Addiction doesn’t have to be just a drug and/or alcohol. It can be an activity of something that you constantly do compulsively. Whether it’s sex, OCD, stalking, etc. -It’s all unhealthy! Have you ever tried seeking someone in the church to help heal that addiction? Sometimes we miss the need for the healing, because we either feel that God won’t forgive us for how big the sin is. Maybe even there’s a root of a problem that lead you into the addiction.
First, forgive yourself and know that everyone goes through things. We might not tell the entire story of how we lead ourselves to be where we are, but there is a way out. When you choose to lean on the “temporary fix”, it only breaks you more to the point that the addiction becomes out of your control.
Seek professional help. Your addiction might not be a materialistic thing, but a need of some intangible element that you cannot seem to find (joy, peace, happiness, etc.). Don’t ever feel like your willingness to start over and ask God for forgiveness is out of reach. God loves us, no matter how terrible we might be about certain situations. It starts with healing for yourself. God loves those who are victims of addiction and hopelessness.
