-Why is alcoholism afflicting teenagers so much?

"It's no fun at home. Life is boring. I'm not getting what I want. Life seems so hard." "I can let loose with my friends."

Many reasons cause teeners to escape into alcohol. One becomes lighthearted. It provides balance, perhaps to an otherwise uninteresting life. Present concerns seem more tolerable:.Proverbs 31:6,7.

-How can I quit addictions to power and to control I have, smoking, drinking and sometimes drugs.(prescription and hard).and gambling and debt addictions?.1Corinthians 3:16,17. To quit a bad habit, first isolate it from your actions. In your consciousness, your mind, see it as separate from you and that you are now done with it.

Addictions are evil programs that reign over you to your own destruction. These programs can be deleted, leaving you free. Bruno can help. Also, if a woman, this well experienced Calgary group will help.(aventa.org)

Get quiet and ask the Great Infinite Intelligence why you smoke, drink, do drugs, sex addictions, etc. See what comes to mind. Are you trying to escape from something? Is there something that continually gnaws at your soul, such as resentment, unresolved hurts, etc.? Do you drink for comfort? Do you eat to ease the burden and to treat yourself? Have you crossed the line from eating to live into living to eat? Has cocaine 'comfort' become the be all end all? Do you know how to love yourself and others?.Matthew 11:28 "Come unto me all you that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest."

At the bottom of many bondages is fear:.Hebrews 2:15 "And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage."

Addictions are a selfish thing of the spirit, which have as their base, desire to express meaning or personal purpose by outgoing love and service to others. If this remains unexpressed, frustrations accumulate, and satisfaction for existence is often sought elsewhere..

A proven program to help has been teenagers on drugs who were given a chance to help others, in lieu of jail time. Once involved with other disabled and handicapped children, some in wheelchairs, a concern was expressed for their welfare, which in turn healed most of those addicted, setting them on a radically different path. The light of love was seen in their eyes and actions.

Ask Him to deliver you from particular addictions you may have which can or are now hurting you. Escape is through Him. Ask Him for guidance in order to allow more of His Holy Nature to flow in and through you, so that He in you is superior to any difficulty you may now be encountering:.1John 4:4 "You are of God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world."

Something to live up to.Galatians 5:24 "And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts."

The Infinite One we often refer to as God can take all desire for anything away! Ask Him! He is the Deliverer.(the rescuer).Matthew 6:13; Romans 7:24,25; 2Corinthians 1:10; Galatians 1:4; Psalms 70:5. You are delivered thanks to Emmanuel the Christ. Accept this by agreeing with it, and trust He will keep you delivered. Derek does..2Timothy 4:18 "And the Lord delivers me from every evil work, and preserves me unto his heavenly kingdom; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen." 2Peter 2:9 "The Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished.(original is 'corrected')." 2Corinthians 10:4 "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds." Luke 4:18 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised." Ephesians 4:8 "Wherefore he said, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men." 2Timothy 2:26 "And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will."

Then, follow this:.Romans 13:14 "But put you on the Lord Emmanuel the Christ.(what does that mean?), and make not provision.(original is 'forethought', 'to make provision for a thing', to perceive before', 'foresee', 'to provide', 'think of beforehand', 'to take thought for', 'care for a thing').for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts.(excessive desires and desires that may hurt you in some way if pursued).thereof."
