The journey back from alcohol or drug dependency can be a long and hard road.
How do you know if you have a real addictive problem?
How do you know if you cannot walk away from that problem?
Below are a list of statements, that if you can apply to yourself, you need help...just one
of these statements should get you thinking about what you need to do to get on the right path.
I am not able to control when I begin or stop drinking.
I have made repeated efforts to change but have failed.
I have wasted years without deciding to get help.
My drinking has cost me one or more jobs.
I have hurt family and friends by my drinking.
Drinking has caused me to lie and steal and cover up.
I am burdened down with a lot of guilt and remorse for the things I have done while drinking.
I have avoided dealing with important issues in my life while continuing to become intoxicated.
I spend more time with other drinkers than with my family and friends.
I have had one or more close calls with death because of the consequences of drinking.
I try to cover a lot of pain by my drinking.
I feel so very far from God and wonder if He can forgive me or help me now.
We can take courage from the words of the Lord Jesus Christ, who said ďWith men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible!Ē Spiritual life is needed to find Godís freedom. It means opening your heartís door to the Savior, confessing your sins, and believing that His death on the cross paid the fullpenalty for you before a holy God. Let Him forgive you and make you His child, putting His life within you and giving you the Holy Spirit to direct and empower you.
The time for action is now! A child of God needs to make a clean break with sin and follow a structured program to learn Godís Word. The life principles of God will show us how to live a new life of victory and how to replace sinful habits with good ones that restore our character and enable us to live responsibly to handle the challenges of life without the bottle or drug. We will claim our identity as a true child of God and move forward as obedient disciples of Jesus. Others will see what a change God makes, after we were not able to do it ourselves!
