Prayer Request

I'm having problems with alcohol. I drank for 10 years then I got sober for 5 1/2 years now I've been drinking for a year. I know I don't want to be abstinate from alcohol I need a balance. I wish I could always be responsible with alcohol consumption.

Maybe since it sounds like you love alcohol too much and don't want to give it up, it might be best just to ask remove your love for alcohol so that it is not something you have to give up or force yourself to abstain from but you are simply ambivalent towatds it. It is not something you hate butt it is not something you want or desire either. You could easily live without it.

Do you seriously think you can drink and keep it in 'balance'?

What is it about alcohol that don't want to lose? Does it relax you? Then ask God to relax you when you are all wound up. Does it comfort you? Then ask God to be your comfort. Does it allow to escape your problems tempporarily? Ask God to let you hide him for the night. Does it help you sleep, make you feel happy or confident, etc whatever it is ask God to replace it so you don't need the alcohol.
