Are drugs and alcohol a problem for you?

Getting drunk and getting high seems fun for a while. But eventually the fun ends. In this short book, you will read the stories of young adults who found their lives falling apart because of drugs and alcohol.

Do any of their comments sound familiar?

  • “I’d go on binges for days using alcohol and drugs, lots of ecstasy and some cocaine. I’m lucky I’m alive.”
  • “I started out with one beer. I thought I could control it. But I started getting drunk at parties every weekend.”
  • “My dad was great, but he was an alcoholic. My mom was addicted to cocaine. Us kids followed in the footsteps of our parents.”
  • “I tried to quit partying, but I wasn’t able to.”


The steps in Breaking Free are practical, and they work

If you are tired of the direction your life is headed, you can change. No matter what you have done, you can turn your life around. The six steps in this cross-cultural book are based on God’s word — the Bible. When you put them into practice, your life will begin to change.


Change won’t come overnight

Changing your habits and lifestyle will take time and hard work. But change will come. You will find the freedom that comes from defeating temptation. And you will find the freedom that comes from not being controlled by other people, drugs, or alcohol.
