According to Jimmy Monaghan from Celebrate Recovery (who has a Clinical MA in Counseling Psychology), addiction is the “occupying of oneself with, or involving oneself in, something habitual or compulsive. Engaging in a behavior, or the ingestion of a substance, that creates life unmanageability.” Addiction, at its root, is a spiritual issue and a bad habit. It is an act of rebellion which has become habitual and ritualistic which over time can develop into a physical dependency. In this lesson you will learn more about the cycle of addiction and ways to heal and break free once and for all. To complete this lesson read the material in the white block, print and go through the scripture study, watch the video teachings, and answer the questions at the end for further discussion in your next counseling session.
