Overcoming Alcoholism

Alcoholism can be cured. Its cure involves much more than deliberate abstinence. It involves a transformation of thought, which replaces the craving for alcohol with a genuine, insatiable thirst for spiritual Truth.

Human thought regarding alcoholism has changed in recent years. Whereas an alcoholic used to be regarded as a sinner, he is now thought of as a victim of a disease. Viewed as a sinner, the alcoholic was an object of disgust. Viewed as a sick man, he is regarded as an object of pity. Through Christian Science we learn that this condition is both a sin and a disease and that the two are inseparable. But we learn also that both the sin and the disease can be overcome through an understanding of man as the image and likeness of Spirit, God.
