I really dont know why is drink to excess. Once i start i cant stop. very rarely in can. I dont have any particular problems at the moment, my problems arise when I drink and the consequnces after this.satbinderji,
If I may ask , why do you drink?
If you are just 'drinking too much' then dealing with that is perhaps easier than for other reasons,
If you are drinking to reach oblivion, due to external pressures or life problems, you may find that dealing with the problems makes life easier to bear, and the need to run to oblivion is lessened. Also, if this is the reason, you will find yourself in no position to deal with the problems if you are constantly hungover.
Although I as a Sikh, of course accept the power of prayer and remembering the creator, try and focus as well on the very real consequences of your drinking with regards to you and your family, and the effect it may have on compounding any problems that are making you drink.
Look forget meat, that has nothing to do with reading Japji. You can read Japji any time.I really dont know why is drink to excess. Once i start i cant stop. very rarely in can. I dont have any particular problems at the moment, my problems arise when I drink and the consequnces after this.

Also If i have eaten meat in the day should i not read the bani in the evening???
I think your right.Look forget meat, that has nothing to do with reading Japji. You can read Japji any time.
Your main problem sounds like Alcohol and it sounds like you are an Alcoholic. It is a common problem amongst Sikhs.
The only thing I have seen work for Sikhs has been Alcoholics Anonymous. There are many Sikhs who are members there. Many Sikhs I know who have become Amritdhari as a result of going to AA.
Go to AA and stop drinking. Then worry about Sikhi.
Like I said I know lots of Sikhs who have gone to AA and now lead happy lives.
Satbinder Singh ji you may also try "Nux Vomica" a Homeopathic remedy. See your local Boots store. It is pretty cheap and try tincture or 3x, 6x strenghts and see if these take your craving away.Thank you guys alot. Means alot.
Im going tommorow in Kensington London.
From my understanding of the AA programme, it is about a Higher Power of YOUR UNDERSTANDING!I have trie AA in the past ( about 3 years ) drinking on off then.
I always felt a christian slant to it and felt uncomfortable. I only ever met one other sikh guy in 3 years. BUt i may go back Randip
