I am in recovery for alcoholism.
30 years of social drinking led to my heavy drinking and alcohol dominated my life. One day my lovely wife said I either needed to quit drinking or she was leaving. That was my “come to Jesus moment”. I knew that I needed to totally quit drinking and I couldn’t do it on my own. I didn’t know if I’d be successful but I knew if there really was a God, and he really loved me, then we could do this together.
Celebrate Recovery has helped me to share what I have received from God – the belief that He wants to be involved in my life. He is involved when I ask Him daily to help me, when I surrender to His will and not my sinful, earthly desires. I have been transformed, changed to allow Him take control of my heart and my desires.
