21 signs you may have a drinking problem
 
Studies have shown that people often have cross-addictions (multiple addictions) and /or substitute one addiction for another when trying to recover. Check out these signs below to see if you may need help in the drinking arena.
 
By obormottel

Because addiction is complex, it’s not always clear for individuals with the condition, or for those around them, to know they’ve developed a drinking problem. In many cases, denial can keep a person from realizing their alcoholic tendencies even as it ruins their life and destroys their health.

True Teffilah Needs True Humility
 
By Yosef Hatzadik

Vatosef Esther vat'daber lifnei Hamelech vatipol lifnei raglav vateivk vatischanen lo. (8:3)

The gemara says that the word Hamelech in the megilla is referring to Hashem.

Hashem says about the Baal Gaava - a haughty person, "I and he cannot coexist in one place."

Kol haholech b'komah zekufa k'illui docheik raglei Hashechina - Whomever walks with an erect posture (i.e. an arrogant manner) it is as if he is pushing away Hashem's 'feet'.

If Esther wanted to be in Hashem's Presence and daven to Him properly, she had to achieve the trait of humility.

She totally negated herself before Hashem! Not only did she not 'walk erect' (komah zekufa), she fell before Hashem's 'feet' (and thereby brought close the "raglei Hashchinah")!
