What are the chances of alcohol addiction recoveries?
Alcohol addiction recoveries are certainly possible. Alcoholics usually fall into two categories:
It is virtually impossible for an alcoholic to cure himself, and the best and wisest thing for him to do is to go for professional help. There are some former alcoholics whose recovery is so complete that they are actually able to begin drinking again in moderation without becoming addicted once more. However, these people are in the minority and it is always safest for those who have once been addicted to alcohol to abstain from drinking altogether, as the border line between controlled drinking and addiction is so easy to cross.
The first group is completely in denial of the fact that they are addicted to alcohol and are firmly convinced that they are totally in control of their drinking. Sadly, it is unlikely that those who are in this group are ever likely to recover on their own.
The second group is able to either see for themselves that they are becoming or are already addicted to alcohol, or they open to finally being convinced by their friends and family that they need help. They can then go to an support group which is dedicated to helping such people to conquer their addiction. Those in this segment have every chance of recovery.

If you have a friend or family member who belongs to the first group of alcoholics discussed above, (one who absolutely refuses to recognize that he/she has a problem), then I would like to stress that there is no need for despair. God is always waiting with love, compassion, and practical help when anyone turns to Him in prayer. Ask God to work a miracle in your loved one’s heart.
