With these prayers for quitting smoking and drinking, you or the person you love will recover and come out of slavery and the bother of addiction, whether we are talking about alcoholism, beer, cigarettes, chemical substances, games, or other sins of the world.
Prayer to stop drinking
Our Lord Jesus Christ, I find myself in the painful need of bothering you so that you can help (name of the person). A person I love recovering from the addiction of alcoholism, since drinking, can kill him from one moment to the next without me being able to do anything to avoid it.
Lord, he (name) has tried many times to stop this strong addiction that he has with drinking, but he did not succeed.
Besides, every day I see immersed in alcoholism and unable to get out of this nightmare into which he has rushed and has also engaged family, friends, and everyone who loves and appreciates him.
Lord my Saint, I beg you to help us, I pray this prayer to make him ( name) stop drinking because we can no longer do it alone.
Prayer to stop smoking
God, I have the terrible addiction to tobacco, and I no longer know what to do, which medicines to take to get rid of it before it is too late.
Lord Jesus, I know that you have the power to cure me, with your goodness and power, of the addiction to smoke and to take me out of the problem I threw myself into without a parachute. I am at the bottom of the cliff.
Tobacco gave me great pleasure and relief at times when I felt that no one around me and no one understood me when after a while, I realized very late the evil that was making this habit in me. I want to remedy it as soon as possible.
I await your intervention with the promise to use your infinite power of love and healing of people, my Holy Beloved Father.
I have been a disgrace as a son. However, I ask you to help me to organize my life, how to resume the path of good, recovering quality of life, health, family, and friends, before it is too late.
Prayer for my husband to quit drinking
My beloved and honored heavenly father, I no longer know what else to do, and this despair is killing our lives. My husband (to say his name) does not stop drinking and has given up his duties as a father, a husband, and a man worthy of living in society.
I have been on the verge of giving up several times, but our children (say their names), my solidarity, and the life we had together did not let me do that.
That is why I am addressing the Lord Christ, and I ask you to help us in this painful time we are going through.
Because I don’t want to lose my marriage, nor the wonderful man I married, and my children want to have a father who gives strength, example, and support in their lives.
I trust that the Lord will help my husband (say his name) to get out of this barrier of drinking, this addiction to alcohol, and then we will be a happier family again and have more love for each other than we ever had.
