Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them!Isaiah 5:11 (KJV)
Alcoholism has been shown to be a destructive addiction, one that hurts both the individual as well as those around them. There is spiritual damage that happens as well. If you know anyone who has fallen under the evils of alcoholism of if you are addicted yourself, prayer is absolutely necessary. It can be one of the most debilitating habits that destroys lives. More importantly, it can destroy souls.
