Russian Roulette is a potentially lethal game of chance in which a “player” places a single round in a revolver, spins the cylinder, places the muzzle against his head, and pulls the trigger. “Russian” refers to the supposed country of origin, and roulette to the element of risk-taking and the spinning of the revolver’s cylinder being reminiscent of spinning a roulette wheel. ~ Wikipedia
It is not very likely that you would put a gun to your head and pull a trigger, even though 5 of 6 chambers are empty. But many will try addictive substances like alcohol and drugs and believe they can beat the odds. What if they don’t? They will spend the rest of their lives in agony, struggling to overcome what few are able to do. This fact was brought home after watching a show on Netflix called Addicted.
If you can stomach it, watch the second show on Kevin and alcoholism. It shows the harsh reality of an addict.
Substance abuse is like playing Russian roulette—it can cost you your life. Conscientious Christians need to know that our bodies are not our own to abuse in any way—they belong to God. (from Hope for the Heart Biblical Counseling Library © 2006 by Hope for the Heart.)
When you commit your life to glorifying God in your body, your chances of addiction to substances greatly improves!
