Nationwide update (observation) . I've met CR grads that moved and told me many have decided that if alcohol was not their drug of choice its OK to drink, I would advise against this view, many addicts will relapse or become alcoholics if they decide to make this there conviction. The addiction recovery communities teach abstinence and CR has always taught that. Provs 6:27 one verse

we have a few planning on going to the CR convention in May . is there any info on this site about it yet?
hmullan on 4 years ago
We have had a few here too. Like you said, we are not the conscience of everyone. Each person has to make their own decisions taking into account not only how it will affect them but also others watching their example.
erotmil on 4 years ago
to clarify some CR grads are claiming they were never addicts, just that they were put through CR.
One guy says he was told to go to CR but just stopped smoking and using illegal drugs, now he can drink socially without ever getting drunk.
I am not the conscience of everyone they have their own, CR is just here to help where it can.

Congrads Tia !
Thanks for the comments about CR grads drinking socially again, its not just one person, its a trend .
People graduated years ago that drink may experience powerlessness to the drink again and they may not if they claim they do not get drunk then its hard to call it sin. Time will tell.
With an opiate addict taking a prescribed opiate for pain I have advised addicts they can cause themselves a relapse and should not do it, but some have done it anyway. One key there is the addict needs to tell the prescribing doctor that they are an addict. then the dose will only be for 7 days (short term) still the medication can spark the addict into a relapse .

Erotmil,
I would agree with Dink. Everything is possible but not everything beneficial. What are the benefits of me drinking again when it was drink that caused so much damage in my life. Why would I want to test God and the power He gave me to stop? This is not an act of faith and anything not done through faith is sin. So in the case of a recovering addict, it is sin to pick up again. What does anyone else think?
hmullan on 4 years ago
Tia.
Congratulations! That's fantastic. Keep on keeping on and sharing that good news. cheesey cheesey
Dink on 4 years ago
Congratulations Tia!Much continued success in Christ.

You are correct, drinking is not sin, but there is very fine line with drinking and drunkenness, especially for former C.R. members. Remember, as addicts and alcoholics we are in recovery for the rest of our lives, so why take the risk. This graduate seems to have lost all sensitivity to where drinking can lead them to. Ice cold water and kool-aid are great alternatives. Satan is very patient, and this person will most likely experience drunkenness again. I'm just saying.
Tia on 4 years ago
Good news to share. I graduated from the CR Ministry this past Sunday.
