Advice On Giving Up Alcohol....
* And I was also a young woman who was living a lie. Finally, I became so suicidal that I went into treatment for 2 months. To this day, I have a list of foods that are my alcoholic foods - a taste and I'm looking at the bottom of a bag, a box or a carton and move on to the next Â "Hita". I stole food, I ate it in garbage cans, anything to get my "medicine".
* But because it was the right thing to do. Most of us are leading a much tougher battle though. As the author has kindly conveyed. Do not assume that people do not care. Or saw the coffee and the alcohol in the same way. They just did not talk about that. The church has protected it. To present. We talk about it. We also have the web. And free thinking. In 2017. I think it's a well-written, deeply personal essay, and I'm so happy that it worked for you.
* My understanding of the need for vulnerability in relationships has grown because now there is nothing to take away the edge. I can not have a relationship with God if I do not want to open up and be vulnerable and honest with me. It's hard to do when you have washed the edges of everything. Thank you for this post. An excellent way to say it, Christy - thank you! And you are right. You do not realize how much lighter you are without this blur.

* I began to realize that I was not a special snowflake in some way or another immune to addiction and dependency. I started to see what my parents still hadI saw it because I started to see it in myself. And again the Holy Spirit was sitting with me, waiting for me to trust this invitation. Not to moderation, not to leniency, not to "count drinks" or "record" or reasonable. No, I had no illusions, it would be a total surrender, the imposition of my preferences and my rights to embrace what could be better.
* While your body will have adjusted after a week of not drinking, there may be some psychological effects of detox that last longer. Some people report feelings of anger and aggression, general anxiety and depression, nightmares and difficulty sleeping, and even a decrease in libido. This is partly because alcohol consumption affects neurotransmitters that are involved in mood, such as serotonin.
* But as I move away from the law, I wonder if we have left the path of holiness or if we have begun to forget that God also cares about what we do and how we do it and Why. Conviction is lessthe sentence only on the invitation. It is an invitation to freedom. It is an invitation to the plenitude. Maybe our choices for these invitations to God are really an intersection for our free will or our free will and the activity of the Holy Spirit - maybe that's where the transformation begins.
* It gives me something to think about. Thank you! I am so glad to have fallen on that. I grew up around drinkers, but I saw how it could easily cause harm, so I always abstained even before I started following Christ. At the university, however, I met many Christians who grew up in Christian homes without alcohol or drinking and who saw this as their free right and were always rude to me when I expressed to them my disappointment and lack of desire to drink.
* So so grateful. So, one of you there in despair, that can be done. God will help you. I know what you mean in relation to the alcohol that starts not working. I can have wine and it does not make me feel like before. And it's as if we forget that the reason we continue to know in our hearts ... deep inside us, knowing we want to leave ... it's because it's God. God is in us. Just here ... not there as people tend to think about it.
