Two days ago I drank too much beer, when I woke in the morning I was feeling grumpy and depressed.

I haven't had another drink, and I know that if I do I'll go through the same cycle. Something happened to my faith when I started drinking, I became uninhibited and a false sense of love (Euphoria) enveloped me.

This feeling cut off my natural affection for Gods spirit, and replaced it with a proud sense of being bullet proof (Something like that)

I pray to our father of heavenly lights, that I mature quick in this area.

I quit drinking back in 1986 as I did not like the person I became as for a time I walked away from grace, but grace brought me back. I know if I were to start again it would be the most stupid mistake I could ever make.

There is "drinking" and there is DRINKING. My parents DRANK and killed their livers along with the rest of their bodies before I was 20. Many doctors have sternly warned me that I "carry the alcoholic gene" and should be a teetotaler. I basically laugh at them. I simply do not have an addiction-prone personality in any respect - gambling, drugs, alcohol or anything else. "Golf" and "running" are the closest I have come to genuine addictions. I have precisely one very dark beer (such a Guinness Stout) or one glass of dark red wine, both of which are quite healthy, almost every day and have done so for years. I periodically stop entirely for a few weeks just to demonstrate that this is not a habit that is controlling me. I find that "drinking," as opposed to DRINKING, adds to the enjoyment of life in at least a small way. There have certainly been times in my life when I was seriously DRUNK, but this was always a negative experience - not enjoyable either when it was happening or afterward.

Lord, may we recognize the subtle ways of temptations and trust in you to make the way of escape knowing you want the very best for us. May we be quick to pray knowing you are performing a mighty work in us recognizing it's a process that starts with prayer and ends with believing. Thank you Jesus for helping breathofdesire to see their need knowing that you are faithful to complete that work which you have begun.
