Reasons Why I Don’t Drink Alcohol
It is not a sin
I admit that sometimes I am tempted to drink, but I don’t. I know it wouldn’t be only a cup of wine or social drinking; I’d medicate myself with alcohol. I have no doubt whatsoever that I’d become an alcoholic.
It’s a temptation, but not because drinking is a sin.
A few years ago, I researched the theme of wine in the Bible. After reading several books on both sides, I concluded it wasn’t a sin. It asks for moderation; if you can’t be moderate, then abstain from it. Plus, why risk confusing your mind? Mine is already messed up; I don’t need a drop of alcohol to make it worse.
Many people drink to break the ice and to have fun. Well, due to my personality, I do break the ice and have fun naturally. I have no idea what effect it would have on me, to be honest. And I don’t want to know — I want to be in control of my words and actions at all times!
What about you? Why do you or don’t you drink?
