Christian Addiction Recovery

 

Do you have a serious addiction? Do you consider yourself addicted, even though you’re a committed Christian?
Can you be a Christian and be addicted to something?

We live in a stressful world. The desire to self-medicate is part of our sin nature. Satan promises that these harmless sins will help you escape from your troubles. But deep down, you know. This is something much deeper.

 

1. You find yourself going over and over again to the same habits. They promise relief and escape. They might be:

    • Food
    • Social Media/ Smartphones
    • Alcohol
    • Pornography
    • Shopping
    • Sex
    • Drugs
    • and more.

     

  • 2. After committing your addiction, you think you’ll find relief
  • but instead, part of you realizes that you’ve only dug yourself deeper in a hole.

 

  • 3. You never feel satisfied.
  • But instead feel empty.

 

  • 4. You’re stressed out.
  • Maybe your doctor has even told you that you need to change lifestyles.

  • Part of you still wants the status quo.

And you feel the void.

Do you need some hope? Let me share something with you that helped me. A Christian has an advantage to a non-Christian in this whole addiction recovery thing.

Here’s why being a Christian is different when it comes to addictions.

The rest of the world accepts their addiction for the temporary sense of relief it gives them. The alcoholic knows she’s an alcoholic, but it sure does help take her mind off of things for a couple hours. All addictions work this way.

But for a Christian? A Christian knows that this is just a facade. A Christian knows that in the end, these horrible habits only bring emptiness. They bring broken relationships. Discarded dreams. Sometimes they lead to divorce and death.

A Christian HUNGERS  for redemption. Because that’s one of the Holy Spirit’s jobs in their lives. Christian addiction recovery is entirely possible through the power of the Holy Spirit.

So while a Christian is stuck in these addictive habits, in the undercurrent of her mind, she knows she needs to get out. Quick.

That’s when I decided I could help. I could help Christians get out of their patterns of failure and into a productive life, full of hope and adoration of God. Because they already want to change!

We know that our souls are restless until they find rest in God. It’s how we are wired.

If you answered “YES!” to any of these 9 signs- You might be addicted- it’s time to get help. Time to fully trust in Christ.

There’s Hope.

You can figure out the patterns that are getting you in your sticky situations and create TRUE change. Broken relationships can be mended…through Christ.

You CAN renew your mind. And you can have daily victory over sin and reclaim your mind for Christ.

  1. Sarah, I think it is wonderful that you are doing this! I’m excited to check out the workbook when it is finished. It sounds like a great resource. Our church has been focusing for the last couple of years on being a “hospital” church – reaching out and providing resources to those hurting in our community. Anxiety and addictions are two major issues that our “freedom groups” have focused on. Keep me updated!

  2. What a great resource!! I love how you included food on the list…I can be an emotional eater, and it is something that I struggle with every once in a while. I know that this is going to be used to help many people!!

  3. Really great post! I just posted on how to overcome body dysmorphic disorder or an eating disorder on my blog and the feelings associated with these disorders and the steps to recovery are similar to the ones you discussed. Very informative 🙂
