Solutions to Overcoming Addiction

When you think of the word addiction, the first thing that comes to your mind may be alcohol or drugs. However, there are many other types of addictions that you may experience, including addictions to food, cigarettes, shopping, gambling and many other things.

These addictions seem to have power of their own. They can control your thoughts, actions, and your very life, if you let them.
 
If you think you might be suffering from an addiction, it’s great to know that there are techniques you can use every day to help you overcome your addictions and take back control of your life.
 
Here are some helpful solutions:
 
1.    Have faith. In order to overcome addiction, the first thing you need is faith. Faith has been described as the “hope of things unseen.” This means you should have hope for tomorrow, recovery, and success.
 
  • Hope can bring you through challenging times and allow you to see that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
  • Believe in a greater power. Having faith can also mean believing in something bigger than you, like God. If you have nothing to believe in, it may prove quite difficult to win the war against your addiction.
  • It’s never too late to reconnect with your faith.
2.    Develop a courageous attitude. Courage will help you face your addiction and then battle it through, regardless of what that addiction is. Your sense of courage is stronger than you probably know! Look deep within yourself to find it and bring it out.
 
3.    Draw on your inner strength. Like courage, we all have an inner strength that makes us stronger than we realize. When you draw on your inner strength you have greater power to face challenges and overcome them.
 
4.    Be patient and persevere. Patience and perseverance will help carry you through the long journey to recovery. It takes time to overcome an addiction, but it can be done.
 
  • Take things one day at a time and fully believe that things will get better.
     
  • Keep your end goal in mind and persist in your efforts to get there.
     
  • If you can’t take it one day at a time, then begin with one hour at a time. Hours will become days, days will become weeks, and before you know it, you’re cured of the addiction that plagued you.
5.    Request help and support. Support from your friends, family members, neighbors, clergy, coworkers, social groups, or any other type of support system is crucial to your recovery.

 
  • There are likely many support groups – both online and in-person – that focus on your particular addiction. Seek out this type of support group. You’ll find specialists in overcoming your specific addiction, as well as those who’ve experienced your pain.

     
  • Don’t forget to support yourself! Give yourself rewards at different milestones of your recovery.
In order to succeed at your endeavors, it’s important to understand that you do have an addiction. Once you’ve accepted this, you’ll be ready to take the necessary steps to achieve power over your addiction and take back your life.
 
Yes, overcoming an addiction is a challenging task. However, when you use these solutions to help you each day, success can be yours!

I cried to God for years and asked him to free me from the slavery of using force in my working environment and everything that is financial related. Of course I didn’t use the exact words then, but I experienced the slavery of working day and night and to still bring in only a small and very limited amount of money each month. I know what that Read more...
