Defeating alcoholism

Live audio chat with Brian Talcott, C.S.B.

In this deeply Christian discussion, Brian notes that many lives are touched in some way by alcoholism, but that it is possible to overcome addiction and the challenges related to it through an understanding of God and our relationship to Him. Brian says, "It can be tough at the beginning," but as individuals awaken to their true identity as the loved child of God, they make rapid progress.

Brian responds to questions about marriages and family relationships affected by alcohol addiction. He also deals with the belief that alcoholism is hereditary, and with the mental abuse and violence that can result from drunkenness. He describes how to overcome feelings of unworthiness and realize God's love for each individual. In addition to questions, some of the site visitors also bring accounts of how they or a relative was healed of this condition.
