If you’re struggling with thoughts of suicide, PLEASE call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

“Rock bottom” is the major turning point in our addiction stories where we feel as though we’ve fallen as far as we could possibly fall. At this point, we’ve uprooted our lives and wreaked as much havoc and destruction as we can. When we hit rock bottom, our mental, emotional, and physical pain reaches an all-time high. Our agony becomes so intense that it has become unbearable. Our lives have become unmanageable. We’re unable to function. We can no longer continue this way if we hope to survive.

Launching Point

Hitting rock bottom is a painful, destabilizing, and terrifying experience. Fortunately, it also becomes the launching point for us to save ourselves from our self-destructive ways. When we hit rock bottom, we see more clearly how much pain our addictions have been causing us. We see firsthand how much we’ve been neglecting our needs and abandoning ourselves. Unbearable misery teaches us that we’ve been prioritizing our addictions over everything else in our lives, including our safety and well-being. We’ve endangered ourselves and the people around us. Depression, anxiety, panic attacks, suicidal thoughts, and other mental and emotional health challenges run our lives. Many of us feel that we’re lucky to be alive. We could have had even worse, more disastrous, and even fatal consequences. 

Wake-Up Call

Hitting rock bottom is our wake-up call. It signals to us, in alarming ways, that we need to make changes, and we need to make those changes right now. Once we hit rock bottom, many of us feel a strong sense of conviction and determination to turn our lives around. We see with more clarity than ever that our lives are fragile and precious. Desperation teache us that we owe it to ourselves to get sober. We realize that we deserve so much better. Even the most desperate addict deserves to be happy and at peace. Without hitting rock bottom, we may have continued to coast along in our addictions. Without a final wake-up call, we continue to assume we will be fine. We had yet to see just how much pain we were actually in. Rock bottom can ultimately be the catalyst for massive self-transformation. This is the experience that prompts us to save ourselves from the addictions that have been ruining our lives.

“Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.” – J.K. Rowling
