Addiction: the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, as narcotics, to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma.
Welcome back folks. We hope that everyone enjoyed a great Christmas and that your New Year is off to a productive start.
Before the holidays we were discussing “addiction” and that’s where we will pick up this time.
Remember, addiction isn’t the occasional weekend use or drunk. Addiction involves much more frequent use.
As was stated, living in our addiction is counterproductive. This leads to the unmanageability of our lives. Having a drink or using just to loosen up or to feel like we fit in normally lands us in more trouble and with more problems than we had in the first place. Yet, we still to do it. We have to-because we are addicted.
The fact that our addiction is persistent keeps us in bondage to that unmanageable lifestyle. No matter how many promises we make or how much trouble we get into, the compulsion will continue to rise up and we will give in to it. Until we overcome our addiction and the underlying reason(s) that we use, we will be a slave to it.
Simple, just not easy. That’s where we will pick it up next time.
Join us again soon.
Until then ……. be sure to tell a friend about us.
Thanks for visiting us – come back soon.
Remember: “It is what it is and “it ain’t nothing but a thing!”
