I need help in overcoming addiction

I'm not sure if we are allowed to request prayers for ourselves but this is also for my family. I'm a mom of 4 children and I'm married.

I've been addicted to alcohol since I was sixteen. I've tried all different courses of treatment but I always end back at square one. I've turned my problems over to God but I must be doing something wrong. My drinking is really starting to cause problems in my marriage.

My dad committed suicide a year ago after battling alcoholism all his life.

I know this isn't the course God wanted me to be on. I started college (I'm 36) and I'm really proud of that. I eventually want to be a nurse but I want to be a good nurse not a hungover one.

My mom always said if two or more pray for the same concern, God will answer.

I want to be sober more than anything, I want my kids (17, 13, 7 and 2) to not have to worry about me anymore. Or to hear the fights it causes.

Any prayers would be trmendously appreciated

God Bless you all, Lauren
