This is my last peg, when this bottle is over I will stop drinking, no more drinking in my life, this is my last puff. All the persons who are addicted to alcohol or drugs are usually says these dialogues when they are in front of the bottle. It is a hard thing to a addict to stop the habit of drunkenness or any other bad habit. The person who is an alcohol or drug addict wants to get away from his/her bad habit but he/she cannot do it because of the various circumstances. Many of the developed country casual usage of alcohol is there. But the third world countries or the countries are in development had many persons who are addicted to drugs or alcohol. This kind of addiction will affect all the family and also the society. The drunkards are always without any role in the society. These persons always face a kind of avoidance from the friends and the family. Here the problem is even though these persons want to get away with this habit they are not able to do it. Sometimes early morning they will take the decision that today they will not take liquor or cigarette or any other drugs, but this decision of theirs will not last much. What will be reason behind this?
Very often people are taking the drugs or alcohol in evening. In the evening our bodies will be tired and there is always our body needs some kind of relaxation. Those people who had a heavy schedule in the morning more than the mind their bodies will be taking control of them. This will lead them to the habit of habitual drinking which end up in an addiction. Here the point is we must give the body rest more than consuming alcohol or any other drinks it is better to engaged in an other entertainments which will give the body rest. After the work instead of going to the company of friends if a person can go to his/her own home it will be a great thing for his/her family. He/she can listen to their children and can enjoy the company of them. It will be a great help to those children. Also he/she can be in the company of the spouse which will make strong their marital bond.
Now those who are addicted to these kinds of practice. Any bad habits we are addicted to when we are changing it we must compensate it with some other good habits which can help the person lead a good moral life. For Example instead of going to the party he can go to home and have prayer with their family. Listen to their children or help the spouse in the kitchen, etc. Otherwise the devil is always there to give temptation once our bodies are weak we will be tempted to do go with these kind of pleasures. Our bodies will always seek pleasure, once we satisfy with these kinds of pleasure it will always ask for it. So a change of habit is necessary.
All the more prayer can help a person to get rid of all these habits. A person who is always praying the temptations will be less. The Holy Spirit is the great help for every one of us. He is the real helper who can help us in all our weakness. When one take the decision to cut away with the sin always seek the help of the Holy Spirit. He will help you to overcome the temptations which can come across in your life.
