Alcoholism in 100 words

(1) When I drink, I can't stop. Powerless. Ain't managing my life.

(2) Left to my own devices, I drink even when I don't want to. Powerless. Ain't managing my life.

(3) Alcohol gave me a sham knock-off of God's grace. Unless I connect with God, I'll drink, because the Promised Land will always call to me in the desert.

(4) Separated from God, I start trying to rearrange the world around me to suit me. Cue collision. Cue failure. Cue resentment. Cue fear. Cue bedevilments. Help!

(5) Enter alcohol, stage left. BOOM.

Cheap grace, or real grace. Your choice.
