Listen - Might Be Life Changing To Those Who Think 12-Step Is The Answer A great discussion! I have been attending SAA and OA for many years. However, after the Lord worked a miracle in me (Salvation), I have slowly begun to see 12-step essentially sets up another religion in your life and this is idolatry. In my group, it is common for people to gently scoff when someone enters the group and mentions that God did not cure their addiction. The reality is few people are actually exposed to the real Gospel, even in the Bible Belt, and true biblical repentance isnâ€™t taught. In fact, sin is hardly mentioned. So when someone claims that praying to God didnâ€™t help them, they are actually admitting their version of therapeutic moralistic deism didnâ€™t work. Of course it didnâ€™t - itâ€™s a false Gospel. Anyway, please go to the Apologia radio website and sign up to their Academy. Learn, bath in the real gospel and biblical truth. God is faithful - He will deal with you exactly where you are at.
Great Sermon! So you cannot be saved as long as you do drugs? I pray for forgiveness, but no matter how hard i try, i cannot quit. Am i lost? I asked Jesus into my life countless times.

Useful information Especially the part about not quitting alcohol quickly otherwise can lead to death. I tried to counsel people on quitting smoking, but their life is so stressful that they need to smoke, or they go insane. Maybe there is no cure for such a situation.
