Advice On Giving Up Alcohol....
* You have a better chance of ending your dependency if you are never exposed to treatment programs or 12-step programs. Clean up and there is no evidence-based re-adaptation, he says. "It's because no matter what you do, the whole concept of re-adaptation is flawed and unsupported by evidence." Says Dr. Mark Willenbring, former director of research on treatment and recovery at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism Alternet It's not easy, but you can stop drinking on your own, if you wish.
* Nobody cares. Nobody has to explain. Nobody needs to make it a "personal choice". Because at the end of the day, we are talking about a drink. I was wondering because you and I obviously have two very different ideas about what the author intends to say. While you are stuck on the subject of the lesson, I try to absorb the lesson itself. I did not read that the author turned alcohol into a "great spiritual problem", but rather what God personally called him to do, and it was with his drink of choice.

* An unpleasant divorce thrown me into the overdrive and if I could get drunk every night I would have, but I could not tolerate it. So, it was pretty much every night. I rationalized all that. . I had a stable job, I usually preferred to drink alone so that nobody knew it and I continued to pretend that everything was fine. Somewhere along this broken road, I found Jesus. . . . the prodigal girl returning home with such relief. but I still kept my little secret.
* After becoming a Christian with 33 years, I made several attempts to quit smoking until I was able to break through more than five years ago, the year of my 40 years. A year later, I had the idea of my book and my CD and found my calling which if I feel had waited for me patiently until I could really manage it. I feel free and happy like never before. Congratulations again, and all the best for your trip!.
* WOW! I have the impression that you have literally written my story! I could not pass all the test without sending some messages to my children ... WOW! WOW! YOU CAN READ THIS! So, THANK YOU! Thanking God for allowing me to stop on your blog. This confirmed what I knew he was driving me all the way through. Thank you for that. Thank you for being transparent and sharing your story. I came across this at the most perfect moment.
* In addition, the promise of "having a good time" alcohol does not really meet expectations in general. The negative consequences of alcohol are numerous, stress relief and useful components less. I think thatis difficult to be social and sober because craft beer and vineyards are places where people meet and socialize. It's really hard to order water or a soda at a bar and not feel like a Christmas story standing in a giant bunny suit.
* I always struggled with the young man of the Bible who wanted to be saved and Jesus told him to give everything and follow him. Does this mean that we should all sell all our earthly goods or we are not saved? No ... Jesus knew that the possessions were a fortress and a stumbling block in the life of this particular young man and that he was always going to stand between him and a relationship with Jesus.
* There is no judgment to drink, but there is also no immunity against addiction. Your words are sweet and true. Thank you. So, I drink about 15 glasses a week beer, whiskey and occasional wine. Sometimes 20. I can stop when I feel like it when I have a cold, for example. I have a doctorate from a large university, I have always been employed and I was married 20 years with two wonderful children.
