Steps to Overcome Addiction

Steps to Overcome Addiction

If you are trying to break free from addiction to illicit drugs, nicotine, alcohol, prescription medications, pornography, gambling, video games, internet surfing, watching TV, shopping, stealing, food, sugar, working, exercising or any other addiction, you have to take the following spiritual steps:

Get Saved
Begin your battle against addiction by getting saved so that you can put on the spiritual helmet of salvation. All you need to put on this helmet of salvation is to say with your mouth that "Jesus Christ is Lord" and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead when He died for our sins and you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)

The next thing you have to do is to Pray without ceasing. (1 Thessalonians 5:17) 

As you pray, use Bible verses since The sword of the spirit is the word of God. (Ephesians 6:17)  Scriptures that you can use to pray for yourself include the following: Direct my steps by Your word O God and do not let sin dominate me and my life. (Psalm 119:133)

Have Faith
As you pray ensure that you have faith that God can help you overcome the addiction. Since Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1) pray while seeing yourself with your mind's eye delivered from the addiction.
