Ephesians 5:18 Don’t fill yourself up with wine. Getting drunk will lead to wild living. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit.
Some of the people who have always annoyed me in recovery. Now don’t get me wrong because I have done it. People who get drunk/stoned and turn up to a meeting.
I used to have an alcohol addiction and I used to use a lot of drugs. Both gutter drugs and illicit drugs. I was a top-up drinker so I was drunk most of the time but I always managed to stay sober for the 90 minutes I was in meetings.
You have all heard the saying “ones too many and a thousand isn’t enough.” As a practicing alcoholic I cannot remember an occasion where I had one or two drinks and went home.
- Have you ever attended a recovery meeting under the influence?
