Good Advice - If you are struggling with alcohol or drug addiction, or any other life-controlling problem, remove yourself from that environment. If you are really serious about changing your life, you are going to need to do everything you can to stay away from alcohol and drugs, and away from the people that use them. You are also going to need to find other people who are willing to help you and support you in your decision to change your life. If you have you burned a lot of bridges getting to where you are today, God can restore those relationships, but it's not going to happen overnight. Find the courage to tell others about your decision, and you will find someone that agrees and wants to help you.
