Addiction is similar to sickness. Actually, it is sickness. The difference between physical sickness and addiction is that addiction is a sickness of the mind.
The mind can be affected by various things ranging from bad associations to negative thoughts. Sometimes, it can be a spiritual attack from your enemies. This is why you should not take it for granted.
Once you begin to notice this in your son, start a series of midnight prayers.
Using this prayer, you will wage war against the negative energy in your son’s mind, which might have led or contributed to the extreme addiction to alcoholism
Midnight is the best time to say this prayer because it is when your son’s defense is down the most. Therefore, it will be easy for the prayer to penetrate his mind and begin to work immediately.
You can say this prayer as many times as you may need.

Your son needs you now more than ever, even though he may not ask for help or admit that he has a drinking problem.
Show him this Bible verse:
“Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in love immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.” — Romans 13:13-14.

Please, allow my son (say the son’s name) to have strength within his heart to be able to stop alcohol addiction, to be able to leave bad company and to have the strength to move forward.
Don’t let him give up in the face of temptation, don’t let him give up in the face of bad company, don’t let him give up for anything in this world.
Father God, please remove drinking from my son’s life, now and forevermore. Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
