The best and hardest way to get over addictions is to fast them.  Fasting is when you lay off something you think is more important than God is.  I know it's sounds hard, but there are many creative…Continue

Step one is the hardest, to admit you are powerless over your addiction and that your life has become unmanageable.  That's a hard step!  And some addictions are easy to hide, so people have no clue.

I'm now dealing with Leukemia and other health issues, so when I get put into bed, I'm in bed for the night.  So I went out and bought an Amazon Echo.  And it's funny because being I can't talk, I use a computer voice to talk to the Echo, so you have two computer voices talking to each other.  Anyway, when I first got it, I asked for WHKW, and it misunderstood and went to STAR 93.3.  That's the best station on Earth.  Delilah was the first voice I heard.  I program speech software to sing, so I am programming the songs that they play.  I love "HE IS WITH US".  The Bible says if we don't praise His name, the rocks and stones will.  Well, since software is not alive, and the voice is made up of computer generated sounds, then maybe I am programming a rock to sing?  So it kind of helps me because I'm not a rock, yet God is with me always!  So, if you feel like giving into your addiction, just play my version of the song.  God wants more than a voice of a rock, He wants to hear you, God is with you.  http://www.theflameofhope.co/songs/HE%20IS%20WITH%20US.mp3

Hi.  I have struggled with different addictions throughout my life.  Been in treatment, been in counseling, been on meds....you name it.  I have been addicted to drugs and alcohol, cutting and an eating disorder.  I have been free from all of those things well over a year until last weekend when I found myself in possession of one of my favorite old drugs and gave in without giving it a second thought.  Part of me hoped it wouldn't be as good as I remembered, but it was and ever since then it has been hard to stop thinking about it.  I am doing my best to stay away from places and people who could provide me with more, but it is hard.  I don't want the lifestyle anymore, at all!, but i just want that feeling.  This Tuesday is a terrible anniversary for me and I am terrified I am not strong enough to face it, which makes me want to use more.  The past years on this anniversary I have ended up in the ICU, used until I couldn't even tell you my name, locked myself in my room for days, been in a psych ward....nothing positive.  I want this year to be different and I don't want that one slip up to bring me back into the world of addictions that i have been freed from.  Hmmm, I hate how easy it is to go back, but how hard it is to go forward!

Please please please pray for me. I am 19, and have been addicted to pornography since I was 13. About 6 months ago, I was finally able to open up to a friend at church, and now we are accountability partners. Over the last 2 Months, i have been able to go a maximum of 2 weeks without watching anything or masturbation. I am TIRED of living a double life and want my church life to be my only life. Prayer is a powerful thing, and boy do I need it

I'm addicted to cutting. I want to stop. But it's hard to. Because, it consumes my thoughts. So please pray for me to stop. Thanks

I need help and support to receive freedom from porn and stay pure in order to enjoy the abundant life only found in my Lord Jesus Christ and to restore my relationship with the Lord, myself and with my beautiful and adorable wife.

I need help as I am struggling like Alan Garner and many others. Please pray for me and I am hoping to find a support group or people I can talk to in the Orange County, California area.

I'm addicted to prescription pain pills and it seems like the harder I try to leave them alone the more it consumes my thoughts. It's like that's all I think about and I want to be delivered. I have no one in my life family or friends that care enough to help me I would like to ask everyone to pray for me and any advice will be greatly appreciated

I am a Christian addicted to porn! I hate it and I know God hates it, but I always end up on porn sites. Please pray for me!
