Choice of Addiction
Tuesday, August 08, 2017
Over the last couple of weeks, I have heard the words of sadness over those lost to the devil's inducement to drugs as the panacea for worldly woes. HE IS A LIAR!
I never got into street drugs, but I hid behind cigarettes for 46 years. I have hidden behind another drug far too long, a drug that is always present. A drug that is given as a sign of love.
A whole TV show is about how this addiction destroys lives. This addiction allows you to grow a cloak of protection to hide behind. IT deprives you of participating with others in the basic joys of life. This addiction will keep you from enjoying the basic joys of play with children, and grandchildren. It denies you freedom of movement. It shields you against stepping out in faith that that next love will not burn you to your core when they leave. It seems these days to provide you with excuses too. It yells, "if you do not like me the way I am, I do." You hear yourself cry I can't help it. I do not have the will power. It tells you that you can't exercise. It says no one will love you and prevents them from getting close because of its consumption of your time and being.
It is overeating and fat. It robs you of your health, movement, and basic living skills. Yet you will continue to eat and remain ignorant of how you can change.
I KNOW, I have been there. It is a slow moving cancer that can be prevented. As with any addicition, you have to face the pain that got you there. You need to quit hiding your feelings, your pain, and your anger. You need to see health and help.
YOU AND YOU alone are responsible for what you put into your body.
In this day and age we hear a lot about choice. What is your choice?
