Default Tonight, once again, I am ever so grateful for a Loving and Merciful God

Hello my name is Evan and I am an alcoholic.

Tonight I am so thankful for the love and mercy freely given to me by a mighty and powerful God. I am grateful for brothers and sisters that walk with me and a wife and family that for some reason are still here. There is redemption- all you have to do is accept it and surrender.

Great stuff man. Stick with it...The coward in me is personally terrified to be called or labeled as an alcoholic. I don’t know about genetic but environmental alcoholism is real. Grandpa did it, dad did it, and now I fight those urges to lean on alcohol as therapy vs. asking the family and loved ones for support.

That is awesome, it is positive to hear how people can change their lives and be an inspiration for others. I know a few people who were alcoholics and I think the single greatest thing that turned their lives around was the faith in God, that things will get better. Also having someone like yourself prove to them that it can be done. Thanks for sharing.

God was the only answer for me. 27 years since I hit my knees one night in rehab. I've been sober since and we walk together every day. He's kept His promise.
Congratulations my brother.

Congratulations, brother! Iím 11 years and 4+ months sober...and it got easier with every day that passed. I canít tell you the last time I was even tempted, and the last 18 months has seen life deal our family a hellish hand...and I never contemplated resorting to the old way of handling it. Keep up the fight

It's anything but. I did it for 25 years. Ironic that we lean on that which caused 95% of our problems in the first place. I decided something had to give. Prayers.
