April 25 is a day of reflection. It’s the day we honor those who have lost their lives due to alcohol abuse, and it’s also World Health Day.
Alcohol consumption has been known to lead to many fatal diseases, such as cirrhosis and cancer, but it can also lead to death in other ways too. Alcoholism doesn’t just harm your body; it harms the people around you too– friends and family, coworkers and acquaintances.
However these individuals are not always aware that they’re living with an alcoholic or how much they may be hurting them by enabling their addiction.
Learn more about alcoholism today so you can stop this deadly cycle before someone else pays the ultimate price for it!
Daily Reflections April 25
In the late stages of our drinking, the will to resist has fled. Yet when we admit complete defeat and when we become entirely ready to try A.A. principles, our obsession leaves us and we enter a new dimension—freedom under God as we understand Him.AS BILL SEES IT, p. 283
I was fortunate to have this awesome transformation in my life. When I entered the doors of A.A., alone and desperate, all hope seemed lost but when they told us that if you keep going round and round it can be our last hangover or we’ll get a second chance at being sober; well those words hooked me!
They made so much sense for someone like myself who had given up on everything else before even trying because there’s nothing left worth living for without drinking alcoholics existance anyway right?
And then one day outta nowhere…my heart started listening again – Hearing “Being powerless over Alcohol” wasn’t such an issue after all compared 2the promises God has offered through Christ Jesus.”
Conclusion paragraph: If you’re reading this and are struggling with addiction, please know that there is hope. You don’t have to be in the grip of addiction forever – it can get better!
The first step is admitting your problem, which I’m sure many of us struggle with.
But if you want a different life for yourself, one where alcohol doesn’t rule over everything else, then call A.A., go into their doors alone and desperate as I did all those years ago and they’ll help change your life too!
