I can’t put down alcohol. Whenever I try to go a day without it, I feel like I might faint and die. How could I stop drinking the stuff? Any suggestions?
Addiction is far more controlling than people would like to admit. There was a time when I was smoking weed every day! It helped me become creative (so I thought). But after awhile, I realized that I didn’t want to depend on some drug in order to create something with the talent that God had already given me.
Do I smoke now and again? We’ll keep that a mystery.
But in order to tear myself away from the stuff, I would put it up in a spot that was very uncomfortable to get to. I also threw myself into different writing projects that I was working on. I tried to substitute my addiction to weed with addiction to something more positive. I prayed more, and wanted to develop a connection. To be honest, I believe that weed helped me focus when praying, and I started to have more of a connection with God.
So try and invest more of your time doing things that are not surrounded by alcohol. Eventually, you’ll learn to go at least a couple of days or weeks without it.
