I drink water and there is no alchol in it.
---Rev_Herb on 1/12/08

Just leave the sauce alone and you can't go wrong. Plain and simple. If you do not have intentions of getting drunk, just have a diet soda and call it a day. For those who insist on drinking, go ahead, do whatever makes you happy. Get drunk....telling you any different is not going to change anything with you anyway. But I will add this: alcohol is a demon. You are playing with Lucifer, himself, when you drink this firewater. It is no friend of yours, for sure. Beware!

I would not have a problem with a non-alcoholic drink as you have mentioned. But I also do not believe that a drink of alcohol on occasion is wrong either. Moderation is what we need to keep in mind.

Of course.Coke, sprite, coffee, teas all of these drinks are non alcoholic. We drink them everyday. Unless you are speaking of non alcoholic beer and other drinks. Why not? The alcohol is the culprit. If it has been removed, go ahead and indulge yourself.

There's lots of opinion here. How about what God has to say? Skip the trouble & use beverages that are already non-alcoholic. Elder Herb has the right idea drinking water, unless you are a missionary in a malaria infested country. That's when grape & fruit juices come in handy-1 Tim 5:23. Still no need to ferment.

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

It's acceptable to have a drink even if the alcohol is still in it.

Jesus's first miracle was making several hundred gallons of WINE--that's with 10-13% alcohol, not grape juice.

However, for those alcoholics in recovery, I've gathered it's NOT a good idea. Too many have told me they have tried them (beverages such as Sharp's and O'Doull's) with bad results.

I used to be an alcoholic twelve years ago. after becoming sober, I drank a o'douls, later I spoke to an aa member about it. He said it was considered a relapse. I was like, I didn't get drunk, and had no desire to get drunk. Later, I read the bible, and it said, it is a sin to be a drunkard. So I had not relapsed. Thank God. However, I have not drank anymore odouls. Also, who Jesus sets free is free indeed.
---Chris on 12/3/06 the labels very, very well. It can contain a low percentage of alcohol and legally be considered as "non alcoholic". As a chemical dependency counselor, I've seen many relapse because of this false impression. Why bother? What is the point?
---Annie on 11/7/06

Why bother having a "fake" non-alcoholic drink? Why not just have the real thing? And if you cannot have the real thing, then why not just have something you really really enjoy - maybe Lemonade or some other soft drink?
---Helen_5378 on 11/7/06

It is acceptable for some Christians to drink alcoholic drinks. The fake drinks are a waste. For a recovering alcoholic, they are a set-up for relapse.

Bless you Jack! :) I have often been tempted to drink the o doul's and stuff like that and I appreciate you telling us that even those can cause problems for recovering alcoholics; I won't bother now; God bless you for sharing that. :) Have a great day; Mary

Of course there is no booze so it is just soda,punch etc. But like some said becareful if it is at a party w/a mixed crowd & especially if U were an alcoholic back in the day- or if it could trigger that old taste & want for alcohol due to old familar tastes for any alcoholic brothers & sisters recovering out there. I never liked the taste of it even when a sinner but others w/that old weakness may.
---Jeanne on 11/6/06

There is nothing wrong with drinking alcohol. If you are prone to drunkeness than don't drink. It's that simple.
---Ryan on 11/6/06

Like Kool-ade? Be careful. Just make sure nothing else has been slipped in.
