An estimated two thirds of the American population consume alcohol, but half of all the alcohol consumed in the country is consumed by only 10 percent of drinkers. Having a spouse with an alcohol addiction experience fear for their future, family, and safety.

Why does it start?
• Peer pressure
• Coping mechanism for stress, anxiety or depression
• Family gene
• Inadvertently by parents behavior

Many people who attempt to stop drinking on their own go through a gradual process. However, others who have used their faith just as Mr. Zola, have seen results instantly. Read now Mr. Zola’s story:

I lived a life of regretI led a busy life that was characterized by excessive alcohol intake. I bought expensive clothes, expensive alcohol and had many friends. I could not balance my job and my busy lifestyle. I was eventually fired after working for seven years. All the friends I had left me, I felt like a loser, with nothing to show for the years I had been working.

Two years later Zola found another job.

I managed to save money and got married. However, I went back to my old ways. I neglected my wife and didn’t provide for her. Our marriage crumbled and we got divorced a year later. I then lost my second job the same way I lost the first one. That’s when I slipped into depression and developed suicidal thoughts.

The first time, I wanted to hang myself, however, I didn’t have the courage to do so. Months later I filled the bathtub with water with the intention of drowning myself, but immediately jumped out when I started experiencing breathing problems. I lived a life of regret until I decided to attend services at The Universal Church with my mother.

I stopped drinking alcohol on the first day I went to church and I gave my life to Jesus. I partnered with someone and we are now working on a big project for transport infrastructure development. My finances improved and I have made peace with my past. Most of all, I no longer feel lonely, depressed or suicidal because God has filled my cup to the brim.
