Hey everyone, just introducing myself. Glad to find this site.
I also wanted to share some encouragement as I’ve been encouraged by others. I’m Christian and struggled with alcohol for several years. I “believed” that I had a disease which caused me to drink. I now know (thank God!) that this is a lie. I only wish I found out sooner. Addiction was my choice and I chose willingly to drink. I liked it so the choice was an easy one…but it was still a choice.
I can’t tell you how liberating it is to realize that I have a choice rather than a disease. I once chose alcohol. I now choose sobriety and loving every minute of it!
