Internal pressure, confusion, anxiety together with other sins can provoke a
person to drink, to use narcotics… Psychologists, for example, determined
several character traits characteristic of "alcoholics." According to
data provided by V.T. Kondrashenko, some are easily hurt, are poorly prepared
for practical living, weak-willed; others — are overly sure of themselves,
vain, have difficulty with life’s misfortunes, stubbornly thirst for attention.
If psychotrauma is added to these character traits, the possibility of a
nervous breakdown is greatly increased.
But let us remind you, that the main reason for overuse of alcohol and
narcotics is conscious sin, and the Lord treats it by way of repentance.
Doctors and psychologists, medicinal preparations and psychocorrectional
methods (morally applicable) — are simply support, but no more.
