ADDICTION FROM GODS PERSPECTIVE
Romans 6 v 16 Don't you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves ,you are slaves of the one you obey - whether you are slaves to sin ,which leads to death,or to obedience ,which leads to righteousness?
Addiction is a Spiritual Disease , like Sin it enslaves you ! Once it becomes your master you are its slave.Addiction now controls and owns you ! Making it a false God and that's how addiction becomes a sin. Your true Master is your Creator the one True God .Think about it like this your Drug of Choice is now your false God .You will do whatever your master commands . Their is no limit too how far you are willing to go to please your master. He tells you when to eat , sleep, steal, lie, cheat ,and give up everything to please Him. If you try to escape His control he will make you physically sick and he will relentlessly torture you until you give in .There is only one true way to complete freedom and that is treating the Spiritual part of you by committing Step One and surrender to God. He and He alone can can and will set you free.
