#RecoveringAddict

Would it be that we were all recovering addicts and willing to share our story’s. 

Because the truth be known we are all addicted to something, but we put a nicer spin on on them by labeling them as habits.

I do believe that to be addicted is to be human and that even in the most positive of things that our addiction(s) can take control of one’s life.

I further believe that the only means of overcoming addiction  (learning to live with might be a better way of wording it) is to relinquish control to what we recognize as our higher power and for me that is God.

But why is it important to make this recognition (of being addicted), I believe it is important because in most recovery circles a key element of recovery is confession and testimony, it is the sharing of one’s story of making one’s self vulnerable, so that healing and recovery can take place. 

Hello, I am Gary, I am a recovering addict and I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. 

For those who may be wondering, yes I have been and I am still addicted to a number of things, but I am in recovery…

... confess your sins to one another and pray for one another that you may be healed. … from James 5:16
