If you can’t quit, there is a reason why. If you don’t know the reason why, repent, then ask God why.
People say, “I can’t stop sinning, no one can.” My brother loves to say, “Which sin can’t you stop committing?” His point is, that we can stop drinking/drugs for an hour, 5 hours, maybe 5 days. If we can stop for 5 days, we can stop for 5 years.
The million-dollar question is… Are you willing to copy Jesus’ example of how to fight temptation for a full 5 years straight?
Second, satan will harass you. If he does it too much, pray that Jesus’ blood will cover you. Pray that it will cover your room. Pray that it will cover your life. Satan hates it when we think about the cross and pray about the blood Jesus shed for us.
Remember… satan is ripping into you with temptation, when you fully repent and pray about Jesus’ blood you are ripping into him. He does not like that at all. But please, fully repent before you use this technique.
Third, you can quit when you are confident that you will have light, joy, and purpose in your life. If you read a bunch of my articles you will see, there are a lot of things we need to do to quit. It is important to want and to believe that you will have light, joy, and purpose in your life when you declare WWIII on drinking/drugs. It is important to fully believe while you are trying to quit that great things will happen because of quitting. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Finally, believe, go to war daily, and consider praying:
“Father, please show me why I can’t quit.”
Sooner or later, He will make it clear to you what the problem is.
