Research Shows Hope for Teen Drinkers/Addicts.
There is encouraging research revealing that teens who attend church, are much less likely to drink or use drugs.
Evidence reveals that teens who attend church enjoy a much better chance of not drinking or drugging. As much as 50%! Even more importantly, this even applies to those kids who are genetically predisposed to alcoholism and addictive tendencies. That’s great news.
This is not a faith based opinion there is strong research that shows that teens who are involved in religious or spiritual activities are less likely to do drugs or drink alcohol.
This research was conducted at three separate universities, BYU, Colorado, and Columbia University.
I know now, that I was spared and God saved my life. When I was a boy, I attended Bible studies in the summer and was a believer, but because of my alcoholism, I thought the Lord had forsaken me.
When I finally “came-to,” I was spared, and given an assignment, I believe; to carry this “message” to those who are still suffering. I owe my life to my reunification with God and realize now, he was carrying me all along. Without my faith, I don’t think I would have made it.
God bless. I love you guys
