Advice On Giving Up Alcohol....
* When reading this, I thought why, if it's "freedom" to drink ... is not it also "freedom" not to do it? I find it very liberating not to do it! I had a lot of experience of opposing childhood - a family with several generations of alcoholics. My mother made me my first margarita shortly after turning 18 years old. I have a cousin in recovery, a brother who is currently out of the wagon, and many other parents actively hooked.
* Your problems make sense When you are drunk, small problems become big problems for no reason. When you are sober, you have to deal with reality and you do not worry about petty things anymore.
* Put sobriety on a pedestal and do not remove it until you know that your problem is healed. Easier to say than to do, right? Whether alcohol is an important part of your social life, or just something that you and your band do from time to time, it will be difficult if your friends and family drink around you. The first step is to tell them that you just can not drink for a while. The second step is to cut off anyone with whom all you have done is drinking.

* It's so honest and true. I was raised in a house where my parents did not drink. When my children were little, we diddo not drink alcohol. But, over time, we started to try different wines. It was fun. It seemed harmless, but I wonder what influence it had on my grown-up children. I have alcoholism in my family. I hope they also understand how dangerous alcohol can be. For John the Baptist came neither to eat bread nor to drink wine, and you say, He has a demon.

* 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.
* 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.
* Building effective coping skills and getting to the root of your addiction is the key to recovering from alcohol abuse. Look for a therapist. Attend a type of group meeting, such as AA or NA. It is always helpful to have a support system of counselors and people who understand what you are going through. Utilize your friends and your family too. Go to WAR with your dependency. Recovery is a lifelong process and post-treatment maintenance is just as important as the initial treatment process.
* I read other articles that were judged and motivated by fear why risk having one? And they just did not talk to me like this. If HG asks me to stop, of course I will, but it has not happened yet.

I am grateful for that.
