Alcohol Addiction Recoveries

QUESTION: What are the chances of alcohol addiction recoveries?

ANSWER:

Alcohol addiction recoveries are certainly possible. Alcoholics usually fall into two categories:
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
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.

Alcohol Addiction Recoveries – Finding Help
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.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
