Understanding Your Relationship with Substances: It's Personal

Reset My Future understanding substances

Substance use is a complex topic, often depicted in stark terms: you either have a problem, or you don't. But life, like substance use, exists in many shades – it's not always black or white. At Reset My Future, we recognise the individuality of each person's experience with substances, steering clear of quick labels and focusing instead on understanding your unique journey.

Life's Many Shades

Just as there are countless colours between black and white, there's a wide spectrum of substance use. Some might find they're leaning on alcohol or drugs more heavily during tough times but can dial it back with support. Others might feel overwhelmed, as if substances have taken control. Where you stand on this spectrum is deeply personal and can change over time.

Finding Your Spot on the Spectrum

Identifying where you are on the spectrum of substance use is about self-reflection, not self-diagnosis. It’s asking yourself how substances fit into your life, how they affect your day-to-day, and whether they bring more harm than help. It's a process, and it's okay to seek guidance along the way.

Support Tailored to You

Because everyone's experience with substances is unique, the support you receive should be just as personalised. Whether it's figuring out strategies to cut back, understanding triggers, or seeking a way out of dependency, the plan should be tailored to fit your needs, your life, and your goals.

It’s About More Than Just Labels

The journey to understanding your relationship with substances isn't about affixing a label to yourself. It's about understanding your needs, behaviours, and feelings towards alcohol or drugs. It's recognising that "substance user" doesn't define who you are or what you're capable of achieving in your life and recovery.

If you’re pondering your use of alcohol or drugs, remember, you're not alone. Many people find themselves questioning their substance use at some point. What's important is recognising that you deserve support that respects your individuality and meets you where you are.
