I wanted to share my struggle with alcohol so that those praying for healing for their loved ones can have confidence.
I struggle with drinking wine, I would drink one bottle a day and never really had many effects from it. I wanted to stop because I hated being controlled by something and I knew it was ruining my health.
I managed to quit for months on end but always went back to the bottle. It would start with a few glasses every few days, but i would fall and start needing one bottle a day again.
I prayed to be released from this demon and I started to have the strangest pressure in my brain after drinking, it was so unpleasant that I couldn't possible drink everyday. I had to place three or four days between bottles.
They in went to once a week. I didn't want to give up this last bottle, and I confessed to my priest how much I didn't want to ask Jesus to cure me, because I liked wine and wanted to keep it.
I drank my bottle of wine that evening and the next morning I rushed and confessed again and promised not to drink for the next few months.
I am at this place now in my journey,
I know with prayers I will stay away from wine because I choose Jesus.
I give myself to him and I can't it i am drunk.
So God can really make someone intolerant to alcohol so they have no choice but to change.
I prayed for myself (prayers I didn't want to pray) for deliverance, so I don't know if that makes a difference.
But prayers to stop addiction do work!
God bless you for sharing your story and may God bless you on your journey. You have encouraged me to pray more for my cousin. Thank you so much.
