No One Decides To Be An Addict!
It Just Happens!
With food, drug, alcohol, and pornography addictions strangling our society today, this book provides hope for those caught in the never-ending cycle of trying to break free from addictions.
You will learn that addiction is a weak attempt to have real needs (purpose, unconditional love, security) met now, and our own efforts to meet those needs is a way try and maintain control over our life. This does not work and we actually loose control.
Often addicts first try to break free on their own, but author Anne Laidlaw points out that this is impossible and the only way to break free is being totally obedient to the ways and guidance of the Lord.
Laidlaw takes an in-depth look at addiction, not just the effects. She gets down to the cause, and offers encouragement and practical guidelines for those who want to discover the euphoria of breaking free.
Follow this easy, yet sometimes tough plan of freedom and build a relationship with God, who heals the brokenhearted.
