When Jesus was in the wilderness being tempted this is how it went:  (1) Satan tempted him with untrue words.  (2) Jesus replied with The Truth every time – scriptures from what God says.

I copy  Jesus in this.  I like to respond to my troubles by figuring out what Truth of God neutralizes the lies that I’m believing that are giving me emotional pain. Then I meditate on the Truth until my pain goes away.  This works better than a bourbon on the rocks to relieve my emotional pain.   Although I have used bourbon as a crutch through the years.  But it has lots of other troubles associated with it.  Jesus’ way is better.  But I don’t think alcohol is always wrong for us.
