Not too many years ago, one used to frequently hear the comment, “Once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic.” Recognizing that refraining from drinking didn’t change the alcoholic personality.
Today, many people suffer from the ravages of alcohol without even suspecting where it’s coming from . The reason alcohol problems live past the usage of it is that evil spirits have come in, and they do not leave simply because one quits drinking.
You or your ancestors’ involvement in the use of drugs or alcohol opens the door for the demons to come in. Once the demons are in, they don’t really care if you drink anymore or not. The door has been opened and they’ve seized the opportunity to take up residency in their new home.
Many have thought, I’ve been dry for years, I don’t have any alcohol problems. That would be nice, however the problems of alcohol go much deeper than just drinking. Hence the adage of “Once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic.”
In fact, when you go to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting each of the members say, “I’m a recovering alcoholic” , a required statement of the members of an “AA” group.
Sadly, the statement is very true because even though the drinking may have stopped, the way they think, act, and treat their family, handle their job, or finances still give the loud testimony that they are “still alcoholics.”
If you or someone you know is an Alcoholic After Sobriety, or manifest any of the symptoms mentioned in this series, deliverance from evil spirits can change a life. Lifelong bondage and torment from alcohol and drugs can be ended. (For where the spirit of Christ is, there is Liberty) With deliverance and healing you can some day say, “I’m not an alcoholic anymore.” (Whom the Son sets free is free indeed.)
Yes even after you stop drinking, there are undoubtedly still alcoholic patterns lurking under the cloak of alleged sobriety.
Alcoholic Patterns are the personalities of demons that cause you to think like an alcoholic, act like an alcoholic, spend money like an alcoholic, treat your spouse and kids like an alcoholic, drive your car like an alcoholic, and even work like an alcoholic. These spirits manifest with certain patterns in your life and the lives of your descendants until dealt with in deliverance.
