“once alcoholic” Vinod’s testimonial

Narrated on 05-06-2016 .

My name is Vinod. I am an alcoholic. Due to God’s grace and fellowship of Alcoholic Anonymous (AA) and your prayers,I have not consumed alcohol today.I started using alcohol when I was 22 years old. I never had the habit of drinking daily. But, if I started taking alcohol, I kept on consuming till my condition gets worse and I had to be admitted to some hospital. Because of the treatment, I could restrain myself from taking alcohol and be spiritually inclined for some time. After few months, I will get a chance to taste alcohol again and will continuously drink. During this time, I did not bother to take bath or brush my teeth. All I cared about was to drink and sleep. There would always be a bottle of alcohol at my bedside to have few gulps when I wake up, or else I would not be able to stand on my legs.

In such circumstances, I got an opportunity on 8th Dec, 2013 to quit alcohol. In fact, I had alcohol with me on 7th Dec. But when I was about to drink, I started vomiting. Next day, by God’s grace, my friend Jiss took me to AA fellowship at Manarcad. From then, for last 911 days, I have not touched alcohol. Now, I am living happily. I attend family affairs diligently. I take care of my wife, children and other members of my family. I repent for the mistakes I have committed. I request you all to pray for me to continue this way of life. I will also pray you.
