Free from evil influence

To keep yourself free from drink try to realise to its fullest extent that you yourself are powerful and do not want to drink; that the craving is an obsession by some outside entity trying to make use of you to satisfy his lower appetites.

Try to awaken in yourself this knowledge and keep on saying to yourselfI do not want it. I will not have it. No one shall make me take it. Then fill yourself with the love of the Christ and keep on affirming that this love and this power and this help will keep you free from any evil influence.

Fill yourself so full of this thought of the Christ that no outside entity can come and tempt you.
