Jehovah`s Witness/A Past Drinking Problem


Brother DW,
 Just to let you know of my progress. I have been off the "juice" for two months now, I feel like a new person and feel better than I have in years. The brothers here have been very supportive and I feel like I have been reborn. The cravings for alcohol is very tolerable and I don't have the cravings as I have had in past times. I know I owe a lot to Jehovah but I also want to recognize you as a brother that has helped me so much with my addition to alcohol. Your kind words got me started on the path that has led me to this junction in my life. Thank you ever so much.
With Christian Love,

Hi Bro

Excellent stuff!! Good man!! Really pleased

However as well as you have done and as pleased as I am for you I warn you. DON'T GET COMPLACENT!!

2 months is excellent however bear in mind ONE drink, just ONE and you're back to square one. You could be dry for 25 years and it's still the same.

Don't get in the mindset "I haven't had a drink for ----- " Get in the mindset "I do not drink, I do not touch alcohol" that's the mindset you need!!Or you're in trouble.

Be aware Jehovah's proud of your efforts. Now you can build your relationship with him. Immerse yourself in the truth make him your rock. Then when trouble comes your way will Jehovah be your rock or will drink be your "rock"??

Jer 17:

8 "And he will certainly become like a tree planted by the waters, that sends out its roots right by the watercourse; and he will not see when heat comes, but his foliage will actually prove to be luxuriant. And in the year of drought he will not become anxious, nor will he leave off from producing fruit"


18 "I shall have affection for you, O Jehovah my strength.
 2 Jehovah is my crag and my stronghold and the Provider of escape for me.
My God is my rock. I shall take refuge in him,
My shield and my horn of salvation, my secure height"

Keep up the good work and keep in touch bro

Agape love to you and your family

Bro DW


I have many years of experience serving Jehovah . I have known Jehovah a long time and I have known his organization . I have been privileged to see great progress not only in my own personal relationship with my God and Father but within his organization. I am an avid reader of the bible and have been gifted by my Father with the indescribable privilege of being allowed to understand his own word.


The truth is all about scripture and logic. The two go hand in hand . There is not one bible verse that cannot be understood within the realms of human reasoning. Not one!! Why would it?? The bible is God's message to his creation . His creation who he made to understand things in a specific way. God is not stupid or unwise as to leave as a message then allow us to guess what it means or who he is. 1 Tim 2:3This is fine and acceptable in the sight of our Savior, God, 4whose will is that all sorts of people should be saved and come to an accurate knowledge of truth" Notice the expression "accurate knowledge".

The bible leaves signs of true christianity there are many. Jehovah's witnesses meet every single sign. One sign is the removal of false teachings that permeated the world soon after the apostles died. Jesus foretold this and he also foretold of the restoration of pure worship in the period known as the last days. The days we are currently living in. Jesus was a master of using illustrations he used an illustration to highlight this point Matt 13: "The Kingdom of the heavens may be likened to a man who sowed fine seed in his field. 25While men were sleeping, his enemy came and oversowed weeds in among the wheat and left. 26When the stalk sprouted and produced fruit, then the weeds also appeared. 27So the slaves of the master of the house came and said to him, ‘Master, did you not sow fine seed in your field? How, then, does it have weeds?’ 28He said to them, ‘An enemy, a man, did this.’ The slaves said to him, ‘Do you want us, then, to go out and collect them?’ 29He said, ‘No, for fear that while collecting the weeds, you uproot the wheat with them. 30Let both grow together until the harvest, and in the harvest season, I will tell the reapers: First collect the weeds and bind them in bundles to burn them up; then gather the wheat into my storehouse" Why did he speak in illustrations? Matt 13:10So the disciples came and said to him: “Why do you speak to them by the use of illustrations?” 11In reply he said: “To you it is granted to understand the sacred secrets of the Kingdom of the heavens, but to them it is not granted" The kingdom of the heavens is full of sacred secrets that Jesus reveals only to his followers. This privilege is open to all who are really willing to submit to God and his Christ in action not just in words. These are the ones God is looking for. Are you really one?? If so I encourage you to let Jehovah's witnesses show you what the Bible really teaches.

False religion is disgusting to God and to his true worshippers it is likened in the Bible to a harlot Rev 17:"I will show you the judgment upon the great harlot who sits on many waters, 2with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, whereas those who inhabit the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication" Whereas the bride of Christ is likened to a virgin Rev 14: 4"These are the ones who did not defile themselves with women; in fact, they are virgins" These are both used as spiritual terms here and show the importance of pure and clean worship for God's people.
