* Once he finished it, he then took the rest of the pack of cigarettes and threw them in the trash in the kitchen. He had decided this afternoon that this cigarette would be the last one! He then continued to live until the age of 84! He was finally deceased about two months before him and my mother's 57th wedding anniversary. I often wonder why smoking is treated differently in the 'church' than drinking?

* Okay, that spoke to my heart. I recently stopped drinking 1 month ago, I felt that thumb for years. I tried to compromise just a few drinks never arrived, just beer and not wine worked a few times, and so on. At the end I just drank from time to time but it always ended up drinking a lot. I thought I would feel sorry but as you wrote I feel freedom. I feel closer to God and life in general. I had a stressful time and instead of turning to alcohol, I turned to other people.
* I felt lighter, more free, when I did not celebrate "it's five o'clock somewhere." I'm not saying I'll never have another cocktail, but it will not be more a thing of the day. For all the reasons you write above. Beautiful. To post. I like the sincere rawness ... Thank you for having the courage to stop. Thank you for being brave enough to share. Your obedience helps us to obey too.
* 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.
* After my husband and I left the seminary and traveled north to serve the churches ... we could not believe the banality of drinking among the Christians. They did not care to abstain. We chose not to drink not because of the rules, but because we did not want to influence our children with alcohol. They are now young adults and make their own choices which fortunately are not heavy drinkers. I can not judge or force anyone to reject alcohol, however ... like you, I believe that the Holy Spirit will walk by him and gently lavish all that needs to be done in our lives.
* Whether you use an online support group, attend meetings or seek individual advice, it is possible to stop drinking for everyone. If you are a moderate drinker, you may be able to leave your own without too much trouble. If you are a regular or heavy drinker, however, you may find this much more difficult. Internal and external triggers may cause you to want to start drinking again. Regardless of your current level of alcohol consumption, there are many resources available if you want to stop, including a state-by-state resource guide.
* Intense feelings of dread and anguish cross your sleepy spirit, as if the stinky demon had decided to move into your cerebral cortex. Remember that your brain is not only more active but also in panic mode. He became so used to alcohol that he started thinking that it was one of your normal bodily fluids. Imagine if you suddenly gave up the food, taking all your nutrients via an IV instead.
