    When Alcohol Becomes a Hiding Place

    in Motivation

    The last season the show aired, I spoke on how sex can become a hiding place for many people. In this show I want to touch on how alcohol can also be used as a coping mechanism to deal with major pain, disappointment, shame, etc. So many people drink alcohol and do not realize that they are drinking it for far deeper reasons than to just "get tipsy" or because the taste is enjoyed.


    I just want to point out that a person does not necessarily have to classified as an alchoholic to have an alchohol problem. So many people are able to function pretty well with alchohol and other drugs. They are able to hide it well and carry on with their external lives as if nothing is wrong. Sometimes others, especially close loved ones, are able to tell that something is wrong, but are not always able to pinpoint the causes and the true depth of the issue.


    I wanted to speak on this because I have experienced this very destructive secret life. This may help someone who is currently struggling or someone who might think they know someone who is. 


    According to the National Institute on Alchohol Abuse and Alcoholism, in the United States nearly 88,000 people die annually (approximately 62,000 men and 26,000 women). Alcohol is the 3rd leading cause of death in the US. Therefore, this is a serious thing and it needs to be addressed. God does not intend for us to suffer in this way.

    There is no hiding place

    in Religion

    The call of God is both mysterious and frightening. Anyone who has truly been called can attest to this. First of all when He calls you , you are utterly unqualified and most likely looking in the opposite direction. But if He called you and preordained you, there is no hiding place.

    When Sex Becomes a Hiding Place

    in Self Help

    I think that a lot of times people do not realize they are hiding. Hiding many times from rejection, pain, anger, sadness, loss, but most of all hiding from themselves. I spent my whole life until recently hiding from myself because I did not like who I was and the pain that came with my life (still a process). 


    I know that drugs (including alchohol) are many times things people seek out when they want to mask pain and not face reality. Drugs also offers that "high" that releases pleasure, but it never lasts and then you find yourself going back for more. The scary thing is that after some time the same amount no longer works and you have to continue to increase the amount.


    Sex is the same way. It is something that is not talked about in this way because of the stigma and shame that comes with it esepcially for females. I wanted to touch on how so many people use sex as a place to hide from themselves. A place to find temporary happiness, pleasure, false sense of love, and acceptance.


    Matthew 11:28 " Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."


    Phippians 4:6,7 "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
