Drug Dependency and the Groundhog Day Effect

When you love someone who has an alcohol or drug dependency, everyday can feel like you live in the movie Groundhog Day. For those of you who haven’t seen this amazing movie starting Bill Murray circa 1993, it’s essentially about a guy who wakes up everyday and does exactly the same thing. Seemingly, he is the only one that notices that everyone is just doing the same thing day in and day out. The movie itself is a bit of an acquired taste and you really only need to watch it once before you start to feel crazy but for people living with a drug dependency, this repetitive story line is a reality. As it turns out it’s not as funny when it’s not happening to Bill Murray.

When Your Loved One Has a Drug Dependency

Watching someone you care about consistently fall down only to get back up and continue to use is one of the worst feelings. You see them doing the same thing day in and day out and you just want to understand why they do this to themselves. It’s always just one more drink or one more hit. Chances are that, besides knowing that it makes them momentarily feel good, your addicted loved one doesn’t even really know why they want to do drink or use. It’s just become second nature to them, something they need to do in order to survive.
