How I gave up social drinking

God showed me what steps to take.

When You're Tempted to do something against your principles, what's the best thing to do? I learned it's to turn to God with all your heart.

I did this several years ago, shortly before I became a member of the Church that publishes this magazine. One of the commitments to church membership we make is to be free drinking alcoholic beverages. I didn't have a serious drinking problem, but I was still drinking socially. I turned to God wholeheartedly and prayed earnestly to Him to show me how I could stop this activity. I knew He would answer me.
