My hats off to man, I was about your age when I came face to face with my drinking problem. I had a wife and an18mth old daughter neither wanted anything to do with me. It came down to one Sat morning waking up with a hang over and my wife chewing on me. Just before she slammed the bedroom door she told me “ either you start going to church with me or we’re going to divorce court” So after yelling to her and telling her what I thought of Christians and church I started to think, what do I love more drinking and parting or my family.
So after a while I crawled out of the bedroom and said I was sorry and that I would try it her way. I knew I needed help in a big way and didn’t know witch way to turn, so I kept diving into drugs and booze. I was running from my responsibility as a husband and father I was scared and immature. So by drinking and drugging I tried to escape and hide. That only made it worse, witch I guess brought about the end of the whole thing, I hit rock bottom.
To make a long story short I became born-again and haven’t looked back since. That was over 24 years ago. With the Lords help I stopped drinking and the drugs and now have three great kids. This July we will be married 26 years. I still wake up from time to time with my wife chewing on me, but it’s not about my drinking.
The bible says “that Gods not a respecter of persons” that means He doesn’t show partiality, what He has done for others, and me He will do for you. He loves you more than you will ever know. As you get closer to Him, He will get closer to you He wants to help you and go through this with you. My prayers are with you and not to sound too preachy, but the Bible also says to “ trust in the Lord in all of your ways and lean not on your own understanding” and He will make your path straight. We’re here for yeah man!
