At the age of 17, I took my first sip of alcohol, and from then on I was hooked. I would drink during my lunch breaks, and by the time I turned 19, I was binge-drinking every weekend. I knew that I was in a bad place, so I sought help and remained sober for a year. But all my progress went down the drain when I started gambling and playing on slot machines. Eventually, the alcohol addiction came back. I was continuously on and off the booze, and with one failed relationship after another, my life only went from bad to worse. I was depressed and contemplating suicide, until I came to the UCKG Help Centre. By going to the Friday sessions, I was encouraged to fight for my deliverance and freedom from alcohol addiction. Within a year, I was free from suicidal thoughts, depression and alcoholism. And on top of that, I am now happily married.
