Advice On Giving Up Alcohol....
* You explained it beautifully. I think that belief has had a bad reputation in the church lately. I agree, even if I am guilty of this attitude / perception in some areas. I found it so interesting that even though it was so easy to stop drinking it was as you described it, a relief, it was harder to explain to other Christians. There is an unspoken feeling in the air that not to drink should be less "free".
* The first year has been very difficult, but the last two have been great. Some of my family members also stopped drinking. My mind is no longer in the fog and my priorities are no longer this party to go this weekend. This changed my personal relationship with God and eliminated so much guilt. Thank you for sharing this will cause changes in so many other lives. A wonderful testimony, Erich - thank you for sharing this!.
* I did not have a problem with the drink but my husband did it. My middle daughter does. I had other aspects of my life that the Holy Spirit spoke to me about. You described it so eloquently. He never makes us feel guilty, just this slight decree until we know we have to do what He asks. . . and He asks because he knows what is best for us. Thank you for sharing so nicely. Beautiful. I hope this testimony leads to more freedom and abundance for others.

* I also come from a long line of alcoholics on my father's side. Fortunately, it did not work in my mother's family. We never drank while our children were at home and now they drink all ... more than others. We drink occasionally now. I can have a few beers with a steak and not think about it for weeks. My husband is the same. He never drank any more than Dr. Pepper until he was 60 and now, if he drinks, it's a little cooler.
* If you're drunk and you start to realize that your story is going to end with a bunch of your friends telling hilarious stories at your funeral, I promise you that it's really worth it to stop, despite All the bad things I described above. I have been a sober year since last week, and I have never felt better or more proud of myself in my life. And that year, I have not even woken up once with a rooster pulled over my face.
* Most of the time, I abstain. I do not need it, I never needed it. But it's odd to feel strange, to stand at a party without glass, to be the only one, to look at you and to wonder if they think you're judging, smiling happily, and 'hope they know you're not. Do we not have things in our lives to say Yes, God! May God bless your honest sharing and inspiring journey. Beautiful! Thank you for this presentation so rich.
