recovering alcoholic

Submitted By: Anonymous

Prayer Request: In October of 2012 my grandfather passed away and my grandmother followed in 2014. In 2016 my grandmother from moms side also passed away. Since then my life has become very rough. I began drinking very heavily after Grandma (dads side) passed away. I would drink an entire bottle (4-5 glasses) of wine or a six pack per day. Sometimes I would mix hard liquor shots in the wine or beer. I had gotten out of control and alcohol had taken control of my life. I have now been sober for 4 months. Unfortunately, I am still struggling with the damages being an alcoholic has caused. I am on continued academic probation at school for the last semester. If my GPA is not a 2.5 minimum at the end of this semester in just a few weeks, I will be suspended from the permanently campus and can no longer attend. My drinking cause poor study habits. There are some people in my family that I have a bad relationship with due to disagreements. This person now insults me when she is angry with comments like “go drink yourself to death” or “why don’t you go get a shot”. She is seeking pleasure from the pain of someone she disagrees with. She is using my problem as a way to abuse me. I have lost what few friends I had back in high school from my excessive drinking. I am all alone now because of a horrible choice that I made. My brothers and sisters in Christ, I beg you to pray for me that the Lord may hear my cries for mercy. Most of all, please pray for me that I am forgiven by almighty God and by those whom I have hurt because of liquor. May God protect me from falling victim to this dangerous temptation again.
