Overcoming Alcoholism: There Is Hope!

Alcoholism is a terrible disease that ravages the body and destroys relationships. It's also a spiritual sickness that keeps alcoholics from having a strong relationship with God and Jesus Christ. If you or someone you know is suffering with the burden of alcohol addiction, this study aid can help you begin to break free and start living an abundant, alcohol-free life.

Introduction

Alcohol can be an uncomfortable subject. If you have an alcohol problem it's not easy to admit it and seek help. If you know someone with a problem, confronting them with the issue or knowing how to help can be very difficult.

What does an alcoholic look like?

Many would likely be surprised to find that functioning alcoholics and people who regularly abuse alcohol are today in all walks of life.

Alcohol abuse: What can you do?

Whether or not you are personally facing issues surrounding alcohol abuse or earnestly want to help someone in the midst of alcohol-related issues, what can you do?

Drunkenness is a sin

While the Bible is clear that the proper use of alcoholic beverages is not wrong, the act of drinking too much alcohol (drunkenness) is continually condemned in God's Word.

What does recovery look like?

When an addict or abuser of alcohol enters into a post-drinking and/or abusing stage, they are said to be entering a new stage of recovery.

The choice is yours

Thousands of years ago, God Himself offered a group of people a simple choice. They had to choose one of two ways of life.
