Al Anon works for the family & friends of Alcoholics. For those who think it can't happen to them... you will get over the shock when it does. But you won't be the same. It can start when they are 13 yrs old or 17 years old. Hopefefully you can try to prevent it. Sometimes you can't. But prayer can help. It is the challenge of challenges. Lots of tears. And you aren't alone.

Wine and secret

"Wine" has the same Hebrew Gematria (letters have numerical value) as the word for "secret." This is ambiguous. Have too much and all your secrets come out. Use it for a good purpose, and maybe the Divine Secret is revealed to you

Have you looked at the Jewish newspapers & weekly magazines lately? Wine ads literally start at the front of the newspaper & go through till the last page!
Maybe those ads can take a clue from cigarette ads & become few & far between.
It's a start!

Excellent and Needed

If ever a bad message was sent it was the vote in Colorado and Washington State to make Marijuana legal. Society will long be negatively affected by making it legal and our youth are ill served by the forces that promoted the vote, the Democ-rats. I enjoy a good glass of wine many evenings but that's in no way comparable to marijuana which is both a gateway and addictive drug. Shame!
