Alcohol/Drinking/Drugs

Overcome your addiction by asking God for help. God loves you very much and He is able
 to deliver you from your addiction completely. You will need self-control to overcome.
 First, Pray and ask God into your heart and ask Him to take control of it. Ask Him to
 forgive you for your sins and ask Him to send his Holy Spirit to help deliver you from this
 addiction. 


What The Scriptures Say About Drinking?

Eph. 005:018 - And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Prov. 020:001 - Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise. 1 Cor. 006:009 - Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 006:010 - Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 006:011 - And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. Gal. 005:019 - Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 005:020 - Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 005:021 - Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
