“No one is a full-blown addict.”
That unusual assertion is offered by Susan Farmer, with the Savannah NewDay Counseling Center of Savannah, Georgia. Farmer’s point is that for every addict, there is still room for things to progress even further into his disease.
What it took to satisfy the addict’s lust a year ago no longer does. He craves for more. Scripture offers the perfect analogy for every addict: “The gold has lost its luster” (Lamentations 4:1).
The answer is to get off the crazy train before you fall off. And the time to do that is now.
Recovery Step: The addict always craves more. As the SA “white book” says, “The only way we knew to be free of it was to do it.” But every addict knows that the pleasure of the moment does not last; the cure becomes the disease. The solution? Get in recovery today.
