  1. Hi All, I'll try to keep this brief but I'm basically posting this for those in need of help in relation to alcohol/drugs/addiction with the aim of helping those in need. My story in a nutshell: I grew up in your typical punjabi cultured family. My mum has always been spiritual and dad has always been a drinker. My mum had me going to the Gurdwara from a young age and the knowledge has always been instilled within me. Unfortunately, as I grew older my crowd changed. I did well in terms of achieving a degree and a good job but I had also drank heavily during my uni years and star

  4. I am a 28 year old Sikh girl. I used to drink alcohol but I quit, I used to eat meat but I quit. I feel bad eating animals now and I know in our religion it’s preferred I don’t eat meat. I have never ever treated someone unequally or have had ego problems. I do my work honestly and help the community. I have a soft heart. I just really regret some decisions I made before which makes me feel like I’ll be put in an endless cycle again. I lost my virginity before marriage and I’ve been regretting it everyday. I don’t know how I can make up for this or what I can do to better practice my religion.

    accidentaly drank alcohol

    Yesterday, I went to a school party. At the bar i asked for non-alcoholic drink as I am amritdhari, But I was accidentaly given a beer containing 5% alcohol. I swear to God, I didn't like the taste and after tasting it i threw it away. Just after that, people started telling that I was turning red and i also felt myself uncomfortable. maybe because i hadn't eaten anything earlier. My question is that is accidental or minimal consumption of alcohol a sin? Will i have to present myself in front of the 5 pyare and get rebaptised again? are non-alcohol beers also prohibited?

  11. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh It has recently come to my notice that vanilla essence and/or vanilla extract (which is a widely used product in ice creams, chocolates, cookies, cereals, etc.) contains alcohol/ethanol. Vanilla extract is made with vanilla pods in a solution of ethanol and water. So, is it ok from Amritdharis to consume foods that contain vanilla essence?

    Craving Alcohol

    I used to be a mona sikh. I used to go clubbing and drinking a couple of times a month, however I never drank at home, I only used to drink if I was going to a club. I always had a belief in Sikhi. Whenever I hit a tough time in my life I would go to the gurdwara more often and pray to god. When times were good I would stop going to the gurdwara and question if god exists. I was off work for nearly two years due to an injury that was difficult to diagnose. During those two years I hit many lows, got depressed and wondered if I would ever get better. One day I was so low that I bowed in front

    Sat sri akal sangat I am really confused, I came from a pre wedding party today and to see how many men in dastars who were off their rocker indulging in whiskey but the topic on the table was smoking is bad (which i understand) but not a bad word of sharab?, it really fueled me Because in my eyes they are not worthy how having a dastar or being a singh alltogether, they made it out as if the more you drink the more of a shere u are why this mentality?
