over into every single part of theirThe Starving Mentality of Alcoholics lives. They neglect their homes, they neglect their yards, they starve themselves of good food on a continual basis, they do not recognize nor employ appropriate personal boundaries, and if they do, these boundaries only encircle part of their personalities, they are unreliable with themselves and they are unreliable with other people. What is the reason for being an alcoholic? Well, it is the wonderful and intoxicating sensations of not having control or responsibility over your own life and of not really having to deal with anything around you.

This lack of accountability is extremely seductive.

Who wouldn’t want to be a part of it?

However, alcoholics bring this starvation and death and destruction and complete abandonment into the lives of everyone around them, including people they live with, people they are related to, people they are friends with, and people who are their support system. They neglect themselves and their personal solitude to such an extent that their neglect affects their personal appearance, their property values, the property values of adjacent houses, their food intake, and it really affects how they spend their money.

To invite yourself into the world of an alcohol or to allow yourself to be drawn into it is about as effective as giving up a table full of good and interesting and tasty food for a gray, greasy fast food meal to eat in a hurry on the way to work. It is a dangerous way to live, since they do not possess nor do they enforce personal boundaries, and the result is that their presence is neither safe nor protective and they easily and freely allow other, far more dangerous, people into your life.
