I've been going through my own personal struggles with alcohol as of late. My flesh craves it...I crave it in the evenings of my days. I've been diagnosed with MDD (Major Depressive Disorder) since I was young and have had many battles, physically and spiritually. I struggle with insomnia a lot. When I sit back to rest after the events of a day, I want nothing more than to lose myself in a state of relaxation and non-stress. To lay down at the end of my day and find that little bit of peace. But it eludes me so very often. And that's how booze crept in. I'll say it myself just so that no one else need bother. I know that that booze doesn't equate good, healthful sleep. But when you're in the heat of that moment, it's a deviously convenient means to an end. The relaxation, the euphoria...all the more dangerous when i have alcoholics on both sides of my family. This isn't what I want for myself. I know that if I cannot break myself of this dependance, my struggles will only worsen as time goes on. So ask you, I beg any and all of you to go before the Lord and pray with me that He will deliver me from the persistence of this trial in my life. Our Lord can overcome all.
