I understand many here are of different beliefs and I am in no way trying to convert anyone from any religious or non religious views. But as Adults please let me share aome verses that help/helped me through the toughest of times. Please dont hate upon them and if you have negative comments please just read them as a proverb and try relate it to yourselves. As i said I got comfort from these… others may not. We all have different eays of coping. Thanks Dan

@Zeus Thanks for creating this topic! Looking forward to seeing some of your favorites scriptures! Try a different browser (chrome) that worked for me last time. Blessings!
Since your posts still have “uploading” in them, I’m guessing that you posted before the image was done being uploaded.
2 Chronicles 20 v 9
I am sure we have all felt the pangs of pain in our various different stages of trying to become sober!

Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go.”
I love this verse becuase it reminds me that even those who are saved and accepted Christ and born again they are still not yet freed of the bondage of their past life. Jesus says to his disciples to free Lazarus of his hands so he can reach for a better life, his feet so he can walk into new territory and claim and to remove the cloth from his face so that he can see the promise of prosperity that God has given him, and to have the vision to see a new path for his life.
For me this verse reminds me to seek help and be receptive to others because we are incapable fo freeing ourselves. It shows me how I can be a better son, husband, father, businessman, believer, and disciple by listening and accepting feedback from others. The graveclothes are remnants of a past life that hold you back from doing anything. Bound we can do nothing but once we are freed of the bondage of our addictions we can finally overcome and reap God’s blessings.
Thanks for sharing that!

“Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.” Proverbs 27:17.
I like this one because it reminds me a lot of this forum. We have to help eachother become stronger to face our addictions. God bless everyone stay strong and have a great weekend.
“Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believeing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.” Romans 15:13
Dont know any bible versus even though i read the bible but jesus went 40 days and 40 nights fought temptation i truly believe that anyone is capable of this accomplishment. If they really wanted it.
I waited patiently for the LORD; And He inclined to me and heard my cry. 2He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm. 3He put a new song in my mouth.
The 40th Psalm of David, verses 1-3
“Wine is a mocker, and strong drink is raging; whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.” Proverbs 20:1
So much truth in this.
