1. Your first step towards breaking free from the power of addictions
is to admit that you are addicted and that you need help. Jesus
says that when we confess ours sins He is just and faithful to forgive
our sins. I John 1:9
2. Your next step towards breaking free from the power of addictions
is acknowledging Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. This
means that you believe that Jesus is the only Son of God, was born
of the Virgin Mary
and died for your sins. John 3:16 says that "God so loved the
World that He gave his one and Only Son that whoever believes on him
have everlasting life."

God's ways are not our ways. Sometimes God chooses to work slowly in
our lives. Breaking free from addictions is rarely an over night miracle.
Don't allow past failures to keep you from trying again.
3. Pray with us out loud, now.
- Dear Jesus, I confess that I am weak right now. I repent of my
sins and ask you to forgive me for them. I ask you to help me begin
again. I confess that I am in bondage and ask that by the power
of the Holy Spirit and the blood of Jesus that you set me free.
Thank-you for freedom.
4. Resolve in your heart to do whatever is necessary to gain freedom:
therapy, small groups discussions, deliverance, rehabilitation.
5. Resist the Devil. The Bible says, "Resist
the devil and he will flee from you." James 4:7 Whenever you
feel the old temptations arising again pull out your Bible and
begin to read God's word.
Pray saying, "Jesus I need your help right now. Satan, I command
you by the blood of Jesus Christ to cease and desist." Do
not allow your mind to entertain unclean thoughts or thoughts about
your addiction. When they come into your mind immediately divert
your attention. Philippians 4:8 says, "Finally, brothers,
whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever
is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything
is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things."
6. You will need support from a local church. Most churches with
large congregations will provide free counseling to help deliver
you from addictions. Jesus can set you free from your addictions.
You may still have times of temptation and will need to find a
strong support team to give you strength when you feel like taking
drugs. There are several ways you might go about finding a support
a. One source of help in most areas is the Yellow pages of your
local telephone book. If you look under Drug Addiction and Treatment
you should be able to find treatment centers and support groups.
b. Another source of help will be churches in your community.
If you attend church contact your minister and tell him/her how
are struggling and that you need help. If he/she does not provide
help contact some of the larger congregations in your area
and ask who does have support groups for addictions.
c. Christian Recovery International provides
information on finding support groups through Internet sources.
d. Overcomers Outreach Network will
help you find meetings in your area.
7. Find a mentor or someone to whom you can be accountable. Anytime
you are struggling this is the person you will call and get prayer
support. A true friend will be someone you can call any time for
help and who will listen to you.
8. Breaking addictions is not an easy over-night task. God is
mighty to deliver you but you have established bad habits which
time to be broken. Satan does not want you to be free. The good
news is that God is sovereign and mighty. He will deliver you.
