It’s possible to be addicted to any number of things. Food, relationships, music, routines. Addiction prevents you from thinking and freely making newly-informed decisions. Addictions make you unable to respond to the needs of the moment without thinking of loss to self. It defines gain in the negative.
Love, devotion, and commitment are thinking, freeing processes. They leave room to live and breathe, to accomplish good things, and to live lives of joy, service, and good health–lives free from fear and worry.
Faith is the antidote to addiction. It sometimes wrenches from our hands those things we think we can’t live without but that are destroying us physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. The wrenching is painful, but in the end we’re thankful.
