The Journey of Addiction

” Addiction is the Evil that will bring us down from within, we have to better understand it so we can turn a negative into a positive”

 

The power of Addiction is strong, it will control every fiber of your body, it will have you become someone of which you truly are not, it will have you do things that you normally would never do, Addiction is killing this Society one Individual at a time.

Addiction is many things and is not just limited to drugs and alcohol, being a Workaholic is a form of an Addiction, anything that gets you away from truly being who you are is a form of an Addiction, especially when you develop a taste for something, then crave that taste further, then as you are now within the claws of the Addiction, it becomes very hard to release the grip of the claws, you can escape the grip, but it will take a lot of hard work, to which most Addicts have already given up and are too lazy for any kind of fight or work.

The evil side of the Addiction is the most brutal and the darkest side, every day is a struggle, every day you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel simply because, the grip within the claws has you so wrapped up, that all the light is blocked and you can’t see anything but keeping the Addiction going. Envision yourself as being mauled by a Grizzly Bear and the Bear has you in his clutches so tight, all the wind is being squeezed out of you, at first thought you think this is the end I have no chance, but if you only give yourself a chance, fight with every last fight you have, you can escape the clutches of the Bear and get away, Addiction is the same and with every last fight, you can also escape the clutches of the Addiction, now this don’t mean you are done with the Bear or the Addiction, you still have to keep fighting every day, so the claws will never catch you within it’s grip again.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, we are all acceptable to any and all kinds of Addictions, the difference to some not getting into an Addiction is, being a product of your environment growing up, letting the life events control who you are and become, When you become a product of your environment as you grow up, now your not letting your inner child grow as it should and become healthy and happy as you should be on the out side. We all have this inner child within us, from the day we are born, til the day we die, just like we on the outside have to grow up into a Society of many, this inner child grows within us and when we don’t let this child grow properly, this is when we become accessible to all kinds of other issues especially Addiction.

This inner child is our lifeline, it is how we grow to be happy and at peace, this inner child is deep within our souls and when it grows normally, it will fill your whole body and your heart with a warmth, this warmth is the love of God within us and without it, we then become cold to all that is around us, we feel nothing and have no emotion of anything that comes before us along our path, which we then get picked up by the claws of Addiction, we become easy pray for all kinds of evil that wants to brainwash us into their evil ways, like those that become a Terrorist, these Individuals are so cold and have been so brainwashed, that to them their inner child does not exist and the thought of any love or empathy coming from them………… Let’s just say it does not exist. We are all Humans that walk a path through this journey of life, we are all a product of our environment as we grow into Society, our true growth depends on just how we let this inner child grow within us? If we ignore this child, then we will not grow properly like our inner child and become susceptible to anything that comes before us, whether it is good or it is evil. There is no text book to this journey, but God leaves it up to us to find a way and if we trust in him, have faith in him, then there is always the hope that we will follow in his footsteps, just as his son Jesus did when he came and walked his journey with us, Jesus also was tempted by the dark side, but he stayed true to who he was, kept the faith in his Father and he then never lost hope as he always felt the warmth of his love, then shared it with all that was around him.

It is much easier to feel the warmth of God’s love within us and share it with each other, than it is to get consumed by the dark side and the clutches of Addiction, but when we acknowledge this inner child within us, nurture and take care of it, we all can walk our paths through this journey of life, peacefully and within happiness throughout our existence.

 

” There are many forms of evil that will try to control who we are, it is the warmth of God’s love within us that keeps us from the clutches of the evil”

” We all have an inner child within us, it is important to never neglect this child for it’s proper growth”

” When our inner child grows properly, we to grow properly to be of who we truly are”

” Faith, love and hope are what we truly are, without them we become lost on our paths no matter what path we take”

  1. Great article! I just wanted to point out that to say “most” addicts are “too lazy,” is a bit of a misnomer. Most of us want sobriety, I myself have struggled, successfully to stay sober. That being said, you are right: staying sober is the hardest work on the earth. Namaste.
