Prayers up for this.

God loves a lullaby
In a mothers tears in the dead of night
Better than a Hallelujah sometimes.
God hears a drunkards cry,
The soldiers plea not to let him die
Better than a Hallelujah sometimes.

We pour out our miseries
God just hears a melody
Beautiful the mess we are
The honest cries of breaking hearts
Are better than a Hallelujah.

Praying.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Truly a blessing, thank you to those that pray for my son. You have my prayers as well.

Praying - I used to have some addictive behaviors such as chain smoking, drinking too much at bars, or compulsive computer or video game use which resulted in lost jobs and some trouble with family.

While I know they might not be equivalent to what was described here, I personally found that simple meditation for about 15-30 minutes involving relaxing self talk and a spiritual message (as opposed to merely trying to "force" myself to stop) where is was better able to set my personal boundaries and limits, and experience that a "spiritual high" is much more genuinely satisfying than misusing substances.

(I won't get into the theology behind this unless someone is interested due to my tendency to rant).
