Prayer is all good for those who believe that God can help but we forget that almost as important is to hear what God has to say about addiction. Christians believe that the bible is the Word of God so reading it regularly can also be inspirational. A few good verses: “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” “Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.” "Do not be misled. Bad company corrupts good character." "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour"
