How To Effortlessly Break Out Of Addictions by unstoppable51(m): 3:01pm On Mar 23, 2019
From FeedMeJesus.com

In real life people are addicted to a whole lot of things; smoking, alcohol, drugs, gambling, pornography and so on. Although some of these lifestyles are not directly spelt out as sin in the scriptures but as addictions they have ruined individuals, families, businesses etc.

If you are struggling with any form of addiction today or know someone who is, let this inspire hope in your heart and help you to effortlessly break out and overcome whatever it is that seems to have taken a hold of you.

So how can one easily break out of addictions?


First, you need to understand that addictions are only as powerful as you view them in your mind. Drugs, cigarettes, alcohol and so on do not on their own have the ability to control and dominate you completely.

You give them that much power when you accord them much importance in your mind. The real battle is in your mind. This is why the Bible pointed out the renewal of the mind as the number one way to radically transform our lives.

(Rom 12:2) And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

So if you are ever going to break out of them, you need to start viewing them as “mere” substances or activities and not some powerful stuff you can’t do without. That is how to begin your journey to victory.

Secondly, consider creating or partnering in a system that will put an end to your money problems rather than going for temporal solutions. For instance, gambling addiction is caused and fuelled by money problems. The lack of money is a long term problem that temporal solutions such as gambling cannot really put an end to.

To ultimately deal with the gambling addiction, you will need to go for other real alternatives that are capable of generating money for you. This is where learning and starting your own business no matter how little it is or working for an already existing one comes in.

Such properly gotten money has a way of naturally boosting your confidence and self esteem to the point gambling would appear as a waste of time and resources to you.

Consider developing a business plan (you can even ask people to help you do this) and submitting it to different micro-finance banks, entrepreneurship organizations, churches and as well share your ideas with family and friends to help you raise some capital to start.

Thirdly, get out of toxic relationships. Toxic relationships and people here are not only those who introduce you to all kinds of “latest” sex movies, drugs and drinks so you could always get high with them. They are also those who take pleasure in constantly tearing you down emotionally. Those who always make you feel like your life is meaningless and that you can never amount to anything in life. Stay very far away from them as possible, they are not worth having around you.

I know lots of people who got into one addiction or the other because people they value and cherish so much hurt their emotions not just once but countless number of times. Let the guys you roll with be positive people who constantly builds you up for good.

Lastly, enrich your mind with the Word of God and be filled with the Spirit. In his admonition to the Galatians, apostle Paul puts it this way.

(Gal 5:16) This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

Addiction is a lust of the flesh that the Spirit of God can help us overcome if we will let Him. Part of how we let Him do this in us is by deliberately choosing to saturate our minds with the Word of God.

The Word of God here is not just anything people pick out of the Bible to use to threaten, crush and put us in bondage to fear. No! The Word here is the true Gospel of the grace of God revealed in His Son Jesus which is able to build us up spiritually.

You can easily find this on FEEDMEJESUS and other Christocentric websites that are committed to helping you learn and enjoy the finished works of Christ right here on the earth.

I hope this blesses you.

Glory to God!

Best way is to be consciously aware of those addictions

Honesty to oneself about stoping is also important.

Once an addict, always an addict!!!

If you know, you know!!!

You could withdraw for a while, but then relapse when there is a stimulating factor.

WHEN YOU REALIZE THAT YOU ARE AN ADDICT, AND YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOUR ADDICTION IS A PROBLEM, BEST YOU CAN DO IS TO GRADUALLY WITHDRAW FROM THE PROBLEM IF YOU CAN. TALK TO CLOSE FRIENDS AND USE THE INTERNET TO FIND PEOPLE BATTLING LIKE YOU SO THAT YOU CAN WIN OVER THE PROBLEM TOGETHER.

Idleness and 'aloneness', the most potent fuels of addictions so far. Experience has taught me this and one sure way to healing lies in engaging both the mind and the hands in productive activities. You will forget those things trust me.

Just as the writer rightfully said, breaking out of any addiction is the most easiest thing one can do, firstly just note that those addictions doesn’t have control over you but rather you do have control over those addictions. Once your mind is been positioned on that, then the rest should be an histroy. I used to be a chronic smoker, the moment I realize that I have control over this I decided to decipline myself and I took control over the situation.

It's easier said than done. It's easier to be a coach than a player. It's safer being the doctor than the patient.


Undermining addiction clearly shows the writer's poor understanding of it. Once an addition becomes compulsive, it becomes the most difficult thing to let go of.

For me, the only therapeutic measure to overcome addition is "Long Term Inaccessibility". Once you deny yourself or you're denied access to that thing you're addicted to for a very long time, the part of the brain responsible for the compulsive addiction becomes renewed, and there's every likelihood there won't be a relapse.


If you like, pray as long as you can, so long that thing you're addicted to is within your reach, you're likely to sneak back doing it.

What most persons don't realize is this.

If you are a smoker, the fact that you become born again does not mean you won't smoke after the alter call in church.

You will still for a while until the light you have received (word from the Bible not Pastor) shines bright enough to quench the desire for such.

It's a journey, you are going to do things you hate and Satan will plague you with it.

It is your faith and the desired result that will keep you going.

My point. Quiting addiction is not automatic. One should not border much about it. Just keep eating the Word and other relevant book.

I once advocated you can smoke while reading the Bible if you have always been a smoker.

All it will take is a word from the Bible confirming why you need to stop and that reason it gives you will make you never go near it again.

Keep deceiving yourself.
The only addition you need to break is the addiction to a God created by Rome.

Shut up your mouth, I have done everything from Cigarettes, Marijuana to Drugs to the extent I was a dealer. When I made up my mind to quit I did and for a year now I have been clean. If someone decides to quit it is easy to do, its only difficult when people are pressuring u to quit and u haven't made up your mind to quit
