Study of the Bible breaks the hold of alcoholism

When I was in my teens, I deeply longed to know more about the truth of my being. Questions concerning my purpose, identify, and mortality weighed heavily on my thought. I pondered many of the great human questions some of us consider from time to time. This philosophical questioning wasn't just a passing phase. It was real, and I demanded answers.

After seeking answers through self-help books, parents, teachers, colleagues, and diets, I was left disappointed and frustrated. It was distressing to think that I might never find answers to the truth about my existence. Then I joined my peers in activities that included drinking and smoking as well as other unhealthy habits. I remember taking my first drink and thinking how great I felt soon afterward.
