Kele Sewell was shocked at what alcohol did to his life. It overshadowed his every waking moment.
“I was surrounded by alcohol,” Sewell said. “The refrigerator was full of beer, many times I remember drinking a full beer at 6 or 7 years old.”
Sewell struggled to make friends and deal with his alcoholic father.
“Looking back, I had a void in my life. I had a hole inside me. There was something missing. I didn’t know what it was. But, I was always pursuing that something to put inside there.”
Sewell quickly became an alcohol. At seventeen, he became addicted to prescription pain pills following an operation. Sewell successfully hid his addictions from everyone. He graduated from medical school. After marriage, a child, and then divorce, Sewell become despondent and was seconds away from committing suicide.
He went to an outpatient alcohol treatment center and there, found a Bible. He began devouring God’s word. Sewell soon accepted Jesus as his Savior. That was almost ten years ago.
“God set me free from the bondage and the slavery of addiction. I fully believe that I was demon possessed. I was doing things I didn’t want to do. And that’s gone. I’m free of that.”
