Baffling, cunning and confusing addictive thinking ruins lives.

Sunday, January 29, 2012


White knuckles wrapped around an empty whisky bottle, and the vacant gaze of a homeless alcoholic define the raw face of addiction and humanity’s fallen condition. In its vulgar extreme, addiction is easy to see, stripping man of dignity, reduced to an animal, driven by a single desire. But it is those subtle, cultured forms of addiction and compulsive behavior which are so difficult to discern. An alcoholic or drug addict quickly becomes socially isolated but subtle forms of addiction are able to flow quite happily along in the social current, and even be comfortable in the pews of our church.

Addiction is anything that has become stronger than your will power to change. Instead of you being in control, the addiction is all powerful and you feel a sense of helpless to do anything about it...for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him
