Once you learn what you should not say, you must go to the next level where you learn what you should say.
Your words form your identity, and your words are connected to your identity. As long as you keep saying that you are an alcoholic, you will be an alcoholic. Your words form an inner image within you, and your words are connected to who you are. What you have said in the past is what you have become today.
You will never enjoy the freedom that God wants you to have until you change your vocabulary and eliminate death from coming out of your mouth.
