Alcoholism overcome through prayer

The temptation to smoke and drink was slyly sown in my teenage mind. I later reaped the whirlwind of demeaning drug addiction. As a result of alcoholism, I lost my job, my home, and my selfrespect. But even while I was indulging in these habits, I always studied the Bible, though without grasping the spiritual, practical effect of understanding Truth.

After I had lost my home, these words from Romans stayed with me: "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, northings present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord" (8:38, 39).
