Healing alcoholism

There was a time when I reached the point of drinking many of my lunches and dinners. I was at that state of alcoholism where I had become ineffective in my life. And I had to make an important decision. It was necessary for me to develop, through prayer, a sincere desire definitely to stop drinking. I had to find my answer to loneliness, fear, lack of self-confidence, in God—not alcohol. I discovered that there was no halfway position in this decision. I was well aware that I could not quit drinking through my own willpower; I needed an understanding of God and of the power of His will.

Through prayer as taught in Christian Science, I found that God had never left me; He was right there all the time. And with God's determining, loving help, I quit drinking.
