Dismantling the Addiction Cycle

Dismantling the Addiction Cycle

Identify Triggers

Set Boundaries

  • Desire – You can have all the knowledge, skills and resources you need to get started , but if you don’t have desire, it ain’t happening.
  • Discipline – You have to discipline yourself to follow through. Yes, it’s hard, it’s painful. Yes, it takes you out of your comfort zone, but it’s also temporary. Studies have shown that it takes 21 consecutive days of repeated activity to form a habit. You just have to stick with it. Keep your eyes on the larger goal.
  • Delight – Benefits of the habit that you never knew existed suddenly materialise.  So many times, we give up too soon. We allow our feelings to dictate our actions.  Feelings follow actions, not the other way around. Develop momentum that makes the habit easy to continue.

Letting God in

Renouncing Baal and Ashteroth – false gods and beliefs

Healing and Freedom

Staying Free

  • Know your enemy and how he operates
    • Satan tries to get you feeling Discouraged, Disillusioned, Disappointed, Disconnected and Defeated.
  • Know the truth and maintain freedom – need God’s help
  • Build boundaries [walls] and guard gates
  • Be accountable – trusted others
  • Help your children and others

Remember

  • God loves you no matter where you are at.
  • Don’t believe the Devil’s lies. 
  • You have the righteousness of Christ and that you are God’s son.
  • What you DO can never change WHO YOU ARE in Him.
  • Build your walls and guard your gates. 
  • Go at the pace that the Holy Spirit establishes for you.
